I caught part of the Oscars and more than ever I think that Hollywood is aiming to appeal to people who don’t live in America. That’s fine, of course, except that most of its target audience lumps Hollywood in the same sentence as the slurs ‘McDonald’s and Bush’.
There was the requisite Bush bashing from Chris Rock, which bothers me a lot less than the retarded earnestness of people like Tim Robbins with the rhinestone peace sign on his tie.
Did anyone catch Selma Hayek’s homage to Che Guevara? What a passionate man. Not as passionate as Stalin or Hitler, but then he didn’t live as long either. Roger Simon says it best:

What’s with all the Che bashing? Andrew Jackson is on the United States currency and was elected President despite being one of the most vicious, barbaric killers (even outside the confines of formal war) in his time.
Che loving and Che bashing go together like peanut butter and jelly.
Predictably, like a knee-jerk (and I do mean jerk) Dawnie desperately counters with a hate America response in order to protect a commie mass murderer.
Che’s legacy of violence, torture and oppression survives until today. The fact that he’s a symbol of cool for people who will never have to deal with any of it is annoying.
Nonsense. The fact that Che, a vicious Communista, is a symbol of cool and that people would be willing to buy T-shirts, mouse pads, coffee mugs, etc. with his face on them is sweet, sweet irony.
Che=killer. Check. I get that, but so were a lot of people who are still prominently featured in modern society.
It’s less about Che being a killer in his own day as that he has left a destructive political system and a continuation of his legacy of murder for Cubans to enjoy until this very day.
