Fact of the Day: Democratic Comedy

One of Hollywood's most notable celebrities in the early 20th century was Will Rogers. He was quite notable for his jokes and political wit. One example of his humor being "Everything is changing. People are taking the comedians seriously and the politicians as a joke." While he supported members of both parties at times, he was partisan which he admitted with some added humor "I belong to no organized party, I'm a Democrat." His son Will Rogers Jr. served as a Democratic Congressman for California in 1943-1944.
