Here is a YouTube video of Gore Vidal speaking out about the sad state of the Federal Government. There is a lot not to like about it: that he chose to give this interview on Iranian television, while not illegal, smacks a bit of Jane Fonda in Hanoi; and his fulsome praise of Dennis Kucinich doesn't sit well with Ohioans who have long memories (even though Rep. Kucinich does deserve credit for being the only congressman with the courage to propose impeachment against a Vice President and President who would certainly be convicted -- if we only had a Congress that respected the Constitution).
Still, it is hard to argue with the truth of what he is saying. "We don't have a republic anymore ... we are a framework for crooks to go in and steal money, and know they will never get caught."
