Interview with Joseph Rauh
QUESTION 18
INTERVIEWER:

LET ME GIVE YOU A COUPLE OF NAMES AND JUST GIVE ME SORT OF A REACTION TO THEM. EVERETT DIRKSON?

Joseph Rauh:

Everett Dirkson, um, uh, did help us with the 1964 Civil Rights Law. Everett Dirkson was a guy who came in on your side when you'd won. Uh, he was the guy who'd say, "This is an idea whose time has come." Sure, you already had it won, so he could get in and say, this is an idea's uh, whose time has come, so he was now going to be on your side. I would say that he is a um, a malefilous, pious, polypolitical, palled cipher.
