Is Barry the 00’s Nixon?

From the Hardball Times:

Seriously, has anyone else noticed the parallels between Bonds’ media paranoia and Richard Nixon’s? Consider…

  • Nixon mentioned his children and their dog Checkers in a nationally televised speech in a bid for sympathy, Bonds did the same thing with his son.
  • Nixon’s VP called the media “nattering nabobs of negativism.” Bonds has called them something similar, though less alliterative.
  • Nixon had Watergate, Bonds has Steroidsgate.
  • Nixon was forced to retire early. Bonds???


We can only hope America looks back at Barry as fondly as we remember Tricky Dick.
