Does this guy look familiar?



I have a feeling we might be hearing a lot about this guy in the near future.

3. Yep! But he'd be 94, if he were to still be alive.

 

I kinda doubt we will be hearing from him, except maybe in the voting booth in November.

2. Spiro Agnew.

Richard Nixon's VP who resigned in disgrace before his boss Tricky Dick also resigned in disgrace. All of that great Republican legacy they can talk about at their upcoming convention.

4. RmOney's Veep pick? Mr. Nattering Nabobs of negativism is on the mend - just what Mittens needs -

a guy with enough political experience under his belt to commit multiple felonies and not get sent to jail.

A real Silent American, Spiro T. Asshole!

6. Vice President Spiro T. Agnew

I was a kid but remember him well. Something about him resigning from office due to a scandal...a Republican of course, doing what they do best.

15. During his fifth year as Vice President,

in the late summer of 1973, Agnew was under investigation by the United States Attorney's office in Baltimore, Maryland, on charges of extortion, tax fraud, bribery and conspiracy. In October, he was formally charged with having accepted bribes totaling more than $100,000 while holding office as Baltimore County Executive, Governor of Maryland, and Vice President of the United States. On October 10, 1973, Agnew was allowed to plead no contest to a single charge that he had failed to report $29,500 of income received in 1967, with the condition that he resign the office of Vice President. Nixon replaced him by appointing by then House Minority Leader Gerald R. Ford to the office of Vice President.

20. Dear Spiro,

I dug it.
It had a good beat.
It was easy to dance to.
I gave it about a 73.......




same as your IQ.
