The real WTF is the link at the bottom of the article which goes to an article praising Richard Nixon.
Nixon's ambition was fired by his humble origins and his deep resentment of the privileged and snubs by the "Establishment." My admiration then for RN is due to his grit, his durability, his physical and political discipline, his resilience and his indestructibility. "You are only defeated when you quit," he would say. Richard Nixon never quit.
Richard Nixon never quit? That's what the asshole is most famous for doing. He's the only president ever to quit in shame. Even Bush didn't quite, and he was clinically retarded.
