Freaky Fact Friday.

Did you know the expression O.K. came from the Presidential election of 1840?
The democratic candidate, Martin Van Buren, was nicknamed "The Wizard of Kinderhook" after a Hudson Valley village called "Old Kinderhook," Van Buren's Birthplace. Because of this village and their candidates nickname, one of the Democratic groups formed to support Van Buren in New York City called itself "The Democratic O.K. Club." Other Democratic supporters then picked up the term O.K. as a sort of slogan, Democratic hooligans even used it as a war-cry when the attempted to harass and breakup meetings of the Whig party.
Soon after the phrase caught on generally as a synonym for being "All Right", because an O.K. candidate, was a good one, according to the Democrats.
