No Kicking Him Around Anymore


"I gave 'em a sword. And they stuck it in, and they twisted it with relish. And I guess if I had been in there position, I'd have done the same thing."

You know who said that? Richard Nixon, poor, dreadful, resentful, ever furious, dutiful, conniving Richard Nixon, 37th President of the United States, born 99 years ago today. And I surely would write more about him, but I've got loads of other things awaiting doing. Ah well. Plenty has been written by about him already. Anyway, as hard as he was on others and on the nation, I'd be willing to bet he was equally, everlastingly nasty w/ himself.

Sigh...

  1. Sad to think that in some ways he was our next to last liberal president.
