  •  P.S. re Tricky Dick (2+ / 0-)
    Recommended by:

    It is a good and joyful thing that Richard Nixon's place in history is inseparable from the nickname Tricky Dick.  That is part of the permanent shame laid upon him in exchange for the harm he did to the constitution, harm much less severe and less far reaching than Bush has done, BTW.

    Bush 43 deserves to be remembered forever as the president who spawned an endless number of nasty nicknames.  (I hear his people are particularly annoyed by "Smirking Chimp.")  If Dubyanocchio or any of those other names eventually stick in the same way as "Tricky Dick", following W for the rest of his life and beyond, that will be an important contribution to political history and a fitting reflection on the disaster that his stolen presidency has wrought on our country and the world.

    Politics is like driving. To go backward, put it in R. To go forward, put it in D.
