quote [ I remember when I was a kid how my maternal grandmother would defend Richard Nixon for the crimes of Watergate. As she put it, “He didn’t do anything that every other president didn’t also do.”
It’s an easily manifested suspicion I suppose — not altogether incorrect — given the commonality of misconduct in high places. And surely it’s the kind of thing we’ll be hearing a lot more of in years to come, after the presidency of the human cynicism factory known as Donald Trump comes to an end. ]
Even growing up in the North I know much of my own history lessons were whitewashed of the anti-authoritarian heroes that helped shaped our country into this tenuous mishmosh of equality.
