To all the bogeymen I've known before

When I was young, Tricky Dick was the biggest bogeyman I knew of. Not a HITLER or a STALEEN, just dirty and embarrassing, and I didnít imagine there could be worse. But then came Ronnie and Nancy who had a different edge on them, greedy and cruel. Somehow Poppy BUSH with his goofiness was almost convincing that he was out of the loop, while now we know he was just as dirty and cruel. And then came Shrub W., who just made us eat shit and laughed in our faces. And yet all of these a-holes had a shred of restraint and limits, like a fear of going too far that could pass for respect. And that shred made me believe there couldnít be somebody worse. And now we have The Great Fluke, this SHITLER thing who is *so* bad that he makes me nostalgic for some of those others. Tricky Dick had a sense of history and fear of what History would say about him, pride the way he would march-in-step when Hail to the Chief played and not burning the tapes for History's sake. RAYGUN knew he was No-FDR, just a trained actor. Poppy had the secret handshakes of the real power brokers to keep him. Shrub just needed to claim his birthright from Poppy and JEB. But SHITLER respects nothing. LBJ and Tricky Dick could take a hint and a clue and leave the building.

1. I am of the Tricky Dick era, and I HATED that guy!

...but I have never despised anyone with any more level of utter contempt and BOILING HATRED as I have for Fake President Asshole Motherfucker Trumpvirus.

At least Nixon set up the EPA and, if I'm not mistaken, established the "earned income tax credit" for lower income people.

4. Nixon also tried to give us healthcare. As bad as Nixon was, he had nothing on this asshole...

I remember being in the army when I got my absentee ballot. No one I knew of voted for Nixon.
