A Plumber’s Guarantee

With all the talk of Nixon and the “Saturday Night Massacre” lately, I decided to watch the BBC’s 5-part documentary on Watergate from 1994 (available in its entirety on youtube here). First, It’s a very good, and features interviews with all the major players from the scandal. Second, some of the stuff is patently absurd (and a bit hilarious), particularly those bits with the White House “plumbers.” Above, I’ve clipped a story about an incident of miscommunication and Gordon Liddy who thought he was tasked to “take care of” journalist Jack Anderson…the stuff of a farce.
