T. Boone Pickens
Oil tycoon, republican, croaked Okie.
May 22, 1928 – September 11, 2019.
Aged 91 years.

Most recognized for: A notorious corporate raider from Oklahoma, T. Boone made a newsworthy name for himself by acquiring large fossil fuel companies in the 80’s.  In the mid 2000’s, he offered up a $1M dollar bounty for proof that presidential candidate John Kerry’s purported Vietnam war record was a crock of sh!t. Nearing the end, he had suffered multiple stokes and falls… and yet was not selected by anyone in the DRCDP… leaving us with the slimmest of pickin’s.
