LA Weekly: Features: Uncensored Gore

LA Weekly: Features: Uncensored Gore: "[Gore] Vidal undoubtedly had current pols like Bush and Ashcroft in mind when he wrote his latest book, his third in two years. Inventing a Nation: Washington, Adams, Jefferson takes us deep into the psyches of the patriotic trio. And even with all of their human foibles on display � vanity, ambition, hubris, envy and insecurity � their shared and profoundly rooted commitment to building the first democratic nation on Earth comes straight to the fore."

More reading, historical context, and vitriol.
