One of the things I like to do to keep up with government is to send the incoming vice president a Snickers the day after Inauguration Day. If the president finishes his term, then I'm out the price of a Snickers. If, gods forbid, he doesn't, then I can send the new president a single request, written on the back of a receipt for a Snickers.
That's why Ford pulled out of Vietnam.
Wait a second, Ford wasn't around for Inauguration Day 1973.
It was Spiro Agnew.
Spiro Agnew stole my motherfucking Snickers!
