Nixon would love this Tea Party caper

In the ‘70s some people thought I hated President Richard Nixon for his politics. Maybe that was partly true, but mostly I hated Nixon for his dirty tricks and profound dishonesty.

This Tea Party debt ceiling caper we are witnessing in plain sight reminds me of Nixon. He would love it.

The drama of the Tea Party's debt ceiling caper has gotten me more aroused by and discouraged with politics than anything has in a long time. In the future we'll see what impression kids and young adults will carry away from it. My sense of it is the Republicans are doing themselves no favors, in the long run.
