Nixon’s Sense of Humour – “Fear and Loathing on the Campaign Trail ’72”, Hunter S Thompson

July 30th, 2011 · No Comments · Conservative Politics, Extremism, Politics, Quotes, US Politics

Nixon was “a monument to all the rancid genes and broken chromosomes that corrupt the possibilities of the American Dream; he was a foul caricature of himself, a man with no soul, no inner convictions, with the integrity of a hyena and the style of a poison toad.

The Nixon I remembered was absolutely humorless; I couldn’t imagine him laughing at anything except maybe a paraplegic who wanted to vote Democratic but couldn’t quite reach the lever on the voting machine.”
