The Cold Six Thousand

I love that James Ellroy is not only a great writer but also batshit crazy on a level that makes me look sane.

Just take a look a small sample of what he's quoted as saying in Saturday's Newark Star Ledger:

"Some innocent guy gets fried once in a while, I can live with that"


"Hillary looks like a bull dyke in a pantsuit, but at least she seems serious," he snarls. "McCain looks like Mr. Magoo. Obama looks like a f---ing lemur, a little rodent-like creature, a marsupial or something, I don't know. Jesus, I have no idea of what's going on in the world anymore. Where's Ronald Reagan, now that I really need him?"


"A woman from the New York Times interviewed me once and said what do you do at night? I said I talk to women who aren't in the room with me. She said, are they in your bathroom? She really didn't get it. I said no, they're in my brain. And that's the truth. They're in my soul, and by and large, at night, that's what I do. I lie in my bed, in the dark. And I talk to women who are not there."


I also love that on Gawker someone commented: "After writing "American Tabloid" Ellroy can come out in favor of raping babies and I'd have to at least consider his position on the matter."
