Maurice Sendak Said Killing Bush Would Have Been 'Wonderful'
Maurice Sendak may have been even wilder than his "wild things."
In one of the children's book author's last interviews before he died of a stroke in May, Sendak said he thought about trying to assassinate former President George W. Bush and former Vice President Dick Cheney.
"Bush was president, I thought, 'Be brave. Tie a bomb to your shirt. Insist on going to the White House. And I want to have a big hug with the vice president, definitely. And his wife, and the president, and his wife, and anybody else that can fit into the love hug,'" Sendak told The Comics Journal's founder Gary Groth in an interview that will be published in the magazine's next edition.
"And then we'll blow ourselves up, and I'd be a hero," Sendak continued.
"It would have been a very brave and wonderful thing," said Sendak, who wrote the whimsical "Where the Wild Things Are."
Sendak has had his share of unorthodox comments, although none perhaps as violent as pondering a presidential assassination.
He called former GOP presidential candidate Newt Gingrich "an idiot of great renown."
"There is something so hopelessly gross and vile about him that it's hard to take him seriously," Sendak told comedian Stephen Colbert in January.
And in 2008, shortly after his 80 th birthday, Sendak told the New York Times, "I hate people," adding that he would rather spend time with his dog Herman.

This crud belonged to a very exclusive fraternity - he’s one of the few people the world is a better place without.
>>”There is something so hopelessly gross and vile about him<<
Sheer projection (which is all libtards have).
I hope he died in agony.

Stroking out was too easy.
“I hate people,”... it’s OK. they hate you,too.
He is burning in hell as we speak.
Only if you have children.
I never heard of this moonbat, but he should have croaked 20 years ago. ‘eff the left.
The a*****e is no longer with us.
Can't we just say "Good Riddance," and forget he ever existed?
Works for me.
You must be a far more forgiving sort than am I...I think there are millions (if not billions) of people that the world would be a better place without.
At least Newt could write books at the adult level for adults to read.
A liberal's idea of intellectualism is to kill, or express their wet dreams of murdering, anybody with whom they disagree.
Childish rants by children's book "authors" fail to impress me.
Like all libtards: A hater till the end. Sendak mentioned in a September 2008 article in The New York Times that he was gay and had lived with his partner, psychoanalyst Dr. Eugene Glynn, for 50 years before Glynn’s death in May 2007. Sendak died in the morning of May 8, 2012, in Danbury, Connecticut, from complications of a stroke. See ya, wouldnt want to be ya!
“Is the name Maurice Sendak supposed to mean something to me?”
Probably not. But like that great children’s storyteller before him, Theodor Seuss Geisel, better known as “Dr. Seuss”, Maurice was a notorious lefty, and unable to think outside that box he had voluntarily set around himself. This is a disease of living in a highly cloistered neighborhood, where nobody even KNEW anybody who may have been Republican, let alone a principled one.
But be assured that the “red diaper baby” syndrome leaves a lifelong impression.
It amazes me to no end how bad liberalism rots out the human brain...just fascinating, really. May he burn generously and forever. Good riddance of bad rubbish.
Another vile/evil gay takes a long deserved dirt bath!
Maurice Sendak on the death of his longtime partner, his recent triple-bypass, and ... He paused for a few moments and answered, Well, that Im gay
Author Maurice Sendak: Im Gay | Advocate.com
Childrens book author Maurice Sendak has been asked many questions throughout his career, but when New York Times writer Patricia Cohen asked if there is anything ...
It shouldn’t really matter — it doesn’t at all to me — what the dead guy had to say.
. . . and apparently, obama reads Sendak’s “Where the Wild Things Are” every year at the EASTER EGG ROLL to the children on the White House lawn.
