“There is a long-standing tradition in the U.S. Capitol that August senators should be able to dine every single day on common bean soup. Its presence has become the stuff of legend and various legislators are given credit for inaugurating the dish.  

Joseph G. Cannon, Speaker of the House from 1903 to 1911, has the most colorful  claim, having burst out one day in protest after perusing the menu: ‘Thunderation, I had my mouth set for bean soup! From now on, hot or cold, rain snow or shine, I want it on the menu every day.’  

With this demand, the cooks willingly obliged and all eleven Capital dining rooms have served it every day ever since.”

from “Beans, A History” by Ken Albala
