President Nixon: How many did we kill in Laos? …

National Security Adviser Henry Kissinger: In the Laotian thing, we killed about ten, fifteen [thousand].

Nixon: See, the attack in the North [Vietnam] that we have in mind … power plants, whatever’s left – POL [petroleum], the docks … And, I still think we ought to take the dikes out now. Will that drown people?

Kissinger: About two hundred thousand people.

Nixon: No, no, no, I’d rather use the nuclear bomb. Have you got that, Henry?

Kissinger: That, I think, would just be too much.

Nixon: The nuclear bomb, does that bother you? … I just want you to think big, Henry, for Christsakes.

I’ve never lived through a real impeachment where the president actually has to resign before he gets thrown into prison, so what’s the etiquette here? Do I throw a pre-impeachment party now or should I wait until afterwards, when everybody else is throwing a post-impeachment party? Am I supposed to be taking bets on the exact day Trump quits? Do I set up a lottery for how many other Republicans get taken down with Trump?

What’s the proper attire? Will people expect me to wear a tux or is it more casual? Should my party have a theme? Has “I am not a crook” been overused? Do I get a dj to play only 70s music?

I have sO many questions

Yeah yeah yeah, I know….don’t count your chickens before blah blah blah, but dammit I’m excited and I’m really tryna throw this damn party
