Phil Donahue: "Letâ€™s fight
communism by making it safe for your mother to be on the New York
subway. Letâ€™s fight communism that way. Letâ€™s make America work. You and
the Reagan ideologues have spent us into oblivion -- our children are
going to have to pay this bill -- and you step forward, like some
religious figure saying, â€˜more bombs, more bullets, letâ€™s get the
beachhead!â€™ Now the beachhead, as, like, Managuaâ€™s a beachhead like
World War II. Youâ€™re living like in an old â€˜40's movie..."
Pat Buchanan: "Phil, calm down."
-- exchange on the April 25 Donahue.
"The [Catholic] Church has always thrived on ignorance and oppression."
-- Phil Donahue, interviewed by Pat Buchanan on CNNâ€™s Larry King Live, May 31.
