Monroe was the last founding father to become president. He also governed during what was called "the Era of Good Feelings," a shocking period in American history where there was little partisan strife. He admitted the Missouri territory, and bought Florida in 1821 (for which, as a Florida resident, I don't think I'll ever be able to forgive him). Personally, I can't believe that nobody ever created an iPhone or Android app called Hanging Chad, but maybe that's just me.
In any case, in honor of the Era of Good Feelings, we bring you the source of all happiness, Ben & Jerry’s Scoop of Happiness. Just be careful. Happiness can be fattening.
John Quincy Adams was the George W. Bush of his time, the first son of a former president. He was an avid reader (John Quincy, that is), knew several languages, but also suffered from depression. Because JQ was instrumental in creating the Smithsonian Institution, we bring you the Smithsonian Mobile app for Android.
Andrew Jackson is known for defeating the British at the Battle of New Orleans. He also helped found the Democratic Party, something that Rush Limbaugh and Glenn Beck will be forever grateful for. Perhaps, not coincidentally, his presidential opponents called him a "jackass" and that stuck, first as the mascot for the Democratic party, and then as a good way to describe most of America's currently serving politicians, regardless of party.
Completely appropriate to our commentary on the political system, we present Jackass: 10 Years of Stupid for your iPad.
