Tough times for leftie Hollywood. Nothing’s gone right this week. None of this is their fault, of course. In order to understand that it might not be a good idea to rally around a child rapist, bash religion in a religious country or trash capitalism in a capitalist country you have to live in the real world...Rightwing bloggers have far better message discipline than this consortium of filmmakers known as "Hollywood." You can get 138 film people to petition on Polanksi's behalf, but the backlash both in Tinseltown and on liberal blogs doesn't seem to register.
Oops, I see Janeane Garofalo has been implicated as well:
I wonder what her position is on raping 13-year-old girls or having threesomes with 15-year-olds is.Silence is consent! But even if she denounced Polanski through a bullhorn, what good would it do? David Steinberg:
Sorry, Leftism: You Don’t Get to Disown the Polanski List...You can't be on the right side of this issue unless Steinberg's light pen detects more movement in your pupils over a long-dead commie than over Michelle Malkin. These new standards of political correctness are getting awfully stringent, and apparently require an opthamologist's certification.
You drew a line on Polanski’s case, yes, but which word narrows your pupils: Guevara? Or Malkin?
Rightbloggers would have long ago supplanted the movies as America's largest entertainment industry, were they better able to monetize their efforts. They might try putting AlfonZo Rachel in a buddy comedy with Jackie Chan.
