Following the president’s State of the Union address, Frank Miller appeared this week on NPR’s Talk of the Nation, as they decided to “move past the political analysis and punditry and hear from innovative thinkers and creative minds about their view of the state of the country.” The site has a link to the audio file.
Other guests included singer Merle Haggard, screenwriter Nora Ephron and author Elizabeth Nunez.
Miller can be heard about 30 minutes into it. “Mighty cultures are almost never conquered; they crumble from within,” Miller says.
“Also I think that George Bush has an uncanny knack of being somebody people hate. I thought Clinton inspired more hatred than any president I’d ever seen, but I’ve never seen anything like Bush hatred. It’s completely mad.”
