A Sunday treat: the late Christopher Hitchens appears on “Firing Line” soon after the ’84 presidential election. Joining him are host William F. Buckley, Jr. and Emmett Tyrrell, the latter about to begin a career in right wing ratfucking. I got the sense that early in the interview Buckley realized Tyrell, ostensibly on his side, was a troglodyte and would much rah-ther continue sparring with Hitchens over drinks after the taping.
TYRELL: If you would like to read, Christopher, perhaps we’ll have organ music. Bill, did you bring your harpsichord?
BUCKLEY: Harpsichords make very poo-ah organ music.
