dennis miller?



Jay Leno: “I’m fascinated to hear your take on the election. Because you always have a little different look at things than most Hollywood people.”
Dennis Miller: “I want to congratulate my President. I think he had a great day. I think George Bush is a good man.”
[applause]
Leno: “Yeah? He did a fine job.”
Miller: “I think, I think he’s a good man and I think he’s done a fine job in these last two years. I don’t think he’s a great man but I would prefer that our President would be a good man because great men tend to believe they're great men and then they end up not being great men any more. I like Bush because he seems like a regular decent guy. And you know what? He’s a big picture guy. Which just shocks me. Because when he first came into the office I think many of us thought that he was the sort of guy who watched television one pixel at a time. But uh, shockingly he’s proven himself to be a big picture guy. I like his sense of humor. At least I hope it’s his sense of humor. I uh, sometimes think it’s Norm Crosby’s sense of humor. But uh, I think the thing I like most about him is that he’s not Clinton. I just think he’s a decent guy. I mean, you know...”
[applause]
Miller: “I’m telling ya when I watch those, the videotape of the retarded kids playing uh, tee-ball on the White House lawn, on the field that he built for them.
Leno: “Yeah.”
Miller: “And I juxtapose it with Clinton and the wocka-wocka porno guitar of the Clinton administration. I just like Bush, he makes me proud to be an American again. He’s just a decent guy.”
Leno: “He is a decent guy. But do you-”
Miller: “And you know what, what? Jay what, what are the Democrats really offering? You know I consider both sides in an election before I vote. I looked at what the Democrats are saying. They’re saying, 'Listen we want more of your money and we’re not really keen on preemptively protecting you from bad guys.' You know what folks? I don’t want the bad guys to have the next move. I don’t want to see two more big buildings blown up.”

Miller soon explained: “Listen, I began to go off liberal America when they insisted to me that Rudy Giuliani was a bad guy. You remember that years ago? How they told us Rudy Giuliani, they always like tinged on the Nazi reference.”
Leno: “Right, right, yeah right.”
Miller: “'He’s a storm-trooper! He’s a bad guy!’ Every time I’d go to New York it was cleaner and safer and I’d think, 'Wait a second how bad a guy can this guy be?’ And now you don’t hearing anybody saying that because it’s been proven out that Rudy Giuliani is a good man....”

After an ad break, he elaborated on Iraq: “It’s not a perfect world. Listen I think Bush’s old man could have ended this whole dilemma in the Middle East around 12 years ago. We were like two exits away on the Jersey Turnpike from croaking this toad and we back off because the coalition doesn’t want us to go up the road. Are you kidding me? The coalition? This better not happen again. You know Tony Blair is a cute kid and one of my favorite Martin Short characters in waiting, but the simple fact is we don’t consult the Brits on anything anymore. We haven’t listened to them since our boys dressed up like the Hakawi tribe and boosted all the Tetley tea in the Beantown Harbor around 200 years ago. I don’t want to ask the Brits what to do here. We gotta assassinate Saddam Hussein. Why have we taken assassination off the table as a viable political tool? And yet they’ll tell you the collateral damage of civilians is acceptable. But you’re not allowed to assassinate the main pain in the ass. My theory is if you have trouble with your conscience pretend you’re trying to kill the guy next to him and think of him as collateral damage, alright?! If that will allow you to get to bed at night.”
[applause]
Miller: “Listen. Negotiating with Saddam Hussein is about as practical as practicing aroma therapy on a French man. Okay? It’s not going to happen.”

Miller took on liberal wimpiness: “You know I find our approach to the, the war on terrorism to be amazingly non-chalant. I mean the simple fact is we are not being protective enough of ourselves. I think that was a mandate yesterday saying, 'Listen! We don’t want these morons trying to croak us!’ You know when the Al-Qaeda made a big mistake? Is when they whiffed that dog on videotape? That got the liberals into it. Because they’re all sitting at home with their Marmaduke day-planner saying, 'Wait a second? They croaked a puppy? Now it’s on mother-[bleeped]!”
[applause]

Obviously Mr. Miller was brainwashed during his brief stint with the Monday Night Football jocks. No thinking American thinks we should take action against peace-loving Saddam Hussein.

