Good Morning Amerika

Last week, over a period of three days, Good Morning America spent almost 19 minutes promoting the Robert Redford anti-Iraq War film, Lions for Lambs. Because I know stuff, I can tell you with certainty that 19 minutes in TV talk show time is a virtual eternity. Now don't get me wrong, it's their show and they can do whatever they want. Hell, I sleep through the son of a bitch anyway. All I'm saying is that every minute which the stars of the movie, Redford, Meryl Streep, and Scientology's favorite midget, Tom Cruise, were allowed to preach their silly "Bush lied, people died" message was one less minute that could have been devoted to the perils of global warming. Instead of pimping a movie that has been universally panned and will fail, GMA should be teaching people how to recycle their farts.


"[Mother] had a lot of good ideas. One of her ideas was that everybody should have to vote. You have to vote. And if you don't, you're fined. And after three times that you're fined, then you don't get to be a citizen anymore. You can still stay here, you just have to go line up at the INS. And get your green card renewed and stand in that line. And then the great 62 percent who are eligible to vote, but don't vote, would motivate themselves. I think it's a really good idea." Meryl Streep, Good Morning America, November 8, 2007

Yeah, I know, she's joking. Except, not. If you don't believe me you can go here and fast forward to the 3:18 mark. Only from the left.

In MY America we have the right to vote, in Mother Streep's we would have the obligation to vote. I wonder if she would support shooting people who vote for the wrong candidate?

It goes without saying (so why am I saying it?) that Streep and her ilk are sympathetic to regimes all over the world in which citizens, on threat of violence, are told when and for whom to vote.

I'd like to think few would agree with her idea, but I'd bet that of those who did, 99% would be of the left.
