Dick Semper Tyrannis

Amazing, absolutely amazing.

In the wake of Mark Felt's unveiling as Deep Throat, the die-hard Nixonites are coming out of the woodwork, condemning him for what he did to poor Mr. Nixon.

People like Pat Buchanan (who called Felt a traitor) and Gordon Liddy have joined the fray, as did former Nixon speechwriter Ben Stein (quoted approvingly by Rush Limbrain), who writes that the fall of Nixon led to the fall of Viet Nam and Cambodia (actually Nixon and Kissinger pretty much threw Saigon to the wolves; the uprising in Cambodia was provoked by the war-bred instability in 'Nam).

The courtiers circle the wagons in defense of the deposed tyrant. Me, I say sic semper tyrannis.
