    I didn’t realize — I think I’ve always had a good idea about my native land, but I didn’t think that institutionally we were so easy to overthrow, because it was a coup d’etat, 9/11. The whole went crashing. And when we got rid of — when they got rid of Magna Carta, I thought, well, really, this wasn’t much of a republic to begin with.

    That's probably why he lived as long as he did. Ornery cocksuckers like him always outlive the norm. Hence why I'm expecting to see the age of 115.

    About a year ago, Bill Maher did an interview with him... full show. Vidal was sharper, wittier and more brilliantly observant than mortals a third his age.
    He made Maher look like a intellectual piss-ant.

    He and Paul Moore were 10x the patriots that those pipsqueak Bush Nazi-traders and draft dodgers even thought of being.

    Sasha Baron Cohen did and interview with Gore Vidal as his Ali G character and he kept referring to him as Vidal Sassoon. It was pretty funny.

    Sounds like he wasted his intellect and didn't know how to seperate fact from fiction (which makes sense as he wrote both).

    I believe Mailer noted the same attributes per Vidal.
