Farewell to a Good Man

Former President Gerald Ford has passed away. He was a good man who acted as a truly dignified presence in the office of the President of the United States of America. Regardless of opinions about his politics, the way that he ascended to the office, or his short tenure, he will be remembered as a man for his time.

Between the ordeal in Vietnam and the devastation of the Nixon presidency, America needed someone who could return honor to the office. Ford was a devoted friend of the nation--a man who could be trusted.

So farewell to one of the good men of politics. His may not have been a remarkable presidency--from the controversy about the pardon of Nixon to the difficulty of the economy, he was not universally admired for his political leadership--but he was an honest, ethical, forthright face of the goodness of America.

I find it interesting that everyone thinks of him as a clumsy goof when he was possibly the most athletically gifted President we’ve had. I guess if Chevy Chase falls into the Christmas tree it must be true.

It’s just because Chevy Chase is the Official Keeper of the National Lore. Which, given his mid-career slump, was a bit surprising appointment.
