The Crazy Stuff I Watch Sometimes

I had a discussion the other day with an elected Wise County official over whether "Team America - World Police" was liberal bashing or conservative bashing. I felt pretty confident that is was conservative bashing since it was produced by the makers of South Park. Of course, since I hadn't seen the movie, it made it a little tough to discuss. So I went an rented it. After being duly shocked by the puppets in, uh, intimate relations (you have to see it to believe it), I still wasn't sure who was being bashed more. Then I heard a piece on NPR's "On The Media" where a reporter had interviewed the South Park creators. They had said "We hate conservatives, but we hate liberals more." It kinda makes sense to me now. (But the Pat Robertson crowd would not like the movie.)

It never ceases to amaze me how far you will go to get to the bottom of a trivial issue. Keep up the good work.

I thought the movie actually had a very good message albeit one difficult to see thru all the mess. Bottom line is we aren't perfect but at least we try to do the right thing.
