A Couple of Links with a Watergate Theme 

Johann Hari interviews G. Gordon Liddy and the man comes off sounding like a lunatic, which, I guess, shouldn't really be a shock, but I was a little bit surprised by the extent to which Liddy appears to be insane. This is after all a man who is a successful radio personality, but I guess that's the world we live in now.

In the interview Liddy crazily explains that Watergate was actually a nefarious plot hatched by John Dean for personal reasons that had nothing to do with Nixon or bugging the offices of the DNC; John Dean is apparently covering up his career as a criminal mastermind by writing reasonable essays from a moderate anti-Bush stance. In his latest, Dean discusses the issue of Bush's new found "political capital" and concludes that "Bush has yet to pay the piper for his Iraqi war, but sooner or later that debt must be paid."
