    It takes an oldy like me to recognize this association.  I remember Orson Bean.

    Orson Bean

    His father was a co-founder of the American Civil Liberties Union, a fund-raiser for the Scottsboro Boys' defense, and ....

    He is a first cousin twice removed of Calvin Coolidge, who was President of the United States at the time of Bean's birth.[2]

    Bean was blacklisted by the Hollywood movie studios in the 1950s for attending two Communist Party meetings, but made numerous appearances on television and in the theater.

    A conservative Christian, he came out in support of the Proposition 8 ballot initiative in California.[5][6] He was father-in-law to the late Andrew Breitbart and jokingly describes his own children, who are all married, as "little communists"

    It's difficult to be happy knowing so many suffer. We must unite.
