Richard Nixon vs Hunter S Thompson

Discussion in 'Anything goes' started by Evil Bastard (aka Chris_L), May 14, 2010.

  1. Interesting quiz - you have to guess who the quote is from - Tricky Dick or Dr Gonzo?


    I got 8 out of 11 even though I only knew a few of the quote for sure.

    Haven't looked at the link yet, but:

    "Richard Nixon has never been one of my favorite people anyway. For years I've regarded his existence as a monument to all the rancid genes and broken chromosones that corrupt the possibilities of the American Dream; he was a foul caricature of himself, a man with no soul, no inner convictions, with the integrity of a hyena and the style of a poison toad. The Nixon I remembered was absolutely humorless; I couldn't imagine him laughing at anything except maybe a paraplegic who wanted to vote Democratic but couldn't quite reach the lever on the voting machine." -- Hunter S. Thomspon

    One of my favorite descriptions ever. It totally captured Nixon.

    FYI, thanks for the link. I like stuff like that. 8 out of 11. I was pretty much guessing.

    Gee, thanks for this.
    As if I don't waste enough time on SportsJournalists.com, Facebook and Sprocle, you just gave me something else to help me avoid actually working.
