I used to not think "flaming liberal" when I thought of Nixon, but when the Jon Birch Socie-Tea came into being...

That would explain the bitterness and maybe the paranoia, so yes.

The JBS was around then, and roundly mocked by everyone.

He pulled down higher quality tail than Clinton, so he has that going for him. Which is nice.

Accent on that last misspelling of the name. (Not the "Jon," I was just lazy.) I'm not talking about the JBS, but I am. Dig?

Hopeless, yes.  Romantic, no.

How Niel Young found out about Pat's nickname was Tin Soldier the world will never know.... and then how that related to Kent is beyond me.

Robert Coover certainly portrayed him as such.

Well, maybe in the sense that protagonists in romantic comedies often resort to outrageous (and often illegal) measures to get the object of their affections to fall in love with them...

Agreed. Doesn't he look happy?

I usually go with "Proof that elites are above the law in the U.S.", or simply "felon without a conviction" when II need something shorter.

When I think of Richard Nixon, I think of Hunter Thompson training his dog to attack an effigy's crotch on command. It's a beautiful image.

No, when I think Richard Nixon I think "oh, the guy that intentionally prolonged the Vietnam war for political gain and is directly responsible for 15k dead American soldiers." The man was treasonous garbage and no one should bring him up without spitting on his grave. Too bad there's no such place as hell, it's disappointing to see such evil men get off so easy with death.

"Nixon in Love" - something about that. Maybe this is the band name.

No subby Nixon was a dangerous paranoid person who could have set of the nukes.

When I think of Nixon, I imagine him being in a mental hospital or prison for the rest of his life.

Neither only did not happen, but he was sought after for policy decisions (like Kissinger) and was buried with honors. That's right. One of the most disgraceful Americans--buried with honors.

Nixon? No... but Kissinger? Now we're talking!

Let's all give a big thank you to Jerry Ford for setting the stage for everything that followed.

When  think Nixon I think, "Way better than W."
