Nixon shoplifted a Snickers bar

TV comedy perpetrator Ken Levine comments on the movie FROST/NIXON:

I had only one problem with this movie. If it had been released ten years ago it would have had a thousand times the impact it does today. What seemed so shocking, so unthinkable back then–a United States president lying to the American people and covering up a botched break-in–is nothing in comparison to what Bush, Cheney, Rove, & Co. have done. Nixon shoplifted a Snickers bar compared to these Visigoths. And at least Nixon was tortured by his actions for the rest of his life. When George Bush has his comparable interview in a few years with Tyra Banks I’m sure there will be no such remorse. He may have destroyed the country and the world but at least he spared Vegas.

Poor Dubya seems doomed to be misunderstood by history.

Tyra Banks is maybe not the best choice to conduct that interview with the weight and gravity it deserves.  How about Jimmy Fallon?
