  My favorite comment from the Civil War involved General John Pope, but I haven't been able to discover who the originator of it was.

  John Pope was prone to making bombastic statements and speeches. When he came east, he said that his: "Headquarters would be in the saddle." Someone then said that Pope: "Had his headquarters where his hindquarters ought to be." Its hard to top that one.
