This was President Lyndon Baines Johnson's philosophy of

politics & war. "I never trust a man unless I've got his

pecker in my pocket.", etc. He said the overall idea in

more words than this syaing and it is likely that Colson

merely distilled several Johnsonian phrases into the

nutshell. I'd give Johnson credit for the

spirit and inspiration of the

expression. And Colson for the literal, pithier formulation. ED
