Richard Nixon Was Not Having a Gay Affair With Bebe Rebozo

Nevertheless, this article from the Daily Mail is worth a read, if for no other reason than for this paragraph:
A new biography by Don Fulsom, a veteran Washington reporter who covered the Nixon years, suggests the 37th U.S. President had a serious drink problem, beat his wife and — by the time he was inaugurated in 1969 — had links going back two decades to the Mafia, including with New Orleans godfather Carlos Marcello, then America's most powerful mobster. Yet the most extraordinary claim is that the homophobic Nixon may have been gay himself. If true, it would provide a fascinating insight into the motivation and behaviour of a notoriously secretive politician.
Indeed! I'm writing a new book right now that alleges that George W. Bush was a secret Soviet sleeper agent activated by Vladimir Putin. If true, it would provide a fascinating insight into the motivation and behavior of a notoriously blundering politician.

Similarly, a friend of mine is finishing an article that alleges that Calvin Coolidge was actually carved from an oak tree. If true, it would provide a fascinating insight into the motivation and behavior of a notoriously silent politician.

And let's not forget the conspiracy theory that William Henry Harrison never died of pneumonia but is, instead, still the living president of the United States. If true, it would provide a fascinating insight into the motivation and behavior of a notoriously deceased politician.
