    A very long time ago the worst President in modern history, until W. came on the scene, Tricky Dick, was up to his eyeballs in shit.  

    He appeared on national TV in an attempt to worm his way out of a mess and he spoke about his humble background, how poor he and Pat were (she didn't have a mink coat) and how he had worked his way through college. He compared his hard and humble upbringing to wealthy Democrats. Toward the end of his speech, Nixon wove in a story about his dog Checkers.  

    It was a feeble attempt to make Tricky Dick seem like a regular hard working guy like Joe America.  

    The problem is, no matter how good the speech writer, how brilliant an actor a candidate it, Republicans are simply not hard wired to behave as or care about regular guys.  Their true talent lies in duping and manipulating them.  

    If the McCain campaign has to fabricate a JTP, they are truly desperate.

    If anyone is interested in reading Nixon's Checkers speech, check it out below.
