Hunter S Thompson’s Nixon Obit.


Hunter S Thompson’s scathing satirical yet so true obit of Nixon. HST at his best.

Clip from the obit in Atlantic Monthly, 1994.

These are harsh words for a man only recently canonized by President Clinton and my old friend George McGovern — but I have written worse things about Nixon, many times, and the record will show that I kicked him repeatedly long before he went down. I beat him like a mad dog with mange every time I got a chance, and I am proud of it. He was scum.

We could sure use Hunter Thompson right about now to take a blowtorch and a pair pliers to the President-elect.
