a different cloth

I saw a brief news report of former President Gerald Ford's impending funeral in Washington (later this morning). Indeed, so many reports give him the highest honor: that of being a truly decent man. Granted, a lot of people would've been happy had Richard Nixon been tried, convicted and imprisoned for what he orchestrated .. and were shocked-beyond-belief when Ford pardoned Nixon .. but it brought a rapid end to the whole Watergate affair and let us get on with our lives.

The snippet that disgusted me was watching President Quagmire paying his respects for the cameras. Being the self-centered lout that he is, he was probably thinking "gee, I hope lots of people turn out when I'm laying here!".

Don't count on it, George. You and Gerald Ford are not cut from the same cloth. Not even.
