Get Your Post Surrealism ON BiggerTime

We complain now about the High Broderism and the craven incompetence of the Washington Post. But is there anything to match Walter Lippman in October 1968?
I believe that there really is a "new Nixon," a maturer and mellower man who is no longer clawing is wayto the top, and it is, I think, fair to hope that his dominating ambition will be to become a two-term President.

I suspect not.
