One nice thought about Gerald R. Ford

My dad stopped voting Republican for the first time in his life in 1976. He refused to cast a vote for “that bastard who pardoned Nixon” and voted Libertarian instead. Dad voted LP again in 1980 — for Ed Clark — then gave up voting for good in his remaining 22 years.

I never held any fondness for the 38th president, but I do credit him for turning my dear father against the political machine.
