Fun fact, Betts’ son tours with a band I used to love named Dawes. I say used to love because they’ve gone from Laurel Canyon rock to soft ass stuff. It coincided with the lead singer marrying Mandy Moore. That now counts two of my favorite artists having had their music ruined by marrying her.

The poll is interesting and it's great and all, but how can I lend credence to something that completely fails to recognize this good old Whig party favorite? It's practically common knowledge that Zachary Taylor, and before him, William Henry Harrison, used to gather round on the regular downing bottles of Robitussin where'd they robotrip out of their gourds to this shit. All the history books say.
Who do you think pioneered the whole robotrip craze? The Whig party, that's who. What; you think people only started housing copious amounts of Dextromethorphan back in the 90's? Pffft. Think again. Try the 40's...the 1840's.
You think it's a coincidence that Harrison only served exactly one month in office before suddenly kicking the bucket simply because he just happened to catch a cold? Yeah, he caught a cold all right. And he tried treating it with buckets of Robitussin, tripping out to this stuff. That's what did him in. And the whole posthumous change of death diagnosis to septic shock caused from "enteric fever" (whatever the fu*k that is) that the doc's slapped on him...PLEASE. Classic roboptrip death. Textbook really.
And as for fellow Whig party president, 9 years Harrison's successor in office, Zach "the maniac" Taylor? You think his brief year and 4 month tenure in office 'til death did him part was also some mere coincidence? Nnnnnope. So I'm sure it was the profuse amounts of "raw fruit and iced milk" he consumed, which caused him to fall gravely ill and die just a handful a days later, to which his death was ambiguously attributed to as an "unknown digestive ailment". I mean, c'mon, gimme a break. Nah, couldn't have been that good old Whig party party favorite - a whole lotta tussin with the tussin' sauce - that did it. Dude was a Whig party member tried and true. Robotrip. No doubt. No hesitation.
I know. Mind blown, right?
Anyhow, didn't mean to go all Jon Meacham on you guys with the history lesson. Back to what I was originally saying: the Whig party folk - including the 9th and 12th presidents of the United States - they used to to listen to this type of shit all the time. I dunno. Kinda weird if you ask me.
