Did You Know?
[in 1946, about Gen. Douglas MacArthur
] He got his first star in 1918 and that means he's had almost 30 years as a general--30 years of people playing to him and kissing his ass, and doing what he wants. That's not good for anyone.
Four-star American army general nicknamed "Vinegar Joe" for his sour demeanor and lack of tact (he made no secret of the fact that he detested Gen. Douglas MacArthur
, considering him a poor leader, a sub-par tactician and a self-serving egomaniac). Gained fame in World War II for his campaign against the Japanese in Southeast Asia, mainly Burma. Portrayed in the 'Steven Spielberg (I)' film 1941
