Once an asshole, always an asshole

As if the world needed any more evidence that Richard Nixon will always maintain his standing as the most narcissistic, sociopathic and morally bankrupt person ever to serve as president of the United States, new transcripts of the secret White House taping system made famous by Watergate give new meaning to the old phrase, "Once an asshole, always an asshole."

Commenting on the Court's decision in Roe v. Wade (1973), Nixon expressed some "concern" about a constitutional right to abortion, concerned that it might lead to "permissiveness." But what concerned him even more was this:
“There are times when an abortion is necessary. I know that. When you have a black and a white. Or a rape.”
