Richard Nixon

When Richard Nixon lost the race for governor of California in 1962 (having previously lost the presidency to some rich guy with a funny accent), hetold the press, “You don’t have Nixon to kick around anymore.”

As on so many other occasions, Nixon was wrong. Thanks to YouTube, it is still very much possible to laugh at Tricky Dick. On that note, enjoy this ad from his 1962 campaign, featuring a frankly alarming number of exclamation marks.
