When you are pro-war even the abortion doctors call you "baby-killer."

Oh, That Media!

The Simpson's has really REALLY jumped the shark.

They just tonight made fun of a *conservative* Itchy and Scratch cartoon being made in Korea. I'm sorry, wasn't The Simpson's largely created in Korea since like the second season or so?

And I love how they try to say Rupert Murdoch controls all media. Hmm, how do they explain the decidedly left-wing NBC, ABC, CBS, MSNBC, CNBC, CNN, NPR, The New York Times, The La Times, The Chicago Sun Times, The New Yorker...

I digress.

At least Mars Attacks had a bit of realism when France surrenders to the Martians. And I guess the innefectual spineless (I'm guessing) Democrat President. The President in Independence Day must have been a Republican, as he was a former fighter pilot and after learning of the alien's plans for earth said simply "Nuke 'em."

Oh and the totally disinterested public oblivious to the invasion, only until things actually blow up right next to them.

And somehow I don't think it is coincidence that HBO shows movies that are oddly prescient to the current events. As long as they don't show Twister and Top Gun alternately for two weeks straight, again.
