OSCARS OVERVIEW... MORE LIBERAL IDOL WORSHIP

OSCARS OVERVIEW... MORE LIBERAL IDOL WORSHIP

So, the ratings are in, and I guess everyone is thrilled that the Oscars pulled in their highest rating since 2000. Big whoop:
The Oscars' 30.1 rating in Nielsen Media Research's 56 top markets was a slight 1 percent improvement over last year's comparable number, and the highest-rated Academy Awards in the metered markets since 2000. The rating is an estimate that nearly 33 million households were tuned in.

From Chris's Rocks raunchy opening to the sappy speeches from Clint and the Million Dollar Skank, frankly I wasn't so much offended as I was bored. Sure, these Oscars had their share of Bush bashing and liberal iidol worship, but I guess that was to be expected. From Wizbang:
Chris Rock's monologue goes right to Fahrenheit 9/11 Bush-bashing; Robin Williams segment looked like it may have tripped a network broadcast delay; the song of the year is in Spanish and honors Che Guevara; Ronald Reagan barely gets a golf clap in the memorium segment; etc...

Lest we forgot the "most honored film" of the night, Million Dollar Baby, glorifies assisted suicide - another liberal "cause". Yes, this was again a showcase and an outlet for all the liberal elite to gather amongst themselves to revell in their debauchery. How quaint.
By the way, does anyone remember the Chris Rock interview segment where he went to the Magic Johnson theatres in Urban LA to talk with real "ethnic" people? Did anyone beside me find that utterly offensive? If a white host had done that, we wouldn't hear the end of how racist and insensitive that segment was... But, I guess Chris Rock gets a pass because he is a minority. I was frankly disturbed at watching that mostly white audience yuck it up at the expense of some stereotypical minorities.
