Maurice Sendak: "Newt Gingrich is an Idiot"
Among the revelations in this brilliant interview of Maurice Sendak by Stephen Colbert:
Sendak thinks that Newt Gingrich is a “hopelessly gross and vile.”
The “wild rumpus” in “Where the Wild Things Are” is a reference to sex.
Maurice Sendak is gay (really? I had no idea)
Maurice Sendak is unfamiliar with common slang for penises
Sendak would never do a sequel to “Where the Wild Things Are”
Sendak is an adorably cantankerous old man.
