Wednesday marks the 43rd anniversary of the resignation of Richard Nixon – a singular political milestone now devoutly to be wished. Eerie parallels abound: the charges of obstruction of justice, the lies, the reality, as Nixon conceded, that to “fight (for) my personal vindication” would absorb a nation with far better things to do. Revisiting the moment, most shocking is what seems like Nixon’s gravitas. WTF: Putting those two words together shows just how low we’ve sunk.
