The True Story of Richard Nixon's Election to The Presidency in 1968

The Comedy Writer That Helped Elect Richard M. Nixon 
- WFMU's Beware of the Blog: 
"'Nixon said ... that appearing on Laugh-In is what got him elected 
- and I believe that. 
And I've had to live with that.' 
- George Schlatter, Creator of Laugh-In"


Progressives Elected Richard Nixon 
with Help from Hubert Humphrey 

Progressives like me who demonstrated in Lincoln Park 
in August, 1968, elected Richard Nixon
 We hated LBJ so much and were so vocal 
that we made the middle of the country allergic to us Yippies

 Despite the best efforts of Gene McCarthy 
Hubert Horatio Humphrey got the Democratic Nomination 
three miles south of  Lincoln Park
You remember the Grant Park carnage

. We hated Hubert because he would not repudiate 
his boss and say no to the war
He lost by the margin we could have exceeded 
We voted for Dick Gregory 
or sat out the 1968 election 
We did nothing 
to prevent the election of Richard Nixon 

This is the true history of why Nixon got elected.

The back story is that a big pharma exec Elmer Bobst 
got Nixon a nice job in the Big Apple 
and Nixon was able to assemble 
his entire inner 1968 inner circle 
in his new law office
 beginning with bond expert John Mitchell.

How is it I know such things 
Let's just say, there is Zelig 
and there is Hyper Zelig.

I forgot to mention the other reason Nixon got elected 
It wasn't funny
 The keyword is Sirhan Sirhan 
I believe he may be still alive 
My political hopes died in August 1968
 in a confused hotel scene in California.
