Dick thinks Susan could have been a little more tactful about his White House years in the comment box over the weekend. But he's grudgingly consented to give us the benefit of his counsel on some of his old enemies and new bêtes noire:
Another rich boy who thinks he has it coming to him, like Kennedy. He'll probably fold, like his candy-ass father after he talked a big game.
Dumb as hell but friendly, as I said when he was my mole on the Watergate committee. Sam Dash ran rings around him, and he's even dimmer today.
Used to think I saw a bit of myself in him in his better moments. But of course they're not like us. They smell different. Plus the bastard compared me to Bernie Kerik.
Growing on me, especially after he appointed Fred Malek (who counted Jews for me in '71) as his national finance co-chair. Even calls Malek "an inspiring public servant who has served our nation well." Credit where credit is due.
Best instincts of this bunch of clowns by far, even if he does look like Gomer Pyle. What's in the water in Dogpatch, Ark.?
Whatever it was, she didn't drink it. Now Bill loved the lucidity of my mind, like Gergen said: he got me.
But I always say that if the wife comes through as being too strong and too intelligent, it makes the husband look like a wimp. I mean Pat is spinning in her grave, for Christ's sake. And she never had to lock up the interns.
We don't owe the blacks a damn thing. Especially one who thinks he's better than we are.
What's Segretti up to these days? We need someone working full-time on that middle name.
Did his best to screw us with the Pentagon Papers, back in the day. Now everybody laughs at him, which is perfect.
Elmer Gantry in a $5,000 suit. All that poor-mouthing about his father the millworker: what a load of crap. I know what it means to have nothing, but we're Republicans. We don't talk about it.
Are you shitting me?
The guy I don't understand is the other Dick. Why isn't he fighting for it? Did he set his own office on fire?
I'm pinning my hopes on a brokered convention — which could happen if the voters never settle on any of these pygmies.
So if they deadlock in the Twin Cities, I'll be there before you can yell Milhous. I'm just saying.
