Gore Vidal Behind the Orange Curtain: 5 Great Lines from Author's Nixon Library Visit (WTF?)

Perhaps one of Orange County's most incongruous moments happened the evening of Aug. 26, 2009, when George McGovern and the now-late Gore Vidal entertained a packed house at the Richard Nixon Presidential Library and Museum in Yorba Linda–yes, that Richard Nixon Presidential Library and Museum in Yorba Linda.

Vidal died of pneumonia Tuesday at his Hollywood Hills home. He was 86.

Rather than wallow in despair over losing a celebrated and prolific author (and often ornery Son of a Biscuit), we've decided to recycle some classic Vidal from that magical night in Dick's place.
