Phil Donahue: "Let’s fight
communism by making it safe for your mother to be on the New York
subway. Let’s fight communism that way. Let’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, ‘more bombs, more bullets, let’s get the
beachhead!’ Now the beachhead, as, like, Managua’s a beachhead like
World War II. You’re living like in an old ‘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 CNN’s Larry King Live, May 31.
