Nixon Foundation Executive Director John H. Taylor has issued a stirring call to the faithful, those who might feel a little lost in world gone mad and Nixon Library gone federal.

And yes, Nixon still didn’t do it.

“So newly available documents and tapes weren’t enough for some scholars and reporters as the new Nixon Library prepared to open its doors. They required an act of public expiation and sanctification, namely the smiting of the beast of the old Nixon Library Watergate gallery, that last lonely place where the lingering possibility flickered of a malfunctioning Uher 5000.”

And then it gets weird:

“…the Nixon Library has finally been washed clean – the price President Nixon’s family and friends needed to pay before his Library could finally be admitted to the fraternity honoring all the paragons of high achievement and moral purity represented in the Presidential library system, which starts with Herbert Hoover and goes through Bill Clinton. ”

What’s he got against Hoover?
