Saturday Sunday morning afternoon tunes: Well, yeah, Watergate did bother us, and forty-years later, my conscience is doing just fine

Yesterday went seriously awry, so we're just now getting around to the weekend tune.

Forty years ago yesterday, one lie fed seamlessly into another: Richard Nixon, who told he was not a crook (but he was) resigned from office to escape impeachment and was replaced by Gerald Ford, who told us our long national nightmare was over (but it wasn't).

You can take your pick of I-Hate-Nixon songs from back in the day. Me, I think we don't get enough Zappa around here.
