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.
