Richard Nixon: Funniest Man That Ever Lived

A great catch by Eugene Volokh of one of the Nixon tapes. Our 37th President may have been the funniest man that ever lived.

From the Nixon Tapes, as quoted by Kevin J. McMahon, Nixon’s Court (2011):
Nixon: Incidentally, what is Rehnquist? I suppose he’s a damn Protestant?
Attorney General John Mitchell: I’m sure of that. He’s just as WASPish as WASPish can be.
Nixon: Yeah, well, that’s too damn bad. Tell him to change his religion.
Mitchell: All right, I’ll get him baptized this afternoon.
Nixon: Well, get him baptized and castrated, no, they don’t do that, I mean they circumcise — no, that’s the Jews. Well anyway, whatever he is, get him changed.

"Don’t ever call me again."

Casino mogul Steve Wynn dropped a bomb-shell on Neil Cavuto's show on Fox News yesterday. Big hat tip to Gateway Pundit.


More Harry Reid Awesomeness

Nevada's shame.
"It's very clear that private-sector jobs have been doing just fine; it's the public-sector jobs where we've lost huge numbers, and that's what this legislation is all about," Reid said on the Senate floor.

To the other 49 states, I apologize. We stink.

By the way...


If You Were A Neutrino You'd Be Home By Now

There's big stuff going on at CERN. Not only did they blow a huge hole into the myth of man-made global warming, they may have broken the speed of light. What's it all mean? Charles Krauthammer boils it down in an excellent column.
