Political Rants by Judy @ 2:38 PM

It’s odd to think that nearly 1/2 of the people now living in the USA had not been born yet when the office of the headquarters of the Democratic National Committee in the Watergate complex was burglarized. Makes me feel old.

Last night #1 Son asked me about Watergate. I was a freshman in college when the scandal broke, which also makes me feel old.

What I chiefly remember is how riveted the entire country was by what was happening. I sat for hours watching testimony during the Senate investigation, and wondering how the heck our country fell into the hands of such disreputable people. And wondering, of course, who Deep Throat was. Well… that mystery has at least been solved, since Mark Felt has admitted his involvement.

My mother and I had a duck dinner bet on whether Nixon would be impeached or not — I said yes, mama said no. The SOB resigned, thus ending our bet in a draw.

Nearly 1/2 of the people living in the USA had not yet been born when the Watergate scandal broke. Maybe that’s why our country is where it is today. Can’t we remember our history and stop repeating it?
