In a way I shouldn’t give one wit what an asshatted writer like Gore Vidal thinks or writes about, he’s long been a thorn in the side of common sense and reason, but, sometimes you just gotta laugh at some of the shit this guy brings to the table.
It will take the the United States a century to recover from the damage wreaked by President George W Bush, US writer Gore Vidal said in an interview published today.
“The president behaved like a virtual criminal but we didn’t have the courage to sack him for fear of violating the American constitution,” Mr Vidal told the El Mundo newspaper.
The author, a trenchant critic of the US-led invasion of Iraq, said it would take the United States 100 years to repair the damage caused by Bush.
“We live in a dictatorship. We have a fascist government …which controls the media,” he said.
Got that? This nitwit makes the claim Bush hasn’t been impeached because to OH SOOOO far left loons in Congress didn’t want to violate the Constitution to do so.
So obviously he would support what amounts to a “fascist government” as long as it impeached the president. Fuck the Constitution in that case!
Would you be surprised to learn Gore thinks The ObamaMessiah is the smartest thing to come on the scene since, well, I don’t know when since. He just is, at least according to this asshat.
Not only that he thinks Sen. McCain’s Vietnam war history is a figment of the Senators imagination:
Asked what he thinks of McCain, Vidal calls him a “disaster,” then tells Deborah Solomon, “Who started this rumor that he was a war hero? Where does that come from, aside from himself? About his suffering in the prison war camp?”
Solomon replies: “Everyone knows he was a prisoner of war in North Vietnam.” To which Vidal responds: “That’s what he tells us.”
Does this guy, at the age of 82 still have a working brain cell?Related articles
