On This Day, 32 Years Ago . . .

Everybody remember the "Saturday Massacre?" Okay, neither do I -- I was still months away from being born. Even so, it's almost like we do remember it, so fiercely is it seared into this nation's political consciousness.

And probably the only question right now is just how far away from this are we (temporally, not factually, since factually we know that something is going to give, and soon)? No doubt the rats are going to be armed and firing over their shoulders as they flee the ship . . . . Should be good fun to watch, but for the whole destroying-the-United-States-government's-credibility-in-the-eyes-of-the-entire-world-including-that-of-its-own-citizens factor.

Even so . . . I'll bring the beer. Somebody else is in charge of popcorn.

You're such a ba-by! Not even born! I suppose that having Watergate as my first political memory explains why I am such a twisted person.
