  • Milhous Nixon’s Vice-President Spiro Agnew was his attack dog. He ended up resigning not because of any involvement in Watergate- but from issues back in Maryland when he was their governor. Agnew didn’t come across well in the media- and I remember what happened 50 years ago today well- at the Bob Hope Desert Classic- professional golfer Doug Sanders was struck on the head with a golf ball by a golf ball hit by Agnew.  Sanders was unfortunate enough to be grouped with Agnew- along with Bob Hope and U.S. Senator George Murphy. Sanders was sent to the hospital for treatment after being hit.  A year later Spiro hit three spectators while golfing.

  1. Is that Jerry Reed to the far left in that pic??? All I know about Agnew is what I’m reading here. All I can say about Agnew is that I feel sorry for his wife 😦
