observation of American Politics

From Bill Moyers, “Listening to America”, 1970

“I like Agnew because he stands up to the Communists.  I disagree with him about Vietnam because I think the best advice there came from the Smothers Brothers.  They said just announce we’ve won and pull out.  That’s what I would do.  But I still like Agnew.  I like him better than I do the President.  Agnew speaks his mind and Nixon hides his.”

Anyone politician out for “announcing we won and pulling out” would get labeled with a clever alliteration spoken by Spiro Agnew and written by  William Safire or Pat Buchanan about being a Communist and not receive this man’s vote.
