JUMP BACK | BE FORWARD

Well, the founder of modern conservativism -- which is not to say the founder of the mutant plague strain of post-modern conservativism that's currently in vogue wherever mouths are foaming -- has kicked the bucket. The man who canonized Reagan even as he knew the man was a total fraud, the man who suggested we tattoo the buttocks of gay men with AIDS, the man who made slouching around and being incoherent a sign of intellectualism just as the aristocrats of yore had made it a sign of idiocy, is no longer with us.

I've said my piece about Bill Buckley elsewhere, so I'll just leave you with the image of him forlornly kicking around Heaven, wondering where Nixon is and why no one will talk to him.

By the way, how long did it take anybody to notice he was dead?

Yeah, I bet he could sit there slouching, drooling and going "Ahrrrrrrrr" for hours before anyone realized he had had a stroke.

When hearing or reading of William Buckley jr. I am constantly making the mistake of temporarily mistaking him for Ed Begley jr.

I'm curious who that association would irritate more, Buckley, or Begley.

If there's one thing upon which I pride myself, it's scoring cheap points off of dead people.
