Those two totally hooked up after the show.
Even Gore Vidal has kissed more boys than me!
Girls, Lisa. Boys kiss girls.

This is how every conversation with Gore Vidal ends up.
I love Vidal's glee at Buckley's incredibly lame threat. A big cheerful grin that morphs into the satisfied smirk of a man who's taking a moment to size up his opponent and is realizing just how badly he'd fuck this guy up.
Man, Fox News isn't doing anything new at all, is it? The interruptions, the ad hominem attacks in place of actual debate, the macho posturing... the only real difference is that at least Buckley had some level of military service to exaggerate about.
Vidal sounds like a young Bill Maher trying to smug his way to the top of the conversation; he's grinning because he got to Buckley, who only bit back after Vidal made it clear that he was only going to respond with insults. Wait, who are you comparing to Fox News?
Show this to a modern audience and 99 percent of them would pick out Buckley as the queer
I just honestly can't get over Buckley's voice. He sounds like how I imagine the New Yorker mascot guy's voice would sound.

Wow, it's just like the POEN forums!
Much like a rubber ducky is the closest thing to the titanic, if all you have is the rubber ducky.
I couldn't agree with you more. I'm only a Buckley wanna-be, and I think the guy's a total genius.
Because in the end, I've wanted to punch out Gore Vidal too at times.
