A one-time school project gone terribly, terribly wrong.

A Few Remarks

Concerning the genre offering (said genre being sweaty-nearly-nude-really-cut-young-guy-but-only-in-an-acceptably-heterosexual-way) film 300. These remarks come from Mr. Dan Savage, who deserves a Medal of Freedom at least as much as Franks, Bremer, or Tenet, but will probably never get one from the twice-born coke freak in the White House for some reason.
Homophobic? It's Ann Coulter on a meth binge.
--And no-one wants to see that.

Oh, I dunno though ...
The Persian army is an armed gay-pride parade, a threat to all things decent and, uh, Greek.
--'Cos we know the Greeks, they aren't about the boyz a-tall.
The Persian emperor? An eight-foot-tall black drag queen.
--And no-one wants to see that.

Oh, I dunno though ...
Why gay up the Persians? So the straight males in the audience can identify with the Spartan King and his 300 soldiers [...] from the International Male catalog.
--Without admitting that their eyes aren't roving over the sole female character in the film.

These are Mr. Savage's opinions, not mine. But we pretty much agree on this. Especially the bit where he says that:
What isn't up for debate are the film's politics [...] George Bush is going to blow a load in his pants when he sees this movie.
--And nobody wants to see that.



No, nobody at all.

Dan Savage deserves a Medal of Freedom alone for giving the proper connotations to Rick Santorum's name

Indeed. And now that Newt Gingrich appears to be clawing his way out of whatever vat of formaldehyde thay've been keeping him in, I think it might be time for Savage to find a term for him as well.

"Newt Gingrich"--certainly sounds like an act involving an ass. At least one.
