Move on, already

Obamicon
Christ, I'm sick of getting email from moveon.org telling me that the White House doesn't want me to see The Day After Tomorrow. Is it just me, or are these people getting annoyingly shrill? They're starting to sound like the PAC that cried wolf, which is too bad.

I don't really see what the fuss is about. I mean, it's a disaster movie. This one has an eco angle, but there have been such movies before, and there will be plenty more in the future. There's a tsunami, an earthquake, a flood, intelligent apes, dolphins with opposable thumbs. Whatever.

I really can't imagine getting that excited about anything Hollywood does, personally, and it's not the shrillness that bothers me so much as that I can think of bigger things to get upset about. Like the upcoming Republican National Convention, which displeases me. I mean, really, I've had quite enough, and these people can bloody well shove off and put some other city at risk.

This cranky rant has been brought to you by the letter "E."

I agree with you completely. What the heck are the GOPs doing in a Blue State anyway besides trying to take advantage of the proximity to Ground Zero? I hope that backfires on them politically, just as I hope our intelligence community can get it together to prevent whatever terrorist attack on them might be being planned.

Moveon.org's brilliant idea is to mobilize people to hand out eco-flyers outside of theaters showing The Day After Tomorrow. This will likely be as effective as the people handing out anti-Mormon tracts outside the Lincoln Center annex Manhattan LDS temple.

Yeah, I'm thinking that a trip to the Jersey shore over the convention might be a fine idea, and the paranoid side of me wonders if some sort of attack might benefit the Republicans.

I've wondered it too.

If it happens, Bush will probably claim Jacques Chirac did it in league with Osama bin Laden, and every illiterate in the country will goosestep beneath the flag in approval as the Oklahoma National Guard takes Paris.

Somethng smallish, contained, in midtown, and barely missing the president woudl gain much sympathy.

Really, you know me, know I'm not a conspiracy nut, know I'm not paranoid. Usually.

Amen.

Say, do you know if there's an RSS feed of Teresa's real blog available on LJ?
