I can't wait to hear George Allen's thoughts on "Diff'rent Strokes"

James Wolcott:

"According to an exclusive report on Salon, Allen, his tongue loosened after too many hits of snuff, snidely disparaged the sitcom dry-cleaning magnate George Jefferson, performed with such panache by Sherman Hensley, "as a cocky little squirt who needed to be taught a lesson" and Tom Willis as "a traitor to his race--the human race." Allen's running critique of the show also betrayed uneasy hints of homophobia, evidenced by his jibes that Mr. Bentley was a bit "minty" for his tastes."

You won't believe what he said during "All in the Family."
