To recap the last few Republican Presidents:
Nixon, Ford: Watergate. Produced G. Gordon Liddy.
Reagan, Bush Sr: Iran-Contra. Produced Oliver North.
Bush Jr: Saddamscam.
It starts to seem like whenever a Republican President subverts democracy (am I being redundant?) there are a lot of conservatives out there who like it so much that one of the henchmen becomes a hero, and gets a radio deal out of it.
So which Saddamscam figure will become the next hot talk radio host?
My bet is on Rumsfeld. He’s got the right tone of voice, loves to pontificate, and is full of pseudo-philosophical observations about politics. Can’t you just imagine him sneering at his liberal guests?
