And Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close is... Ron Paul?

Or some other lukewarm cling-monkey: "If I were feeling less generous and more cynical on this holiest of all Oscar-calendar mornings, I might say that to decipher this year’s Academy Awards contest, we need only look for inspiration to the GOP presidential race. The Artist is Mitt Romney — desperate to please, doesn’t stand for anything in particular, not especially popular with the general public, will eventually keep most of its money offshore, and, though dinged up and trash-talked, will probably cross the finish line first by default. The Descendants is Newt Gingrich (emotionally unsteady, hard on wives, doing better than expected, but probably can’t go all the way). Hugo is Rick Santorum (a little slow, doesn’t really like anything that changed in the culture in the last 80 years). And The Tree of Life is Jon Huntsman (believes in evolution, probably a little too classy for this field)." [Grantland]

    That's awesome. Shocked that the comments section isn't overrun with Paultards. Love your comparison with the Daldry though, Stu. Much like the soon to be former Texas congressman, we're shocked to see it included amongst serious finalists, and I'm sure those who are EL&IC superfans are just as obnoxious.

      Shhh... don't get them back. I'd rather engage with a Twihard or a Nolan-ite than them again.

      • S.T. VanAirsdale says:

        Just don't engage! I'm mostly waiting to see who charges in to say "NO YOU IDIOT, ROMNEY IS MONEYBALL"

        • The Winchester says:

          Technically all of them are The Help, but solely because of that pie scene. TOPICAL!

            Haha. Love it. And nobody cares about Willard that much. Not even one of his dozen beaming broad shouldered fair haired Brooks Brothers catalogue model sons.

      Really? Do you really lurk on news websites throwing out horrible comments in the hopes that whomever you choose to insult on this particular day will respond back? Really? I bet some days you insult anyone who doesn't like Paul and some days you insult Paul right? Some days you throw out comments against Muslims and then other days they are against Jews. Some days you insult gay people, other days its homophobics. I'll go you one better J'accuse and just insult you personally you bigoted redneck. For the record its no one else, no general category of people who disagree with me, I just don't like you, you cockroach. Scurry back in your hole.

    This made me chuckle. Possibly the bitchiest article I've ever read about the Oscars. I can't imagine storing up so many negative opinions in my body. I don't know why some right leaning political writers do stuff like this tbh.

  • Artist-hating Charles says:

    Now I understand why Hugo is my favorite of the nominees. Very funny stuff.

    Not sure about other RP supporters, but I don't watch movies, so I can't comment on this article. I generally spend my working, reading news, and researching various things (non-political).
