Gerald Ford was president when I was born, so I can’t exactly draft a post waxing about my memories of his presidency. But I do have a key observation. For all everyone has ever goofed on Ford, for all the klutz and golf-ball jokes, for every time he was panned as a boring or overly nice guy, check this out: He has upstaged James Brown.
Check out the news coverage!! AND he wouldn’t have his lawyers padlock Betty out of the house. AND Ford survived two assassination attempts — who’s the badder (and nicer) guy? All props go to the Godfather of the Oval Office, the longest-living president!
