Leading Question of the Day (From a Few Days Ago)

Scott Adams posed this question:

If you took these three people and morphed them together, who would you get?

1. Frank Sinatra (from the skinny Rat Pack years)

2. Sammy Davis Junior

3. Bobby Kennedy

I think I see where he's going with this.

Must be none other than Rufus Jones.

Poking around with Google found this well stated defense of the above video, along with a better quality version for download, as well as a ton of stills.

While poking around Wikipedia, noted this interesting bit(grain of salt should be taken, but it is footnoted, and it's consistent with the Kennedys' behavior) about Sammy's treatment by Pres. Kennedy
Although Davis had been a voting Democrat, he had felt a distinct lack of respect from the John F. Kennedy White House. He had been removed from the bill of the inaugural party hosted by Sinatra for the new President because of Davis's recent interracial marriage. Davis had married Swedish actress May Britt (pronounced "My Brit") on November 13, 1960.

Talk about bringing everything around for the big finish, that bit includes the Presidency, the Kennedys, Frank Sinatra and Sammy Davis.
