The Other Gore

I love this paragraph, taken from the LA Times review of Gore Vidal's latest book, Perpetual War For Perpetual Peace: How We Got to Be So Hated. Thanks to wood s lot for passing it along.

" The suffocating and self-indulgent consensus in which most of America has swaddled itself since Sept. 11, reinforced by cable-babble framed in patriotic bunting and unquestioned by "opposition" Democrats who purr like a collection of domestic pets on Dubya's Crawford, Texas, ranch, could use a bit of shouting down by the likes of Vidal. And if someone wants to shout back half as eloquently as Vidal, then please hop to it. That way we'd have at least the semblance of a grand national debate"

Wouldn't it be grand if Vidal were a blogger?
