Charlton Heston says the Clinton White House reminds him of some characters in "The Wizard of Oz."

But the 75-year-old Heston told people at a fund-raiser for U.S. Rep. Roy Blunt over the weekend that "you'll have to sort out for yourself who they are."

Blunt, also without naming names, said some Clinton aides remind him of the Scarecrow (no brain), the Tin Man (no heart), the Lion (no courage) and the Wizard (a phony).

Heston, a vice president of the National Rifle Association, said "the fabric of our culture" is being torn apart and that the country seems to have become "a nation of warring gypsy camps, each with its own agenda."

Blunt, who is seeking a second term from a conservative southwest Missouri district, also said tighter gun control laws would not have prevented the tragedy at an elementary school in Jonesboro, Ark., in which four children and their teacher were gunned down, allegedly by two young students.
