So George Clooney likes “being a little out of touch.”
Hollywood in general doesn’t care just how out of touch it is. The latest example is “V for Vendetta,” produced by the same brother team that made the “Matrix” films a few years ago. Based on what used to be called a “comic book,” now called a “graphic novel” by the geeks and fan boys who buy them up, the movie has been turned into a left-wing marketing tool not so much against Operation Iraqi Freedom, but against the American government and its honorable attempts to prevent terrorist attacks here at home.
The movie (its website is here), has been getting awful reviews, so there is hope that it will quietly disappear without much noise. But think about this. An anti-American screed (set in London, so we won’t be able to make the connection, we suppose) released on St. Patrick’s Day. It doesn’t so much show a lack of understanding of the American people, it shows disrespect.
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?
