Daily Reminder - Those Were Dark Days For The Cause

25. Theodore Roosevelt

President: William McKinley, 1901

Party: Republican,

State: New York

If you ever want to feel like you’ve utterly wasted your life, look to Theodore Roosevelt. By the age of 42, he was already a war hero, a respected author, a cowboy, a governor of New York and a Vice President. Then, after William McKinley's assassination, he became the youngest president in American history. For fun, Roosevelt reportedly read two books a day and enjoyed skinny-dipping in the Potomac during winter.

Apparently each Vice President of the USA, has, at one time, been possessed or partially possessed by an octopus. Well that if these artworks by Jonathon Crow are to be believed. In fact, it was during such an assault that Teddy killed his first cephalopod and "forever swore to hasten their destruction wherever they may gather to do evil". It was Teddy, himself that first pondered the idea of a Cave of Cool from which to co-ordinate his attacks on the octopus as a way to protect the planet from their villainy. With most of the Congress under octopus control for most of US history, a secret base, known only to a select few, was essential.
