But, even posthumously, the former president continues to kick himself.

From the new Nixon tapes, just released, per the New York Times, recorded on January 23, 1973:

Nixon worried that greater access to abortions would foster “permissiveness,” and said that “it breaks the family.” But he also saw a need for abortion in some cases — like interracial pregnancies, he said. “There are times when an abortion is necessary. I know that. When you have a black and a white,” he told an aide, before adding, “Or a rape.”

Listen to the tape here.

UPDATE: And yet, Swampland kicks and kicks again. Karen posted here on this same jewel yesterday.
