Why We Fight

Why We Fight from Big Hollywood, a blog that I discovered yesterday and am enjoying.

“It seems to me that the Left has won: utterly and decisively. What I mean is, the Saturday Night Live, Jon Stewart, Bill Maher mentality has prevailed. They decide what a person’s image is, and those images stick. They are the ones who say that Cheney’s a monster, W.’s stupid, and Palin’s a bimbo. And the country, apparently, follows.”

So true, and quite frankly, a bit scary.

Yesterday I overheard two people talking about how stupid Palin is, saying she could "see Russia from her back porch". Ughhh... First of all, Palin didn't say that, Tina Fey 'as Palin' did on Saturday Night Live. Sarah Palin said that you could see Russia from Alaska, which you most certainly can. (Psst, it is only 2.4 miles away). I bit my lip.

Journalists especially have so shamed themselves in their coverage of the last election–hounding Sarah Palin’s daughter and Joe the Plumber while all but ignoring Barack Obama’s ties to Illinois corruption, and his long and deep association with the racist anti-American Jeremiah Wright

Another interesting post.

I’m as tired of irony and negativity as the next grown-up. And I would honestly love to see Obama succeed. But it’s funny that many of the same people who had no qualms setting their cynicism levels on 11 throughout the Bush presidency, suddenly want to dial it down to 0.

I have enjoyed this blog so far, the writing is very good, and I enjoy the "Hollywood" angle.
