FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
In 1962, the Great Man himself called it quits in an embittered speech after a failed California gubernatorial bid. And for four years, he disappeared. Much of the world considered him a has-been, a washed-up politician who would be best remembered for his failings in 1960 and 1962.
But Nixon's legacy was not yet etched in marble. Rather, he blitzed Hubert Humphrey in the 1968 presidential campaign and went on to even more spectacular personal and political failures.
Team Resignation has chosen to withdraw from the 2012 season of crapcan racing, leaving behind a brief legacy of failure.
And also like Nixon, Team Resignation plans to re-emerge in the near future, bound for greater and more spectacular failures. While we don't want to tip our hand, we will let you know that TR is examining in-depth a (much more benign) Southern Strategy.
So long for now. And as we leave you, Team Resignation just want you to know: You will have Nixon to kick around again.
