don't get caught with your hands in the cookie jar..
13 February 2010 | by See all my reviews

This lengthy documentary lays the Nixon time-line out very well, although the items included and excluded will vary in importance depending on your political persuasion. While it's true that perhaps Nixon's actions were more ... "understandable", given his times and culture but sadly the "cured the cold but killed the patient" syndrome failed then, just as surely as it did with Clinton, Regan, Bush, Blair or any of the other "Bend the laws to protect the laws" advocates. At the end, the moral - as always - is, people will forgive you for stealing cookies if you're caught with your hand in the cookie jar, but they will NOT forgive you if you still try to convince them that you weren't stealing cookies, with your hand in the jar.
