Fake Real American alert.

Over at CPST, DNW told a weird anecdote about how he was watching a film by French director Francois Truffaut, and he noticed something peculiar. An extra was holding an axe wrong! Thus, it had to be, that the socialist French director Truffaut and all the Frenchies on set were clueless liberals who were out of touch with real working class folks.

Heh. So anyway, Sarah Palin apparently can’t shoot or fish properly. I mean, c’mon…pointing a shotgun at other humans? Man, she could pull a Dick Cheney, and whoever got shot would have to apologize to her. REAL MERKINS DON’T STEP IN FRONT OF A REPUBLICAN HOLDING A GUN!

Republicans use crap like this to try to turn politics into a culture game. Hey, Republicans may be responsible for our massive deficits and economic collapse, and they may have no solutions, but they shoot, and they hunt, and they go to church, and they wear suits, and they don’t swear, and they know how to build a porch, etc. etc. etc. Until they don’t, and then it doesn’t matter, because they’re on the side of those who do. And it doesn’t matter if liberals do those things too, because they’re crazy for not being Republicans, because Republicans shoot, hunt, go to church, etc. It’s really a great recipe for selling tax cuts for the wealthy, polluting the earth, and campaigning against health care for all Americans. Hey, I just had a kid, it’s time to start voting Republican! It’s bullshit, and if you don’t see the con, you’ll get conned.

    Drawing distinctions between fly fishermen and spinning reel fishermen is the realm of assholes so I don’t entirely agree with the linked article.

    As for DNW and his ham-fisted film reviews what can you say? Right wingers don’t understand art because it never occurs to them that someone would want to produce a thing of beauty without there being some base motive. The closest they can come to identifying with art is propaganda so therefore everything has to be interpreted that way. I couldn’t imagine looking upon an object of unique creation and perceiving it only through an ideological lens but in the mind of the commissar that is all that exists.

    Watch the show. I’ve heard a whole host of fishermen rag on her technique too. I just commented on the guns because that’s what I know better.
