Moonie Clooney Strikes Again

In an upcoming film release George Clooney, media-Communist-heir-apparent to the 1950's "Hollywood 10" plays a character that points fingers at all the corporate corruption of recent years. In publicity for the movie and the character, Mr. Clooney waxes philosophic about the immorality of corporate people. He chooses his words carefully, desperately trying to sound poetic and profound.

Now, here's the zinger. I'll just quote the article at Yahoo News [link] to give you the full flavor of Mr. Clooney's "moon-battishness."

Clooney was visibly irritated when asked if his endorsement of products for big companies clashed in any way with his performance in a film about corporate greed and corruption.

"I'm not going to apologize to you for trying to make a living once in a while," he said. "I don't really have an answer for you on that. It's sort of an irritating question."

After switching off his microphone, he continued to mutter angrily, although it was inaudible to the audience.

Ah, George. You may have a point with your movie message, but when dealing with your own hypocrisy, you're going to have to do better than that.

It's a textbook case of the Liberal tactic of resorting to emotion and name-calling when facts get in the way. Of course I myself do plenty of name calling as well -- but I do it "in addition" to the facts, rather than "instead of" the facts, like Liberals.
