William Buckley Vs Gore Vidal

O célebre encontro Buckley (editor e fundador da National Review) Vs Gore

Via Gore Vidal, RIP, Center for a Stateless Society

"(...) His long-running feud with the late William F. Buckley, Jr. encapsulated the politics of the last half of the 20th century in serial vignette form (the high point being Buckley’s meltdown, live on national television, as the two provided dueling commentary on the 1968 Democratic National Convention — “Now listen, you queer. Stop calling me a crypto-Nazi, or I’ll sock you in the goddamn face and you’ll stay plastered”)."

O que alguma-muita-dita-direita-dita-liberal não perceberá:

"As Buckley moved to reconcile the conservative movement with the total state, Vidal in turn attempted to salvage such value as the dying (at Buckley’s, among others, hand) political right embodied and fuse it with his leftist analysis of decadence in the political status quo."
