The Gregalogue Of The day

By Greg Gutfeld

So in an interview today, Spike Lee said the election of Barack Obama is "predeortained" – a word that really doesn't exist, at least in the heads of sane people.

But does it matter?

The fact is, Mr. Lee is right. Obama's rise to power is "predeortained," at least when it comes to anyone who works in the media or entertainment industry.

So why is that?

It's simple: Obama embodies the most eloquent and appealing combination of every liberal cliché one could ever imagine molded into an agreeable life form. He's able to take every failed policy and every adolescent and/or misguided belief about wealth and foreign policy – and make it sound perfectly sensible. Even heroic!

He is, in effect, the perfect Hollywood president – not simply because Hollywood loves him – but because Hollywood made him.

Think about this: there has never been, in the history of moviemaking – a heroic non-liberal president. Whether he's played by Michael Douglas or Kevin Kline – what makes him appealing is his simple yet profound liberal virtues: i.e., bombing bad guys is wrong, the rich are corrupt, and the poor deserve your money and probably your Porsche.

Where the average Joe sees enterprise and industry, Hollywood and the MSM sees American greed and illegality. And that's the cause of all the world's problems (including perhaps their own massive coke habits).

Obama is so good at playing this role, that most in the media choose to ignore the basic socialist principles that serve as his ideological core. And by ignoring them, we put our country at risk. Look at it this way: wasn't the credit mess nothing more than an act of wealth redistribution? Banks were encouraged to give loans to high risk folks to buy houses they could not afford. It's Robin Hood at it's best – a free lunch that, in the end, we're all now paying for.

And this is what happens when you decide to rearrange a pie, instead of growing it. What you get is sticky fingers, instead of a full stomach.

And if you disagree with me, then you sir, are worse than Mars Blackman

About tedwest

A longtime veteran of comedy and political forums, I decided that I needed a more restful venue because... well... I finally hate everybody. Except my wife that is... and my ex-wife.. and... no, that's about it. I lead about as simple a life as one can, preferring activities that include anything that doesn't involve going out and seeing YOU! And I particularly enjoy what I call "Get the Bitch" movies on Lifetime. You know the ones where the intended victim finally does something so incredibly stupid that she forfeits her right to live, and from that moment on you're rooting for the stalker. Of course, it rarely works out the way you want, but when it does, the feeling you get is... well, there's nothing else like it, other than, maybe, eating chocolate chip cookies. Oh, and I'm proudly anti-wildlife, both foreign and domestic, and anti-environment - especially foreign environments. I think Howard Stern put it best when he said, "If fifty percent of the population died tomorrow, I can live with that." And I feel the same about the other fifty percent, so together, we've pretty much got it all covered.

  1. I agree that Obama is a Hollywood president.

  2. TedWest says:

    As I listened to Greg give the above monologue, I was caught up thinking about what I'd read a few days ago – that Sarah Palin might have a future in Hollywood, and I thought, the one with the Hollywood future should be Obama. He's plastic the way Hollywood likes their stars nowadays.
    But then I tried to picture him as President in a movie, and he didn't even fit well there. He's not believable the way other black actors are who have played the role.
