Quote: Lyndon Baines Johnson


“I don’t want loyalty. I want loyalty! I want him to kiss my ass in Macy’s window at high noon and tell me it smells like roses. I want his pecker in my pocket.”

President Lyndon Baines Johnson (1908-1973) outlines the degree of loyalty he  expects from those around him, in the context of discussing a prospective assistant. 
Quoted by D Halberstam in The Best and the Brightest (1972)
