Steven Bannon---outside the tent

It's probably better to have him inside the tent pissing out, than outside the tent pissing in.  - Lyndon B. Johnson

LBJ supposedly said that about FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover, as quoted in The New York Times (31 October 1971). I thought of that quote when a TV talking head provided a sanitized version, like this from Charles Krauthammer:

"I think that's exactly why he is likely to stay on," Krauthammer said. "Because if you calculate, as you just did, it's infinitely safer to keep him inside the tent, to keep him on the periphery perhaps, but keeping an eye on him."
