Gore Vidal dead at 86 from pneumonia
Gore Vidal that publicly gay author, writer, playwright and smart ass has died at 86. He traded barbs with the best of the best from the old conservative TV days of Buckley and the rest. Many don’t know him because he was from the old school but a part of the avant garde nonetheless. He will be known as an in-law of Jackie Kennedy I mean relative by marriage of mother they are not blood relatives.
Gore is also related to Al Gore some kinda way too. Gore Vidal was Jewish and Al Gore is also part Jewish and both were from political junkies who made it in politics but never to the presidency. Speaking of president Gore did know JFK and once famously noted that Jack had a “great ass.” He would notice that, oh boy.
Anyway it bon voyage to Gore Vidal who was one of the most famous gay men in American history.
