Hard to believe, but ...

Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein look back and conclude that -- shock, surprise -- Richard Nixon was scum.

Their thesis, with which I heartily concur, is that Nixon was at war with the country itself, fighting five assorted battles. If you were:
  • Opposed to the war in Vietnam
  • A member of or consumer of a free press
  • A Democrat
  • Concerned about rampant corruption and double-dealing
  • In a category much harder to define: those who resist the revision of history by the intellectually dishonest and personally interested
then you were on his enemies list, whether he knew your name or not. I'm proud to count myself in that number.
