Virgil has channeled the thinking of Richard Nixon, as he watches the latest impeachment hearings.
Yes, I died in 1994, but I still keep up with the newsespecially, of course, news about impeachment.
In 1974, after I was railroaded out of the White House by partisan Democrats, hypocritical liberals, and self-righteous reporters, I made a vow: Never again let that sort of railroading happen to a Republican president. That is, I would share lessons learned about protecting the presidency, alwayswhether I was in this world, or the next.

These thoughts came to mind yet again on December 3, when I read a boo-hoo column in the Philadelphia Inquirer, by liberal journo Will Bunch. In his piece, Bunch complained that the Iran-Contra scandal of 198687, during Reagans second term, did not turn out the same way as Watergatethat is, the Republican president getting run out. And Bunchs further lament was that now, Ukraine-gate is shaping up to be less like Watergate and more like Iran-Contra. That is, the Republican president survives the attackand flourishes.

Richard Nixon’s lessons on beating impeachment? Is that something like Hitler’s lessons on successfully conquering Russia? Maybe for the first time in my life Bill Clinton might actually be able to give a better lesson than a Republican on an issue...
Richard Nixon lesson?
Take all the Oval Office tapes out on the Presidential Yacht and shovel them over the side into the Potomac River.
