Found this in the comments at the Daily Kos blog this morning:
<I remember during Watergate, my late Dad said,
” It is hard to tell your crooks without a program.” We laughed that we should have sold Watergate Programs with each player’s name, crimes, and sorted details.>
Assuming the writer meant sordid details, the meaning dovetails with the activity of sorting the crimes and crooks into a program, so the details were both sordid and sorted?
