October 1, 1951 — The Chicago Daily Tribune
This brief, self-explanatory editorial ribbed Senator Paul Howard Douglas (1892-1976), a former economics professor who represented Illinois from 1949 to 1967 as a Democrat. In 1972, columnist Holmes Alexander defined him as an “emotional patriot”.
In their January 1, 1952 lead editorial, FAREWELL, ‘51, HELLO ‘52, the Tribune rehashed their October gag, noting these as oratory milestones: “Premier Mossadegh of Iran accompanied every public oration with a fit of weeping. Sen. Paul Douglas howled in the Senate.”
Once was more than enough.
