Dick Nixon?

Sounds like someone did.

Fucking hit piece.  When all else fails, beat up on Nixon.

THE MAN IS DEAD!!!
This is so bad, I'd root for the Orioles over this fucking team, but I can't. Because they're a fucking drug and you can't kick it and they'll never win anything and they'll always suck, but it'll always be sunny at Wrigley and there will be tits and ivy and an old scoreboard and fucking Chads.

Better than I could have imagined.

BC makes a disturbingly believable Juggalo.

That's just really not fair.
Desipio is a free-flowing website that occasionally touches on the immaturity, foolishness and outright stupidity of its readership.

That's just really not fair. ICP Forever
So I think we've reached the point where MLB teams have hired every last one of the big/innovative brains that the old BP produced, and now we're left with a bunch of navel-gazing 25 year old chuckleheads.

Just finished this up...I have to say that going in, I thought I knew enough about Nixon (in general) and the politics in the 20th century (in particular) that little would shock me.

So, it was kind of a nice surprise (I guess) to find that I wasn't quite as jaded as I thought I was.

Anyway, RV pretty much sums up the subject better than I could:
god damn was he a venal, paranoid, rotten motherfucker.

I was kind of disappointed that it ended after the '72 McGoverning.  Does anybody have any recommended reading on Watergate?

More of a buzzfeed parody, but the subject matter is positively Gil.

"...by the time he stepped to the plate, he was more than 60% of the way toward being on first base already.

That is absolutely staggering."

Nixon: the gift that keeps on giving.

This is what it takes to drag me back to this site full of degenerates?  Nixon and panda fucking?
