Nicely Played, WFB

As quoted at the Media Research Center's DisHonors Awards Dinner here:

I'll close with William F. Buckley's commentary on Alec Baldwin's nomination for the "I'm Not a Political Genius But I Play One on TV Award," because it's so delightfully Buckleyan. Baldwin lost to Rosie O'Donnell and Buckley explains exactly why. Here's Baldwin's quote:

"Most Republicans who are registered Republicans are decent, honest good people who you have a difference of opinion with. The leadership of the Republican Party are a bunch of sociopathic maniacs who have their lips super-glued to the ass of the conservative right."

Here is Buckley's assessment:

"The image is vivid, but polemically unsatisfying. Glued, perhaps. But super-glued? The hyperbole offends."

Hee. Buckley = the man.
