The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. From Vanity Fair:

    Money quote:

    "He is in power only in order to be in power. He is in power only because he believes he has long had a natural right to be prime minister. For many years he waited as a resentful dauphin, swallowing his envy and bile. And then, like the fruit of the medlar tree, he went rotten before he was ripe."

    The Nixon analogy does not hold up very well. Nixon was a man of considerable achievements and accomplishments. The dirty tricks were a result of fighting dirty political opponents as well as the character flaws mentioned. Nixon di not need the dirty tricks. Brown (an idiot) has no achievements or accomplishments, there is nothing but a record of failure beyond spin the dirty tricks.
