Regular Nixon or robot Nixon?

And still not convicted of any war crimes. Because laws are to keep the little people in line, nothing more.

He looks like Miracle Max from the Princess Bride, only more evil.

That which is already dead cannot die, subby. Kissinger merely sleeps, and waits, and when the stars are right, he will rise again.

If there were ever a top list of someone who knows where the bodies are buried, Kissinger would top it.

Ask Anna Maria Tremonti about that one.

Kissinger didn't bother with burying the bodies.

"The crowd sang "Happy Birthday" to a video of Nixon himself playing the tune on a piano "

What the actual fark?

"I considered Richard Nixon one of my warmest life-long friends, whom I knew even before he was elected president of the United States twice," Billy Graham said in the letter, read by his son.

"Three times," a man yelled from the crowd.

It was a reference to the widely held belief among the Nixon faithful that he actually beat John F. Kennedy in the 1960 presidential campaign.


Jesus.

There's a persistent story (legend?) that back in the 1970s a reporter interviewing Henry's younger brother Walter observed that Walter had acquired an excellent American accent while Henry still spoke with his thick German accent. "That", replied Walter, "is because Henry never listens to anybody else."

Kissinger is also still unforgiven for causing the retirement of Tom Lehrer.

Augusto Pinochet is in Hell right now, leaning against a wall. The music plays and couples are out on the dance floor, dancing cheek-to-cheek.

Pinochet looks at his watch and wonders what is holding up his date: Henry Kissinger.

He must be.

If he was in a grave, I would have pooped on it.

Kissinger's a pimp. He came to my school a few years back and was hitting on the co-eds. I like him and damn the haters.

It seems to me very unfair that Kissinger lives and this guy is dead.

Alive? Hell, looking like that he talked his way into Jill St. John's bed. Not bad.

You look in the thread, you get excited that there isn't one, so you go look for a pic and post it only to find out that you got scooped 5 minutes earlier.

what I like about Kissinger is the raw, naked authoritarian exercise of power.

he's not hiding what he is or what he stands for and he's been wildly successful despite the near-universal revulsion we all profess for his views, because secretly we want the boot on our neck.

the man managed to literally rebrand fascism and make it our national policy for almost 20 years, for gods sake. his name is in my autocorrect dictionary by default. instant legend
 
2013-01-10 11:33:41 AM  
If only the good die young, Kissinger will be with us for many years to come.

FTA: ""The Republican Party in the last third of the 20th century was the house that Nixon built," said Buchanan."

Truer words were never spoken. And that's probably the worst part of his legacy.

And Buchanan should know.

Nixon was coldly mixing and pouring volatile passions. Although he was careful to renounce the extreme fringe of Birchites and racists, his means to power eventually became the end. Buchanan gave me a copy of a seven-page confidential memorandum-"A little raw for today," he warned-that he had written for Nixon in 1971, under the heading "Dividing the Democrats." Drawn up with an acute understanding of the fragilities and fault lines in "the Old Roosevelt Coalition," it recommended that the White House "exacerbate the ideological division" between the Old and New Left by praising Democrats who supported any of Nixon's policies; highlight "the elitism and quasi-anti-Americanism of the National Democratic Party"; nominate for the Supreme Court a Southern strict constructionist who would divide Democrats regionally; use abortion and parochial-school aid to deepen the split between Catholics and social liberals; elicit white working-class support with tax relief and denunciations of welfare. Finally, the memo recommended exploiting racial tensions among Democrats. "Bumper stickers calling for black Presidential and especially Vice-Presidential candidates should be spread out in the ghettoes of the country," Buchanan wrote. "We should do what is within our power to have a black nominated for Number Two, at least at the Democratic National Convention." Such gambits, he added, could "cut the Democratic Party and country in half; my view is that we would have far the larger half."

The Nixon White House didn't enact all of these recommendations, but it would be hard to find a more succinct and unapologetic blueprint for Republican success in the conservative era. "Positive polarization" helped the Republicans win one election after another-and insured that American politics would be an ugly, unredeemed business for decades to come.

Good, it's not too late to prosecute him for war crimes, and shove the Nobel prize up his hypocritical ass.

I don't know about that. Reagan brought in the social conservatives. If we had just stuck with remorseless evil without throwing in the moral piety, I believe Republicans would be a lot more tolerable.
