In greatest travesty of the 21st century, a pretty white lady is denied a golden trophy

I'm glad the world has people like Scott Mendelson, to tell us who the real victims of the post-9/11 world are: millionaire Hollywood insiders, currently jetting around the world to receive praise, trophies, and fabulous giftbags from other millionaires.

In a completely unrelated story, the United States has stepped up its campaign of aerial terror against the impoverished, powerless people of Afghanistan and Pakistan.

Update: Mendelson has provided a link to a piece he wrote about drones, which is important for context and fairness.

Right now is MOST CERTAINLY not the time to talk about drones, Freddie. -K.

Now Freddie, progress on the treatment of dark skinned third world-ers doesn't have to come at the expense of making sure more women can get recognized for making movies!

Your politics of radical re-prioritization must make you feel real superior, don't it?

I think calling someone not getting an Academy Award a "moral outrage" is fucking absurd, no matter who that person is.

*poor attempt at gallows humor.

Having one thought does not preclude another thought...
