RIP George McGovern

George McGovern, liberal standard-bearer against Nixon in '72, dies.


This was the first political campaign I remember knowing about and I know it broke my parent's hearts to see Nixon re-elected.

I can remember my parents supporting him. My father was a newspaper editor-- and they were very political beings.

I remember the footage of the war on tv too. Long ago now. Strange to think that Nixon would be moderate or even liberal now, compared to the 'right.'

(After all, Nixon started the EPA.) And the crime that Nixon got rightously spanked for-- which seemed so shocking then-- is greeted now with nothing but an eyebrow twitch.
