'We Live in a Dictatorship. We Have a Fascist Government ...Which Controls the Media'

We have a winner of the coveted Unhinged Moonbat of the Day.

Does anyone take this maniac seriously?
IT will take the the United States a century to recover from the damage wreaked by President George W Bush, US writer Gore Vidal said in an interview published today.

"The president behaved like a virtual criminal but we didn't have the courage to sack him for fear of violating the American constitution,'' Mr Vidal told the El Mundo newspaper.

The author, a trenchant critic of the US-led invasion of Iraq, said it would take the United States 100 years to repair the damage caused by Bush.

"We live in a dictatorship. We have a fascist government ...which controls the media,'' he said.
Hello? Anyone home? Has he ever noticed how far left the media tilts?

Naturally, he thinks an empty suit like Barack Obama is intelligent.

This is the same guy questioning Jahn McCain's time spent as a POW.
In an interview for this Sunday's edition of The New York Times Magazine, famed novelist/essayist Gore Vidal appears to question Sen. John McCain's account of being imprisoned by the North Vietnamese during the Vietnam war.

Asked what he thinks of McCain, Vidal calls him a "disaster," then tells Deborah Solomon, "Who started this rumor that he was a war hero? Where does that come from, aside from himself? About his suffering in the prison war camp?"

Solomon replies: "Everyone knows he was a prisoner of war in North Vietnam." To which Vidal responds: "That’s what he tells us."
Classy guy.
Asked how he felt when he heard about the passing earlier this year of his conservative nemesis, William F. Buckley, Vidal says, "I thought hell is bound to be a livelier place, as he joins forever those whom he served in life, applauding their prejudices and fanning their hatred."
Just a tad bitter with his lot in life.
