Tricky Dick lives again...

Can I just say that I love the Nixonian technique of throwing something into discourse by saying "I'm not saying that..." and then fininshing the sentence that you're supposedly not saying. "I'm not going to say that Bush is an illiterate ignoramous, but..."

DAB, that was absolutely classic. Now what would presentence report attorneys say 'bout that?

Topped only by the Michelle Malkin-esque "Some have said..." so as to raise a shady point, without really being the one to say it, hiding behind the skirts of the ubiquotous "Some."

Law professors have an endless bag of tricks, though I never realized the Nixonian pedigree. Good to know.
