Watergate anniversary

On this day in 1972, the Watergate burglars were arrested. Thanks to the good hard reporting work of Woodward and Bernstein at the Washington Post and others, this was eventually tied directly to the president (at least the coverup of it).

Two years later articles of impeachment were filed.

This was one of his speeches addressing the scandal while he was still the President, and still believed he could survive...

By the way, care to guess what the number one song in the country was on the day that the Watergate burglars were arrested.

Would you believe it was sung by Sammy Davis Jr.?

(Confession time: I loved that song. LOVED it. But then again, I was nine.)
