Does anyone remember the Bush-broccoli connection. Bush senior said 'I hate that vegetable. Send them to Barbara, she likes them' and banned them on Air Force One. The Air Force One kitchen had a placard that said 'broccoli-free zone' or some such thing. As a protest, the farmers sent a huge consignment to the White House!
