TRUTH !!
Many of Foghorn's statements came from this comedic performance by Kenny
Delmar.
Senator Beauregard Claghorn was a popular fictional radio character on the
"Allen's Alley" segment of The Fred Allen Show, beginning in 1945.
Succeeding the vaguely similar but not nearly as popular Senator Bloat from
the earliest "Allen's Alley" routines, Senator Claghorn, portrayed by
Allen's announcer, Kenny Delmar, was a blustery Southern politician whose
home was usually the first at which Allen would knock. Claghorn would
typically answer the door with, "Somebody, ah say, somebody knocked!
Claghorn's the name, Senator Claghorn, that is. I'm from the South. Suh."[
