    (Everything you're about to read is real life.)

    Imagine the Joker. Got it? Okay, you're good to continue.

    I just discovered the existance of the most amazing man in history, Dick Tuck. He was a real-life supervillain who schemed to destroy Nixon (including infiltrating Nixon's campaign staff) and succeeded to such a degree that President Nixon tried to create his own super-villain to battle back.

    More details here...

    I remember one of my history profs telling us about this back in undergrad. It was pretty hilarious then, and still is now - the guy is one of the original trolls.

    Gotta love the persistence of the man. Trolling that advanced takes skills.

    The dude schemed to topple presidents, operated solo and with tactics like deep infiltration. This is literally what villains do in Batman comics.

    I wish Al Quaida operated like this guy instead of with cowardly bombs and shit.

    I don't see a lot of political strategists going in there donning fake identities and disguises. Dude's basically the Riddler without the Riddles.
