How to Watch the President on Television

An article by Paul Krassner that commemorated the passing of Anita Hoffman recounts a memory from December   1967:

Still tripping, we [i.e., Abbie Hoffman, Anita and Paul] watched Lyndon Johnson being interviewed. The TV set was black and white, but L.B.J. on LSD was purple and orange.

His huge head was sculpted into Mount Rushmore.

"I am not going to be so puddingheaded as to stop our half of the war," he was saying.

Now the heads of the other presidents -- George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Abraham Lincoln, Theodore Roosevelt -- were all snickering to themselves and covering their mouths with their hands so they wouldn't laugh out loud.
