With the rash of whacky medical wisdom coming from Hollywood, someone, at least NY POst needs to say STFU! Movies should NOT talk back!

Roman Polanski is miffed and boy, do we all get a talking to!. He writes – many times and in each paragraph

I can remain silent no longer!

There’s scolding to be done!

The narcissistic rapist is outraged that his cushy escape life has been rudely interrupted

had landed with a view to receiving a lifetime award for my work from the representative of the Swiss Minister of Culture,

and for what? For raping a 13 years old?

Polanski is very annoyed with us – and especially with the judge who refused to abide to the wrist slapping code

33 years ago I pleaded guilty, and I served time at the prison for common law crimes at Chino, not in a VIP prison.Β  That period was to have covered the totality of my sentence.Β  By the time I left prison, the judge had changed his mind and claimed that the time served at Chino did not fulfil (sic) the entire sentence, and it is this reversal that justified my leaving the United States.

“Common law crimes”? Sounds like “crimes for commoners. What were they, Roman? Bueler? Anyone?

Of course he, Polanski had to flee the jurisdiction – he was a celebrity damn it! And he already did hard time in the joint for what? An entire Forty two days and NOT even in a VIP prison? Oh, the humanity!

Polanski is outraged that the documentary designed to rehabilitate him (not unlike the interview after the crime bragging he foiled justice) blew in his face

The resulting documentary not only highlighted the fact that I left the United States because I had been treated unjustly; it also drew the ire of the Los Angeles authorities, who felt that they had been attacked and decided to request my extradition from Switzerland,

Roman Polanski is outraged that his victim(“I told him I wanted to go home, but he pulled me back in the room”) – to whom he never even paid the damages the settlement he promised to pay – couldn’t make a criminal case go away

I can remain silent no longer because the California court has dismissed the victim’s numerous requests that proceedings against me be dropped, once and for all, to spare her from further harassment every time this affair is raised once more.

I say, give that celebrity a pat on the back.

Shawshank Redemption this ain’t..


Jeralyn wants to free him still.

He acknowledged the facts establishing unlawful sexual intercourse with a person who was not his wife. He acknowledged Β knowing her age. That’s it.


New generations of girls await.

Charles Krauthamer makes a few good points in his column

The Democrats are in a panic. In a presidential race that is impossible to lose, they are behind. Obama devotees are frantically giving advice. Tom Friedman tells him to “start slamming down some phones.” Camille Paglia suggests, “be boring!” Meanwhile, a posse of Democratic lawyers, mainstream reporters, lefty bloggers and various other Obamaphiles are scouring the vast tundra of Alaska for something, anything

but he correctly says

But Palin is not just a problem for Obama. She is also a symptom of what ails him. Before Palin, Obama was the ultimate celebrity candidate. For no presidential nominee in living memory had the gap between adulation and achievement been so great. Which is why McCain’s Paris Hilton ads struck such a nerve.

A brief history of highs and lows followed, concluding that the shark jumping occured in Berlin and the Invesco speech was a strangecombination between the grandiose columns and the attempt to come down to earth in the content

The problem, however, was that Obama had announced the Invesco Field setting for the speech during the pre-Berlin flush of hubris. They were stuck with the Greek columns, the circus atmosphere, the rock star fireworks farewell — as opposed to the warmer, traditional, balloon-filled convention-hall hug-a-thon. The incongruity between text and context was apparent. Obama was trying to make himself ordinary — and serious — but could hardly remember how.

No wonder the media is getting mad – they worked so hard to create all this!

Not thinking much more of Palin’s fame Krauthammer concludes

But her job is easier. She only has to remain airborne for seven more weeks. Obama maintained altitude for an astonishing four years. In politics, as in all games, however, it’s the finish that counts.

And, every time I read this, I am reminded of what Obama said to Letterman the other night:

“She is a phenomenon. Take it from someone who used to be on the vovers of Newsweek and Time. Now, popular Mechanics called about maybe doing a spread”

And Sardi gives me the table next to the kitchen,,,and the bouncers of the cool clubs….

It’s OK, Barack…You’ll always have Paris…Or Britney…Or…Berlin?

These twp pieces of news came almost at the same time and complete each other perfectly:

McCain’s dreamy ad (video there too)

Calling Obama “dreamy,” the spot features a woman praising “the aura around him” and another the Democrat’s “very soft eyes.”

A man then summarizes, “Hot chicks dig Obama,” before Wayne and Garth of “Wayne’s World” fame are shown on their knees doing their signature “we’re not worthy!” routine.

and then Bo texting his VP to his BFFs (or fans)

So this way, if you’re OMG OMG TOTALLY DESPERATE to learn whom Obama has chosen for his veep, you can sign up and learn the moment it’s announced–even before anybody Twitters it. The timing seems a little bit awkward, considering the whole Paris Hilton ad debacle. Text-message alerts for Obama’s vice president assumes the sort of eager anticipation generally reserved for the second or two of Best Picture envelope-opening at the Oscars, or the naming of the Brangelina brood’s latest member. You know, celebrity.

and , after he texts us, let’s all do the salute and moon the non-Obots! We are better than them, we know things they don’t!

Like, OMG!

Of course there’s the less frivolous aspect of this is that it precludes questioning.

And more proof that it’s getting to Obama:

McCain’s ‘celebrity’ taunts are bugging Obama

The first time, Obama dismissed the assertion as “baloney.” On Monday, Obama took a different tack with a commercial that says McCain, not he, is “Washington’s biggest celebrity.”

Holt, the GOP strategist, said, “If the celebrity issue were not hurting them, they would have ignored it.”
