Gore Vidal on William F. Buckley: 'RIP -- in Hell'

Now that's he dead, tell us what you really think of William F. Buckley, Mr. Vidal? Wow. The headline on Truthdig.org says it all "Gore Vidal Speaks Seriously Ill of the Dead."

In an op-ed piece, Vidal rails against the founder of The National Review, Buckley's son Christopher, Newsweek magazine and the state of modern journalism.

Vidal labels Buckley a liar, ass-kisser, a most hysterical queen. Chris Buckley is called a creep. Is there an antonym for obituary? A posthumous take-down?
