Hunter S. Thompson

Engrave this Quote The tragedy of all this is that George McGovern, for all his mistakes and his imprecise talk about new politics and honesty in government, is one of the few men who've run for President of the United States in this century who really understands what a fantastic monument to all the best instincts of the human race this country might have been, if we could have kept it out of the hands of greedy little hustlers like Richard Nixon.
McGovern made some stupid mistakes, but in context they seem almost frivolous compared to the things Richard Nixon does every day of his life, on purpose, as a matter of policy and a perfect expression of everything he stands for.
Jesus! Where will it end? How low do you have to stoop in this country to be President?
-Hunter S. Thompson, from Fear and Loathing: On the Campaign Trail, reprinted in The Great Shark Hunt Tell a Friend
