What a Crook

In between superhero video games, I watched "All the Presidents Men" and "Frost/Nixon" (the actual interview, not the new CGI remake).

Wow.

I'm not going to say much more... but if you ever thought Nixon got a bum wrap, then you need to see him slither under the gaze of Frost. At the same time, I admit having some compassion for the man.

It's an amazing interview... you need to watch it. It's available as an "instant watch" on Netflix, and I advise taking the 90 minutes or whatever it is... it's mind-blowing for those of us weren't politically cognizant in the 70's.

The GOP is Nixon's party... Reagan was a bit player.
