  •  maybe Knodell == Butterfield... (7+ / 0-)

    Who had ever heard the name Alexander Butterfield prior to July, 1973?

    That's when he told the Ervin Committee and the American people that Richard Nixon had bugged his own office and kept the tapes.  

    Not that I expect anything like that, but it's a great dream to hang onto.

    •  Oh yeah, baby (4+ / 0-)

      I remember that now like it was yesterday. Thanks for the nudge. Since alot of these guys cut their teeth in the Nixon administration do you think they were stupid enough to do it again.

      It wouldn't surprise me if they did only this time maybe they put it on video!!!!

    •  I'll never forget hearing "I guess I heard it in (3+ / 0-)

      the tapes." I was doing some work for a campaign, stuffing envelopes with a bunch of people, listening to the radio. You could have heard a pin drop. A few minutes of glee, then someone asked, "what color is the smoke when you burn a tape? I mean, is it like when the pope is elected and the smoke is white, where if he hasn't been elected the smoke is black? How big a fireplace do they have at the Whitehouse?"

      We figured Nixon would burn the tapes. We should have figured out that he would want to keep records for his legasy . Legasy matters for these guys, which is OT here, but I'm afraid for Iran.
