Davy Crockett. An American with Balls!

As I mentioned, I'm in Texas this week, and there's something in the water that just makes a man feel more... Manly.
Something that someone said last night made be Google Davy Crockett, and MAN, did that dude have some huge balls!

One of the stories that was most impressive was that while he was running for re-election to Congress (yes, he was a US Congressman) he ran against the policies of the president; who just happened to be from his own party! When pushed to explain why he didn't stand in support of the president he said:

"I bark at no man's bid. I will never come and go, and fetch and carry, at the whistle of the great man in the White House no matter who he is."
