    Thanks, Jerry!

    Jerry Ford had a thankless and impossible task -- picking up the pieces of the presidency following Watergate and Nixon's resignation. Ford's pardon of Nixon probably sealed his loss of the 1976 election to Jimmy Carter. But in the short time Ford was in office, his longest reaching legacy may have been bringing in a few new guys into his administration, specifically, these two pictured below:

    And he let Nixon get away with it, sowing the seeds for Cheney and Shrub to get away with it. So he got hit in the head with golf clubs and was affable. Hoo-ray.
