More on Nixon and Vietnam
Posted by Raznor

For those who read the context of the Peggy Noonan column I discussed in this post will note that Noonan was agreeing to a Ben Stein quotation.

Here's the thing. Ben Stein is saying that Nixon would have won Vietnam. This is contradicted by the fact that Nixon announced the withdrawal from Vietnam in November, 1969. He did so in a speech. A speech likely written by his speechwriter, that being Ben Stein, so Ben Stein knew about this speech. So when Stein says something like that, he's either being a complete lying asshole, or he's completely senile and can no longer remember what happened 30 years ago. Either way, I don't know why we have to listen to him.
