Lace curtain Nixon

“Of course I preferred JFK to Nixon, but I was not bowled over,” said Harrison Salisbury, who had headed The New York Times‘s Moscow bureau. “I am afraid I took to calling Jack ‘a lace curtain Nixon.’ It was not unfair. Under the skin the politics of the two men did not differ much.”

—Larry Tye, Bobby Kennedy, (New York: Random House, 2017), 120-121.
