Here's a news flash for you: Spiro Agnew was Nixon's VP!

And his whole quote was "nattering nabobs of negativism..." Which is just a long-winded way of saying Kookberger!

Thanks for flashing but I didn't think it was necessary to point out the obvious.

Incidentally, the phrase was actually written by William Safire, who was a Nixon/Agnew speechwriter at the time.
