Self-pity 101

This from “On the Media” this morning:

“I Am Not a Schnook

Two years into his presidency, Nixon fired off a memo to his chief of staff in which he grumbled about his bad public relations. James Reston, Jr., author of The Conviction of Richard Nixon, calls the just-released letter a “warm bath of Nixon paranoia.”

Great to hear the voice of Nixon wallowing in self-pity.  It’s a wonderful antidote!  Nixon blames everybody but himself, and never missed a chance to feel sorry for himself.  What a schnook!
