Today’s Quote: Heil to the Funken Fuhrer!
They say you are what you eat — maybe Gordy has had one too many rats…
“On his radio show, [G. Gordon] Liddy is referred to in German as Herr Funken F&#-406434772; ‘Dear Radio Leader.’ That’s interesting given that Liddy has praised the original F&#-406434772; saying Hitler ‘made me feel a strength inside I had never known before… Hitler’s sheer animal confidence and power of will [entranced me]. He sent an electric current through my body.’ I guess like many of Liddy’s rants, his nickname on his radio show probably makes more sense in the original German.”
