Classic Chomsky vs Buckley

I love these two comments that were left on you tube:

"what bill o'reilly does is play yahtzee, buckley played chess... thats how i'd compare him to the hacks holding shouting matches these days"

"most of you presume to call buckley an idiot, etc, but you have not read his writings and for this matter [k]no[w] nothing about him except from what your feeble minds can obtain from it.... obviously chomsky is tenfold sharper than him on principle and history, but buckley is a respectable intellectual"

As I agree both these guys are incredible intellectuals, it's just that Buckley was a total asshole and Chomsky perhaps the most decent man alive.


double bonus, Gore Vidal vs. William F. Buckley:
