That damned Bill Buckley

What's Mallard raving about today?

William Buckley.

I've always been amazed that people lined up intellectually behind a man who claimed to stand "athwart history yelling Stop." I mean, you take pride in that?

Buckley's greatest incarnation must be George W. Bush who has managed to unravel history as far back as the Magna Carta so far...and he's still got 7 month left to go.

Okay, who had 24 days in the "when will Bruce finally get around to eulogizing Bill Buckley" pool?

The penis-chin strikes back, I see. Mr. Buckley must be rolling in his grave right now.

I appreciated that Buckley always had at least the semblance of civility during debates. Now all we have are the Limbaughs and the Hannitys yelling at those they disagree with and not acting as if the other side had anything to contribute. It's such a shame.

Apparently he called someone a queer. And wanted to ban smoking towards the end.

That's all I'll remember about him 5 years from now anyways. But I'm sure Bruce will drink a few in his honor. Me, I've my own heroes and he's not on the list.

Holy s***, look at the pork-cork on that man's face.

"I owe much of who I am to your wisdom." Screaming Jeebus, if Buckles didn't once call for the forced tattooing of homosexuals, I'd consider that an insult coming from a dribbling little git like Tin-Tin.

Buckles was the monster Tinsley fantasizes he will one day become; a vicious fascist with a practiced pretense of intellect and civility.

In fairness, he was in favor of marijuana legalization.

That is the most insane picture so far of 2008. Bill Buckley as George Washington with a phallic chin the size of the Space Needle.

And we've got 10 months of GWB left--the inauguration isn't until January. I don't put it past a lamer-than lame GWB to launch an attack on Iran just to screw up HRC or BHO.

He would roll over in his grave but his penis chin keeps getting in the way!!!
