    Notice the wall going up. It’ll be stone soon.

    Yes, indeed—the US has just announced they’ve ‘lost’ the critical letter from Tony Blair promising to support Bush’s war ‘whatever’. Huge delays in producing any of the pre-war correspondence. ‘Deny, deny, deny,’ has morphed into ‘Delay, delay, delay.’ But the stonewall is the same.

    It’s OBVIOUS you didn’t live through those times.

    Is this strip about Obama?

    If you go through all the strips that GT has done since the current occupant took office you’ll notice that surprisingly few are about him, despite the juicy cock-ups that have occurred under his watch that would have made great fodder for the strip. GT didn’t even get as far as creating an avatar for him.

    If Nixon had gone to prison like he should’ve, maybe we wouldn’t have had Iran-Contra, and the giant mess of unconstitutional actions and warmongering that was the GWB administration, and the current policy of assassination by drones.

    I was astonished that when Nixon passed that they neglected to drive a wooden [white oak] stake through his heart! It would have stopped many things today from reoccurring.

    That’s true. He was the proverbial bad penny that never stopped showing up. I was always surprised he didn’t run for one more term, but did see t-shirts that said “Nixon – Tanned Rested and Ready”.

    Richard Nixon worked tirelessly to protect the one thing that was most important to him: Richard Nixon.
