The Werewolf of Washington (1973) succeeds as a Watergate satire with its silly but dry dream-like premise. It's about a werewolf in Washington during 1973. Wolfie in question is the Press Secretary, and, yes, he bites the President. As Carl points out on the podcast, actor Biff McGuire plays the President as Nixon but without the signature cadence. He's wonderful in a scene that takes place in the underground White House two-lane bowling alley. Film was later repurposed into the art house film, President Wolfman (2012).
