Creepy Nixon-Era Buttons Unearthed in Mother's Basement

My folks are kind enough to let me smoke in the basement, so rummaging through their stuff, I found these Nixon campaign buttons. My mother wasn't old enough to vote in '72, but she may have had some Alex P. Keatoneque fascination with the guy in high school. I have no idea what to make of the "Senior Power" button...some questions are best left unasked.

Want a George Wallace button to go with the Nixon one? LOL!

Alex P. Keaton was my hero growing up. I took a briefcase to school in 5th grade because of him.

I don't know why they let you smoke in the basement -- that's kinda sad in a way -- I just imagine your Mom saying, Oh, no, that's just my son down there, rummaging around, he smokes, you know.

Dear God in heaven will you get a girlfriend!! Did you forget to ask Santa for one for Christmas?

I bet that Nixon one is a collectors item

This is what I tend to associate with adult males who spend a lot of time in their parents' basement. Luckily you were just visiting the basement and not living there :)
