Poor Gordon Liddy. The 78 year-old Watergate mastermind appears to be losing his mind. On Wednesday, while most of the country was busy heralding the safe return of American journalists Euna Lee and Laura Ling from North Korea--FOX News and other right-wing fearmongers being notable exceptions--Liddy announced on his radio show that "Ling-Ling and Wee-Wee...have been brought back by Bill Clinton to the United States."
Now, Ling-Ling was one of the two giant pandas (pictured with her mate Hsing-Hsing) given to the U.S. by China following President Nixon's historic visit there in 1972. You know, the same president that Liddy served under and served time for. It's only natural to assume, then, that Liddy is suffering from moderate dementia--symptoms of which include "forgetting names and faces" and "remembering events from the past as though they are the present"--and that's why he's confusing Laura Ling with Ling-Ling, a giant panda who died in 1992.
And we all know what a Wee-Wee is. (Lady Gaga even has one, evidently!) But why Liddy would conflate Euna Lee with a dick is beyond us. Perhaps he's been playing with his own wee-wee a bit too much lately?
Which would mean Liddy's brain is not only degenerating, it's moving rapidly from moderate to severe dementia, symptoms of which include..."uncontrollable movements."
Like we said, poor Gordon Liddy.
