After showing some (not bad at all) examples of the right wing trashing Obama's election efforts, here is an example of an overexcited Republican: Christian Toto, a Breibart writer, tries to trash Sacha Baron Cohen, because... try to read it carefully:
Sacha Baron Cohen's "The Dictator" features a political speech that could have been stripped from any Occupy Wall Street protest.
A bit more details:
"The Dictator" casts Baron Cohen as a Middle Eastern dictator trying to recapture his country following a coup by a trusted associate (Sir Ben Kingsley). During a critical scene late in the film, Baron Cohen's General Aladeen character unleashes an angry rant against American capitalism and how unfair it is for society.So let me see how it goes: Sasha Baron Cohen plays a role of a Middle Eastern dictator and as such rants about the American capitalism. Which makes him a "ridiculously rich" member of the OWS crowd... have you got it?
Like most celebrity OWS supporters, Baron Cohen enjoys all the perks of capitalism while bashing the very system that made him ridiculously rich.
Sasha Baron Cohen if far from being my favorite comedian, but he has his moments. Anyway, I didn't expect that I'll have to explain to Christian Toto, who is somewhat of a movie critic as well, that there is (or let's say, might be) a difference between an actor who is playing a role and the person whose role is played by the actor.
Dear Christian: Steven Seagal doesn't kill ten villains for breakfast in real life. Clint Eastwood couldn't cut a hanging rope with a first shot from half a mile even if his life depended on it. And Meryl Streep isn't an Iron Lady or any other right wing politician. Graham Chapman (look him up) has hardly become a saint after playing Brian. I even dare say that various actors who played Hitler are not, for the most part, avowed Nazis.
Of course, one couldn't vouch for Donald Fauntleroy Duck, but I suspect that he is a Republican anyway, so we can overlook him.
Another good shot at the Republicans appears under a headline:
ROMNEY RACKING UP INDIFFERENDORSEMENTS
Rallying around Mitt Romney in much the same way suicide jumpers rally around the ground, Republican heavyweights have continued to endorse the “inevitable” GOP presidential candidate by using such superlatives as “yeah,” “(let’s) face it,” and “whatever.”Yeah... it's quite good, read it all.
“Face it, we got the best candidate we could out of the process,” South Carolina Rep. Mick Mulvaney actually said — out loud — at a Republican forum.
