notes on government, sports and popular culture
.....Krauthammer doesn't mince words
when he says "Syriana" is a bunch of liberal Jack Abramoff:
"Nothing tells you more about Hollywood than what it chooses to honor....But unitl you see 'Syriana,' nominated for best screenplay (and George Clooney, for best supporting actor) you have no idea how self-flagellation and self-loathing pass for complexity and moral seriousness in Hollywood.....
"Most liberalism is angst- and guilt-ridden, seeing moral equivalence everywhere. 'Syriana' is a different species entirely —a pathological variety that burns with the certainty of its malign anti-Americanism. Osama bin Laden could not have scripted this film with more conviction."
Any chance Clooney won't win an Oscar Sunday night?
