    [SUP]In response to the Roman Polanski sexual abuse case, Vidal said: "I really don’t give a fuck. Look, am I going to sit and weep every time a young hooker feels as though she’s been taken advantage of?":giggle:[/SUP]

    It's depressing to think we've gone from WFB and GV to Glenn Beck and .....some stupid liberal pundit....

    I didn't agree with WFB on a lot of things, but he was intelligent and civil. He was also fun to watch, especially when he got that old lizard tongue thing going....

    I remember when WFB said he smoked pot once to try it. It was legal though because he went out on a boat in international waters so he wouldn't break the law...

    Did he seem civil when he said he would plaster Vidal in the face in the presented video? People holding differing political views have been petty and personal since Cain gave Abel the business in the great meat v. grain debate.
