The skeleton of Richard III of England was discovered a few years ago, ignominiously reposing beneath a public garage, (making him the “par-King, hee hee, sorry!) Of course there’s been a school of revisionist thought about the monarch Shakespeare so unforgettably villainized. But the deformed despot has, generally, been someone we love to hate.
And so has our last American Richard: Nixon.
Had there ever (till now, at least) been a president the Left hated soooo much? And has the Left ever had a better time than the glory days when he left office in disgrace, leaving the innocuous Gerald Ford to shuffle around keeping the lights and heat on in the White House until 1976 when ANY Dem, even the toothy, sanctimonious Jimmy, was guaranteed to sweep into Washington on the tide of distaste for Nixon!
But wait: there WAS sump’n to like about Tricky Dick in retrospect during October 2016: he lost the 1960 election very narrowly, but he decided not to contest it. Nixon the gracious loser. Anybody remember those articles? That was when the Dems suffered so much angst about the fact that sure-loser Trump might not just go away quietly. (No, I know, I just won’t even…)
And NOW, lo: the once despiséd Richard riseth again: Pelosi said “At least Nixon cared enough about the country to resign”. (And do thou likewise, Donald.it’s the LEAST you could do, just like it would’ve been only decent of you to accept the result if Dems had rigged 2016 like they did 1960…j
So um, the only way Trump can possibly redeem himself in the eyes of history at this point is if he BAILS OUT ON COMPLETING THE JOB THE AMERICAN PEOPLE ELECTED HIM TO DO! Nothing in his term could become him so well as the abandoning of it! She now likes the evil Nixon, proving himself a patriot at the last by falling upon—not HIS sword, but the one the Dems were obligingly pressing to his gut.
BE Nixon, gracious loser, abdicator in chief! That is the only proper rôle for a Republican in THIS day’n’age, c’mon, man!
And if you do, well, we can’t promise anything, but..maybe..some day…
..we’ll forgive even you! Hold YOU up. as a worthy example of a president who did the “right“thing because he personally could not endure any more persecution by the Left.
…You wish, Nanny. Nice nap? Wakey-wakey!
