Rest in Peace, MoFo
When I was a little kid, I used to watch a news talk show called "Firing Line."
William F. Buckley was the host, and though I didn't have the political savvy at age 8to know conservatives from liberals, I did know Buckley was erudite, intelligent and he sounded real fancy.
His clipped accent sounded sort of Kennedyish to my little ears, so I figured he was worth a listen.
But then I'd see him arguing with people I liked, and I figured out something was wrong with him.
Little did I know then that Buckley would become the patriarch to a nation of right wing, fear mongering, greedy, fascist Republicans.
Yes, he started this and now he's dead.
