#PL060 - Sock it to 'em Spiro Pinback
#PL060 - Sock it to 'em Spiro Pinback
Vintage 1 3/4" diameter pinback that says "Sock it to 'em Spiro". Excellent unused condition. These are interesting. They were made in 1968 by AAA novelty in Washington D.C. and are a reference to a 1968 cameo appearances of Richard Nixon on the Laugh In show which aired just before the general election. Richard Nixon deadpanned, "Sock it to me?" on the show. Many credit that appearance on Laugh-In as pushing Nixon over the top to get elected to the presidency. His opponent Hubert H. Humphrey declined the invitation. Spiro, of course, refers to Spiro Agnew, who was running with Nixon as his Vice President.
