A little Friday oddity

Who was Roman Hruska? A guy with an odd comment and an odd tribute reference that I think came posthumously. That's all.

Roman Hruska a Republican Senator, was rendered semi-immortal in American political history after a 1970 speech he made urging fellow Senators to confirm G. Harrold Carswell to the Supreme Court. Responding to push back over Carswell's mediocrity as a judge, Hruska stated:
"Even if he were mediocre, there are a lot of mediocre judges and people and lawyers. They are entitled to a little representation, aren't they, and a little chance?"

Sticking up for mediocrity as sticking up for the little guy is a bit odd. But does that make him immortal? No. A line near the end of this twisted little comedy ditty called Dead Puppies does. The reason for his inclusion is completely unclear.

Warning- if you have a soft spot for puppies, you might not appreciate this. However no actual puppies were harmed in the making of this song or this video. It's not real, just weird. Please don't take offense.
