“So here we are, up to our elbows in the ignorance of polemic B.S., puzzling over when exactly America came to the saturation of Trumps and Huckabees braying cultural calumnies in the press. If you need a convenient scapegoat for all the jackasses jockeying for position in today’s presidential rodeo, maybe you should just blame ABC, the network that had the bright idea to pit William F. Buckley against Gore Vidal in televised debates more than 40 years ago. Did ABC know what they were doing when they staged that infamous verbal sparring match? Could they have predicted the far-reaching impact of their mad business stratagem?” (Via Paste Magazine.)
