Chevy, please

I honestly wish nobody ill, but watching the canonization of yet another competence and integrity-challenged dead Republican is turning my stomach. Even a number of liberal bloggers are parroting the conventional wisdom that Gerald Ford was a good and decent man.

Sorry, but count me out. It's not a grudge that I have, it's a good memory.

Gerald Ford gave a full pardon for every misdeed perpetrated in office by Richard Nixon, the only president who could give George W. Bush a run for the first-place trophy for malicious disregard of the Constitution. He pardoned and thus rehabilitated the careers of many of the Nixon cronies who are now (mis)guiding the current path of the United States, including Dick Cheney, Donald Rumsfeld, Elliot Abrams, Henry Kissinger and more, scoundrels and war criminals who should all be getting forcibly sodomized daily behind bars rather than living in Georgetown mansions. He did all this with full knowledge of the deliberate and intentional crimes against our nation that these people planned and orchestrated.

"Our long national nightmare is over," indeed.

Gerald Ford was the fulcrum upon which our present long national nightmare was levered into power. Mourned with the simple courtesy due a dead president, yes.

Mourned as a great American? Not by me.

If the weed lives long enough they'll probably forget all the damage he did and mourn him, too. Short memories, short attention spans, short sightedness....
