Today is Richard Nixon's 100th birthday.
Richard Nixon did something nobody else did. He performed an act of Biblical significance. For all his faults, and they were many, this man--this anti-Semite!--singlehandedly saved Israel in October 1973, during the Yom Kippur War, by sending weaponry, when nobody, even Kissinger, wanted to risk it. He sings with the angels. He endured Watergate, I think, as a divine rebuke to keep him from getting too proud of his greatest achievement. May he rest in peace.
