“Would you like to have some fun with me?”
“No,” I said. “I’m going up to my room where my wife is waiting for me.”

“I’m a fan of yours,” she said. “And I’m a huge, huge, huge fan of Nixon. I know you worked for him. I was there the night before his funeral at the viewing. I stood in line for six hours, until three in the morning, to see him. I loved him. He was such a great President.”

“God bless Richard Nixon,” she said.

Mr. and Mrs. American Spectator Reader, let P.J. O’Rourke talk sense to your kids.
In Britain, defending your property can get you life.
The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
