The song lyrics maybe could ave been "Tin Soldiers and Nixon's Bowling"
At any rate, Richard Nixon was an avid bowler. When he was elected he had the indoor pool removed and had indoor lanes installed. Or so the legend says.
The photograph you see was made popular in the movie The Big Lebowski as this very image hung over the Dude's home bar. We here at Teegenisues, all lovers of bowling, white Russians, The Big Lebowski and the notion that maybe if we all just bowled together we might come together as a country.
