JOKES FOR USE IN HIS SPEECHES KENNEDY, JOHN F. Typed list of jokes for use in Pennsylvania speeches during 1960 campaign, unsigned, with several holograph notes and corrections, including holograph phrases in upper margins: "I left N.Y. early" on first page, and "Pennsylvania--my nomination came . . ." on the second. 2 pages, 4to, written on separate sheets; horizontal folds, faint scattered staining. Np, [September 1960]
His published nomination acceptance speech, delivered on September 14, includes a version of joke No. 4: "You can tell something about a political party by the title it gives its platform. We called ours 'The Rights of Man'. I'm not sure what the Republicans called theirs--but it may be 'The Power of Positive Thinking'." On the following day, versions of the following two jokes were also incorporated into speeches: No. 4 in the Zembo Mosque speech, and No. 5 in the Harrisburg speech.
