Hunter S. Thompson

Again with Hunter S. Thompson: "I voted for Dick Gregory in 68, and for 'No' in 64..." Does it mean he voted neither of the candidates or what? And another one about Frank Mankiewicz: Thompson calls him "the wizard of Chevy Chase". Chase has done movies since 1968, but this still seems somehow incomprehensible combination. And thanks to Brian from Shawnee, "gila monster trip" would've gone unsolved without you. (I'm translating Thompsons "The Great Shark Hunt" into Finnish, and I'm sometimes completely lost with this political jargon from 60's & 70's. Maybe its got something to do with the fact that it all happened before I was even born and on the other side the globe...)
