Some friendly advice

Courtesy the L.A. Times totally rockin’ blogs...

Does one have to be a knuckle-dragging reactionary to be repulsed by Roman Polanski and his whole sordid namesake ordeal or does the Tinsel town literati just make it seem that way?

For the Times, the drugging and forced sodomy of a 13 yr. old = long-ago personal transgression.

The mere mention of Polanski is bordering on Hitler territory where any rationalization of anything even as benign as say his interpersonal management style (I am against everything Hitler ever did or stood for, however, he did….) makes one look like a complete imbecile.

The current tack of the Hollywood liberati is to defend Polanski by attacking the right-wingers for their attacks on Polanski, reminiscent of Cold War anti-anti-communists: Though we are somewhat troubled regarding what he did to an underaged girl over 30 years ago… he’s like a really good director or something.

Memo to Hollywood: Stop it. The man and everything about him is toxic. You stumble right into the briar patch with your righteous indignation concerning conservatives’ treatment of the man, looking the fool while doing it while re-enforcing the image of Hollywood as a relativistic cesspool.

We hereby declare this site as a Polanski-free zone.

To quote from the movie Chinatown:

Yelburton: After you've worked with a man a certain length of time, you come to know his habits, his values - you come to know him - and either he's the kind who chases after women or he isn't.

Jake Gittes: Mulwray isn't?

Yelburton: He never even kids about it.

Jake Gittes: Well, maybe he takes it very seriously.

We can expect little else from an ends justify the means culture.

Every promo for Polanski's new film, The Ghost Writer" ends with, "this movie is rated R and may not be suitable for children under the age of thirteen"

Such irony

Sorry Ms. Z, I didn't mean to jumpstart a vomit, but I listen to alot of am radio and frankly was shocked no one has pointed out the irony.
