"Politics Makes Strange Bed-Fellows"

Here's an earlier APS one, which fits into your request for not the exact
phrase, but shows the concept was there earlier:

_The New World:  A Weekly Family Journal of Popular Literature, Science, Art
and...._ May 15, 1841; 2, 20; pg 308  **note by SC--this is a six page
article, with no page numbers showing--so I'm only saying pg 308, as that is
what APS lists at the top.  Also, my reading is that this is reprinted from
_Blackwood's Magazine_ and is a novel (called "Ten Thousand a Year" ?).

"Misery makes strange bed-fellows, but surely politics stranger still;  "
