Spiegel is more insane than Ahmadinajad

In their interview with the Iranian nut-job, they throw this little zinger into one of their questions (on the second page of the article):

SPIEGEL: Mr. President, doesn't there come a time when one should accept that the world is the way it is and that we must accept the status quo? The war against Iraq has put Iran in a favorable position. The United States has suffered a de facto defeat in Iraq. Isn't it now time for Iran to become a constructive power of peace in the Middle East? Which would mean giving up its nuclear plans and inflammatory talk?

The United States has suffered a de facto defeat?

What exactly IS a "de facto" defeat? How in the h*ll are you defeated "de facto?"

What defeat? We're knocking the snot out of those terrorists out there. This is insanity. The Spiegel is apoplectic that the Iranian nut-job doesn't believe in the Holocaust, and yet they themselves think we're losing in Iraq. There's a word for that. It's called "irony."

It's PANDEMONIUM! Christians are rioting in the streets!

Now that their God has been blasphemed in this abomination of a movie (The Da Vinci Code), Christians all across the world have taken to the streets in angry mobs. Rioting has occurred ...

... well, nowhere. And no one has been killed. And there's no outcry of "Jesus Akbar!"

Oh, sure there's a lot of hurt feelings and impassioned denunciations. There may even be some who are condemning those responsible to eternal damnation. But, they are not God, and so their threats can be safely shrugged off.

I suppose Ron Howard and Dan Brown know who to pick on.

Hey guys, why don't you just step on a puppy next time?

UPDATE: One more thing to all you angry Christians: it's a NOVEL!

Rally of Support for Tom Cruise - Nut-job!

So a bunch of Hollywood bigwigs are showing public support for Tom Cruise.

Um, so what.

This is what kills me about Hollywood. They think their opinions should matter to the rest of us. I could give a rat's rear about what Susan Sarandon thinks (assuming that she does). And I'm not going to change my opinion about the nut-job Cruise just because a bunch of people who are beholden to him for their livelihood say I should.

I SAW the video clips of him acting all Cuckoo's Nest on Oprah. And now I'm supposed to say, "Oh, he's a great guy" because the guy who makes millions off of his movies tells me how talented he is.

Hey Hollywood! Here's how it works. You make the movies and WE tell YOU if they're good or not. How about that?
