Once you get past the opening segment's nod to Liddy, this show was an easy listen. Having two good guests certainly helps

Jesus H. Christ, TK and "Nigel" are doing, "He was nice to me," about G. GORDON FUCKING LIDDY? Someone who was completely prepared to destroy democracy? WHAT?
And you know that if you asked TK his opinion of this pond-scum back in the day likely he would have spit on him.

He was an unrepentant evil man. The world would have been much better if none of us had ever heard of him.
from the washington post obit
"He also developed an early fascination with Nazi Germany, saying that he felt an "electric current" surge through his body when he listened to Adolf Hitler on the radio. To the young Liddy, Hitler embodied the "power of will." "

"He also volunteered to assassinate newspaper columnist Jack Anderson, who he thought was responsible for compromising a top U.S. intelligence source. His superiors vetoed the idea. "

"As a federal prisoner, Liddy relished facing down the wardens and gangs who ruled the penitentiary. In his autobiography, he claimed that he responded to racial epithets from African American prisoners by singing the Nazi "Horst Wessel" anthem that he had learned as a boy, celebrating Aryan superiority. "

What a huge loss. Too bad it didn’t happen much sooner.

In fairness, my listening to MK describe the contours of the course he played with his father and father-in-law was a personal homage to Liddy holding his hand over an open flame until his flesh burned.

G. Gordon "He always smiled and said hello to me" Liddy; Pol "Not nearly so bad once you got to know him" Pot; Uncle Joe "Always a great story teller" Stalin; Benedict "Fun guy to have a beer with" Arnold; Donald J "Wonderful fellow to golf with" Trump.

Man, were their recollections hideously out of touch:

"WHAT THE F ARE WE DOING OUT HERE ANYWAY???
