The booing at the Academy Awards came from the nobodies, the jerks, the blue-collar wanks whom Michael Moore pretends (along with other gold-encrusted members of Hollywood’s anti-solidarity movement like Susan Sarandon) to be out there fighting for. His claim — that he has a connection with the “real” people — is, of course, quite true. He is as much a part of the hoi polloi as ever o’er-topped 18 stone, as common as a frog in the rain, as plain as a rat in a garbage dump — you get the picture. But he hates them. Detests them. Fears them. Freud will tell us why.p>Anyway, the stagehands, the riff-raff in the balconies, that’s who booed Mr. Moore. The other millionaires in the orchestra just sat there wishing they could really cheer, but it might mean not getting that ten mil they’re hoping to pull out of the pockets of their fans for their next film. So they stoically put up with the booing because they were going to some really great parties in just a little bit and they could all plot Bush’s overthrow there in the privacy of their mansions while their nameless, faceless servants served them delicacies and French Champagne and Saddam killed another couple of hundred citizens of his own country for not having a picture of Himself hanging on the wall. br> — Ned Wynn /p> p> AIR ON THE SIDE CAUTION br> Re: George Neumayr’s Pundit or Saint?
A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.
Mr. and Mrs. American Spectator Reader, let P.J. O’Rourke talk sense to your kids.
In Britain, defending your property can get you life.
The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
