“Author Mailer Has Few Kind Words for President Bush.” Article-interview by Kevin Walker. Tampa Tribune, 7 February, 6. Speaking at the Florida Suncoast Writers’ Conference after his keynote address on 6 February, Mailer said, “George Bush must be defeated. He’s vain. He’s arrogant. I’m not a knee-jerk Democrat, but I will be voting for Kerry.” Noting that Americans have difficulty balancing Christian idealism and the American dream of “piling up mountains of moolah,” he said, “Jesus Christ and Evil Knievel don’t consort too well in one psyche.”
