Words Fail Gore Vidal
Gore Vidal has died. Perhaps you most treasured him for mixing it up with awful racist William F. Buckley, as above. (The aesthete Buckley called Vidal "a queer.") We loved him best for (okay, Burr, but also) this:
He and brute Norman Mailer were at a party when Mailer laid him out with one punch. From the floor, Vidal looked up at him, and (the precise quotation varies) intoned like a total catty bitch, "Words fail Norman Mailer once again."
Rebecca Schoenkopf is the owner, publisher, and editrix of Wonkette. She is a nice lady, SHUT UP YUH HUH. She is very tired with this fucking nonsense all of the time, and it would be terrific if you sent money to keep this bitch afloat. She is on maternity leave until 2033.
