The Kennedy debates are so his Combat Rock.
"For the same reason, Mr. Vanocur, nobody ever pointed a telescope at the sun."
I thought I'd posted this already, but heres Nixon's grandson and his bizarre, inflatable, robbed-from-the-cradle wife in China.

I can hear clearly in Dick's voice, "She's nothing to look at, son, but she's got large bosoms."

I need to make friends with someone who can do a Nixon impersonation and make him say stuff.

Carlin once said that the essence to doing a Nixon impersonation is to think of something who hasn't had a shit in a week. From that degree of constipation, all else flows (so to speak).

Given your skill at a general American accent, I say just look in the mirror, son.

My favourite Nixon imitation is Homer's effort, consisting of "Let me say this about that."

I don't hold politicians in very high regard, but I liked Richard Nixon. He wouldn't stab you in the back. He'd stab you right in the belly and tell you he was doing it. He was not a pretentious man.

If by "tell you" you mean secretly record his seething threats and plots on audio tape so they would eventually, after a Supreme Court battle become public so we could read his 'enemies list' , then yea, I guess that's one redeeming feature of the guy.

Nobody impersonated Nixon better than Nixon himself. My favorite was "Crazy Nixon'.

Me: I'm reading a cool book about Nixon at the moment.
Her: (mock annoyed, being funny) Nixon, Nixon, Nixon. There's three people in this relationship. Me, you, and bloody Nixon.
Me: I seriously think this is the second time I've ever said his name to you.
Her: Oh. What's the other one's name?
Me: What other one?
Her: That you bang on about?
Me: You mean Kennedy?
Her: Yeah.

Watched All the President's Men Revisited today. Generally mediocre, not least of which for having folks like Jon Stewart and Rachel Maddow, who were kids at the time, offering their opinions, but it does have a fantastic bit where Ben Stein, who was a speechwriter in the Nixon White House, wept and called Nixon a saint and the most unfairly persecuted public figure in American history. Absolutely insane.
