23 September - Dogs in Politics Day
What are dogs in politics? It stems from the generic use of the term to mean a small and seemingly unimportant entity (the tail) controls a bigger, more important one (the dog). It is usually used by a politician when they are in a scandal, in hopes that people forget about the scandal and focus on the more important issue.
The Checkers speech or Fund speech was a speech delivered on September 23, 1952, by California Senator Richard Nixon, six weeks before the 1952 United States presidential election, in which he was the Republican candidate for Vice President. Nixon had been accused of irregularities related to a fund established by his backers to reimburse him for his political expenses. His place on the Republican ticket was in question, so he flew to Los Angeles and gave a half-hour television speech in which he defended himself, attacked his opponents, and urged the audience to contact the Republican National Committee (RNC). to tell you if you should stay on the ticket. During the speech, he stated that he intended to keep one gift, regardless of the outcome: a black and white Cocker Spaniel that his children had named Ladies, thus giving the address his popular name.
