Not a Good Golfer, either

He said he was not a crook. But careful research for this week's special Tribute to Presidential Golfers and Knitters prooves that Richard Nixon was a mediocre duffer as well.

Nixon resigned 32 years ago on August 8th, and he only gave one day of notice because his last day was August 9th. In my agency he wouldn't get paid for his accrued but unused vacation time upon termination because that's just not enough notice according to our HR policy. Although sometimes you are glad to see someone go, particularly when that person wasn't good at his job. Or wasn't a good golfer.

Plus, he was jealous of other golfers. On the Nixon Enemies List you'll find several people with better handicaps than Nixon: Bill Cosby (a 10); Paul Newman (a 7!). In his best years, Nixon maybe had a handicap of 12, but as this video shows, his swing is not good. Can you diagnose the problem here?

Since you probably have to be at work anyway today, and can't get out to play golf, I suggest you spend as much time as you can looking at this super Nixon site and remember: “People have got to know whether or not their President is a crook. Well, I'm not a crook. I've earned everything I've got”
