Isn't that what this sentence says? "The choice of Rains was indeed inspired, especially in contrast to Murray, who is played by Donald Wolfit. While Wolfit is certainly a decent enough actor, he is not nearly as great as Rains."

That subject is ripe for a post too.

I think in this case they'll continue to turn their backs on him simply because he made himself a laughingstock by trying to lie his way out of such a silly problem. It showed such an incredibly bad lack of judgement - not just in the act of taking & sending the prickture, but in his efforts to claim "hacked" status. No one believed him, not even John Stewart.

Lehane is right - he could've simply stepped up and said, "I didn't do anything wrong, I was just stupid, I have a problem, going into rehab, be back in four weeks" and be done with the whole thing, instead of paying a bunch of creeps to stalk people, out people on TMZ, and so on...

When I need to purchase 1000+ I would most certainly take a trip there. Want to see Thailand, Japan, and the Great Wall, if the commies will let me in after all the crap I've written about them :)

It's not per se about teaching. In fact it's really about not consciously teaching...

"Murphy Brown" didn't try to teach anyone anything. The writers and creators of the show just had fun making jokes about GWB and Dan Quayle being morons. They believed it.

Yep.

For most of these things, no serious investment is really required except attention and a willingness by conservatives to, at the very least, take a look. Comedians, writers, musicians... these crafts don't really take a lot of capital.

Movies and tv are where it's really "at", though, and both take serious capital to get off the ground.

And no, religious movies in the vein of "Passion" aren't really the answer, and neither are documentaries babbling on darkly about the liberal menace, which really only preach to the choir.

I had some hope that the Atlas Shrugged movies would be the start of something, but unfortunately, the quality wasn't there.

It is hard to be angry at people for succumbing to propaganda when that's all they've been exposed to. Some manage to figure it out by some miracle, but these sort are exceedingly rare.

You don't actually have to use evil to do combat evil, but you do have to have to understand what it's doing. The Republican-GOP "brand" has been slaughtered by mindless snark in the pop-culture world, and none of the people at the top have any clue whatsoever what's happening.

Noonan, Will, Morris, Rove, etc. - all these people think it's about policies, marketing maneuvers, etc. It's not. It's about high school clique games.
