I'm old enough to remember Watergate very well. I wasn't involved in politics and didn't have a dog in the fight at the time. One impression I did take away from it, and it hasn't changed ... John Dean is a disloyal, disingenuous, self aggrandizing, lying piece of crap.
Thank you for this very apt description of John Dean. Knew it in '74 and it still applies.
"...disloyal, disingenuous, self aggrandizing, lying piece of crap."
You left out CYA. Other than that spot-on.
Also, somebody beat me to "Your 15 minutes are over so STFU and go home whiner."
