I remember a different LBJ quote after signing the Republicans Civil Rights act into law. "Now we'll have the n#%@@%$# voting Democrat for the next 100 years."

You certainly don’t remember LBJ saying that. The first reference to him saying that was in a book published in 1995. No proof was offered for the quote.

But..... LBJ was known to use the word in private conversation, so it wouldn’t have been out of character.
