Swimming the Campaign Trail

Nixon's recent appearance reminded me of a 1973 ad for Hunter S. Thompson's Fear and Loathing on the Campaign Trail '72.

For kicks, substitute a harmless, modern American into the ad's lead quote:
It is Michael Phelps himself who represents that dark, venal and incurably violent side of the American character almost every other country has learned to fear and despise.