I think this guy should go to the head of the class....

MAVERICK director Larry Clark beat up the distributor for his movie "Ken Park" after the jerk declared that America deserved to get attacked on 9/11.
Clark, who helmed "Kids" and "Bully," delivered a brutal beat-down to Hamish McAlpine after the screwy Scotsman started spewing anti-American and anti-Israeli sentiments during dinner at London's posh Charlotte Street Hotel Thursday night.

An enraged Clark, 59, punched McAlpine several times in the face - breaking his nose - choked him, then overturned the dinner table on the bloodied big mouth.

Clark was arrested by London police - and now McAlpine is pulling "Ken Park" from the London Film Festival, where it was supposed to unspool tonight.

"He says he's not going to distribute the film now and he's pulling it from the film festival," Clark told us from London yesterday. "He can be mad at me for punching him in the nose, but don't take it out on 'Ken Park.' "

Clark said he lost it when McAlpine ranted that 9/11 "was the best thing that ever happened to America" and declared that innocent Israelis blown up by Palestnian suicide bombers "deserved to die."

"I was wrong," Clark said. "I shouldn't have punched him. I shouldn't have lost it. But at the same time, I wouldn't have been able to look myself in the mirror the next morning if I hadn't done anything. I'm not gonna let this [bleeping] idiot talk about supporting terrorism and the killing of innocent people. I am an American!"

Diners who witnessed the restaurant ruckus included "Ken Park" starlet Tiffany Limos, Clark's co-director, Edward Lachman, and Mel B of the Spice Girls, who was sitting at a nearby table. Clark said the police who arrested him were sympathetic. "The cops were very nice and they seemed to feel like they would have done the same thing," he told us. "They let me go with a ticket."

But "Ken Park" is sure to suffer a harsher fate than its hot-tempered helmer.

The controversial flick, which features lots of male and female full-frontal nudity and an explicit three-way sex scene, has yet to find a distributor in the U.S. Now, "Ken Park" may not be seen in the U.K.

The buzz surrounding "Ken Park" is similar to the chatter that accompanied the release of his debut "Kids," in 1995. The critically acclaimed flick featured a gang of Manhattan skater kids who spend their days brawling, doing drugs and having unprotected sex. It launched the careers of Chloe Sevigny and Rosario Dawson.

Invitees to tonight's aborted screening in London included director Steven Frears, designers Alexander McQueen and Stella McCartney, Matthew Williamson and Bay Garnett.

Big Grin Quote from article at Planetout.com

I think this is the type of thing Bama was referring to:

Hollywood and the Big Snubola

Some time back, during the presidential campaign, we saw an articulate Bo Derek on CNBC's Hardball talking up the Republican side. She remarked that, in Hollywood, admitting to Republican leanings can be a dangerous thing, careerwise. We didn't think much of it at the time, except perhaps to muse on Bo's languid career.

But now we've heard firsthand of what can happen to an actor who is even thought to be Republican. Sharon Lawrence, of NYPD Blue fame, was in Washington, D.C., for the inauguration, attending the Creative Coalition Ball -- a nonpartisan advocacy organization of the arts and entertainment community. In the Feb. 5 issue of People, Sharon's photo appeared on the same page as President George W. Bush, his daughters and several prominent Republicans. Since the publication of that photo, Sharon, a lifelong Democrat who worked for Al Gore, has received hate mail and has been approached on the streets of L.A., irately confronted about "being a Republican." Most disturbing, in a business meeting the other day, Sharon was chilled when a producer said, with heavy emphasis, "I have to ask, are you really a Republican?"

Considerably shaken, Lawrence tells us, "If one is even perceived to be a Republican in Hollywood, there can be an excluding reaction and people genuinely resent you!" (The actress's voice quavered a bit in relating her adventures in mistaken political identity.) So let's set the record straight: Sharon Lawrence is not a Republican.

However, we are ashamed of our fellow Yellow Dog Democrats in Tinseltown who would seek to ostracize others -- perhaps even deprive them of employment -- because they are members of the Grand Old Party. That's not the American way.
