The kid looks like a young Roger Stone. :yuck:
I wonder if he has any friends younger than 60?

More Nixon! The Boss and I have started watching Gaslit, a darkly humourous account that emphasizes the sinister lunatics and general batshittery around the story, with special attention to Martha Mitchell (her story is more horror story than black comedy). In particular, I think SM would eat this up, but most people here would enjoy it.
Did this start as a podcast?? I remember listening to a podcast that told the story through the eyes of MM (at least I think I remember something like that).
Yeah, I believe this was inspired by the Slow Burn (s1) podcast on weird aspects of Watergate. One of the episodes focused on Martha.

We've got one episode left and I can say it's worth watching if only for Liddy, who is played fairly but comically as completely insane. I mean, I recognized a lot of stuff that was depicted in Gaslit and it's jawdropping how easily it translates into dark comedy. I've never read his memoir, but I'm thinking I might have to.

It's fascinating stuff. I reread The Final Days every now and then. I'm going to check out Gaslit for sure.

Watch it with your missuz so you can turn to her every so often and say, "That scene is entirely true."
