In the same manner a lot of people want to hear a sermon a Sunday, I like to hear Gore Vidal’s reaction when something has happened in the USA. It’s such a satisfying ritual. I already know more or less what he’s going to say. But, he still manages to always surprise me with his complaints.

Vidal reacting to George Bush’s inaugural address was another nice sermon indeed.

We were too busy with homosexual marriage and abortion, two really riveting subjects. War and peace, of course, are not worth talking about. And civilization, God forbid that we ever commit ourselves to that.

[try and listen to the segment or the MP3 of the show. His sighs add something extra to the text]
