Oliver Stone - I have no problem with anyone making any movie, CD, book, etc. they want and I never ever want that right to be taken away from anyone, no matter how idiotic they are or how distorted their work is. I nearly cried when there was talk of Palin banning books in a local library...until I found out it was a bunch of liberal BS, or a desperate attempt to find something wrong with the woman. As you may well know, Oliver Stone has a film, "W" coming out, which, as you can guess, is a film full of lies and distortions of President Bush. And I don't have a problem with that, but it does not stop me from thinking Oliver Stone is a hypocrite and well, a dumbass. Just check this out: Will Oliver Stone see success with his George W. Bush biopic? - Times Online In it, we learn the movie was funded by China, we hear Stone insult McCain's military service, insult Palin, and above all, he insults the country, which pisses me off the most. If it weren't for "ignorant" America, Oliver Stone would not have the career, the money, or the freedom to make whatever the hell movie he wants.
Which brings me to the new thing I'm going to do to counteract my "dumbass of the day." I'm going to post something about someone who has done something decent, informative, entertaining, patriotic, etc. I just can't figure out what to call them yet. Tonight's person is going to be Greg Gutfeld, host of Red Eye w/ Greg Gutfeld (3:00 AM, Fox News). As I said in my last post, it's hard to do smart political humor and it's rare we get any from someone who's not a big crazy liberal, but if you ever watch the show, read Gutfeld's writing, or see him on other radio and TV shows, you'll see a great mind at work. I could pull up just about anything he's written to prove this point, but today's "Gregalogue" as posted on his blog The Daily Gut, is about idiot college kids...and it's very clever and funny, but very true. Go ahead - click the link and check it out. It'll lower your blood pressure after you read the Oliver Stone article.
And by the way, if you have an idea of what I call call the person I choose each day who is not the dumbass, please let me know. And yes, "patriot" is already taken. (I swear that's not where I got the idea. I don't even really like Bill O'Reilly.)
And 10-7 means out of service. Which is where I'm going for the night. The end.
