Google "Barack Obama Nixonian" or just click this link. You'll see several e-pundits love making the Chosen One out to be Orange County favorite disgraced son Richard M. Nixon. Actually, former Nixon Library director John Taylor made that case--in a positive way--days before Obama was inaugurated.

Dust off your old copy of The Boys on the Bus, Timothy Crouse's 1973 account of the previous year's presidential campaign that won Nixon reelection. Turn to page 209, and discover how a reporter knew when Dick was scooting off to the so-called "Western White House" in San Clemente.

Where are those ladies' medals? After all, they served our country by servicing the Service.
