Since the outing of Deep Throat, the Watergate felons have been all over the media bitching and calling Mark Felt a traitor. A bitch has a particular fondness for Watergate and its many felons, so I’ve been as happy as a bitch in drama can be! But the conservative response caught my attention and pissed in my drama loving Cornflakes.
Occupation – Conservative Talking Head and Conservative Reactionary
Watergate Connection - Nixon speechwriter or something like that.
General Disposition - Complete Ass
Shameless Attempt at Relevance – Ran for President
Time lapse between Deep Throat Revelation and Knee Jerk Reaction – The 12 hours it took for his offensive ass to pop up on the Today Show.
A bitch first came to know Buchanan when he ran for President in the early 80’s. He liked to say that Blacks and Hispanics should go back to where they came from. A bitch was always amused by these statements because…I mean, with a last name like Buchanan…well, fuck…you know his ass shouldn’t be talking!
Anyhoo, Paddy (we’re close like that) was fired up about Felt. I’m talking vein in the forehead and spittle at the corners of his mouth fired up!
“He’s a traitor!”
“He has no loyalty!”
Blah, blah, blah. When Lauer was interviewing him, his voice took on the high-pitched childlike quality of a young tree gnome! Fantabulous!
But, seriously. Paddy! Get some perspective! A bitch doesn’t even think you did time…for Watergate, at least.
ABB’s Breakdown of this Felt Shit
Felt was the #2 Dude at the FBI and was made aware of the criminal, very criminal, criminal any fucking way you look at it, actions of the Nixon White House.
Felt did not think he could address these actions through government channels, because the government was knee deep in the corruption.
(Note - Watergate history does hold that even the Attorney General…well, the first of the many Nixon Attorney Generals…was aware of illegal activities and did nothing. So, why call the cops if the cops are on the take?)
Felt, understanding that the corruption knew no limits, took the “media exposure” route and the rest is history.
Is this criminal? No. He exposed a criminal enterprise, and that was his fucking duty. Honestly, criminals should be better than this at identifying what is criminal.
Does this make Felt "not loyal"? This bitch thinks he was loyal as a motherfucker! To risk it all in an attempt to save this fucked up government from itself? Yeah, that’s loyal. Paddy’s just pissed that Felt was loyal to the institution of the Presidency and not the asshole that was President at the time.
Listening to Buchanan, it sounds like conservatives serve a different master. It’s sad to think that Felt gave us a government exposed for its illegal activities only to live just long enough to see most Nixonian tactics made legal through all that Homeland Security bullshit.
But that, chil’ren, is another post…
