Full Metal Pinochet

Driftglass says it like it is:

These are the fuckers who learned at the feet of Nixon. And who believe that the mistakes Nixon made had nothing whatsoever to do with him trying to do a sweep-and-clear of the Constitution with a flamethrower.

According to their Milhousology, the only errors Tricky Dick ever made were tactical. That in the end he didn’t have the nerve to do what needed to be done: burn the tapes, chuck a few dozen journalists and liberals into federal graybar – maybe have one or two executed for ginned war crimes to tune up the rest -- and roll a few tanks in the streets if necessary.

That he pussed out when he should have gone Full Metal Pinochet.
