Most people hear the Republican Nominee for President & ask, Why? I hear the same nut job & ask, Why …. Not…… compare his rhetoric to another famous Republican Politician with, uh, tax & media difficulties? Step right up, Spiro T. Agnew, the Veep of my childhood, the only Politician I have ever written to. (The auto-signed form letter I received will be treasured always.)
For ease of presentation, the Republican Nominee/Nut Job will have his actual quotes in boldface; the late, unlamented Spiro T. will growl at us in italics.
I think I am, actually humble. I think I’m much more humble than you would understand.
I apologize for lying to you. I promise I won’t deceive you except in matters of this sort.
From a moral standpoint, I believe in it. But you also have to get elected. And there’s no way a Republican is going to beat a Democrat when the Republican is saying, ‘We’re going to cut your Social Security’ and the Democrat is saying, ‘We’re going to keep it and give you more.’
I have often been accused of putting my foot in my mouth, but I will never put my hands in your pockets.
We won with poorly educated. I love the poorly educated.
An intellectual is a man who doesn’t know how to park a bike.
You know, it really doesn’t matter what (the media) write as long as you’ve got a young and beautiful piece of ass.
Some newspapers are fit only to line the bottom of bird cages.
Appreciate the congrats for being right on radical Islamic terrorism, I don’t want congrats, I want toughness & vigilance. We must be smart!
Confronted with the choice, the American people would choose the policeman’s truncheon over the anarchist’s bomb.
I think the only card she has is the woman’s card. She has got nothing else going. Frankly, if Hillary Clinton were a man, I don’t think she would get 5% of the vote. And the beautiful thing is women don’t like her, OK?
Three things have been difficult to tame: the oceans, fools and women. We may soon be able to tame the oceans; fools and women will take a little longer.
An aside: Reading a NYT article dated October 10, 1973 (the day Spiro T. resigned) there was a paragraph titled “Speculation About Successor.” It listed a group of men Richard Nixon might nominate as Agnew’s replacement. Two names listed? Attorney General Elliott Richardson & Deputy Attorney General William D. Ruckelshaus. The Saturday Night Massacre occurred October 20th.
Can’t make this stuff up.
