For political humor
It is better to vote for what you want and not get it than to vote for what you don't want and get it.--Eugene Debs
Show me a man that gets rich by being a politician, and I'll show you a crook.--Harry Truman
Star Trek frequently tried to address social issues, but they were completely lacking in subtlety, and the over-acting was piled high.
The final 1968 season, methinks. At the beginning, Spock refers to the planet as being in “the southern part of the galaxy.” No, not subtle at all.
And William Shatner was exceeded in overacting only by William Windom in “The Doomsday Machine.” That one was an overacting contest, the only one that Shatner lost.
