The Argument For A Two-Drink Minimum

Posted by John Pegway | Posted in Barack Obama, celebrity babble, Funniest 2008, Hollywood | Posted on 30-04-2008


Larry King just asked Barack Obama-booster Michael Moore what Moore would do if he were president.

One of Moore’s proposals: “Free HBO for every American.”

Let’s see, last night Larry King interviewed Bush hater Joy Behar (”I just don’t want another Republican in office anymore. Have you watched the ‘John Adams’ series? Isn’t it brilliant? When you see what John Adams was like and George Bush, it’s almost like Darwinism in reverse?”).

The night before, Larry King interviewed Jimmy Carter (”[Jeremiah Wright] preaches the type of sermon that I think appeals to many people”).

Boy, Democrats must be proud to see their best and brightest in front of the nation every night. Makes you wonder who they’ll put forward at their summer convention … Sean Penn? Barbra Streisand?

That’s not a serious party. That’s a lounge act.

Simon Says … Flip Flop?

Posted by John Pegway | Posted in Hollywood | Posted on 29-02-2008


If you base fictional politicians on real-life politicians, are you allowed to flip-flop on the issues — just like the real guys do?

Apparently so if you’re David Simon, creator of the mega HBO hit “The Wire.”

Consider today’s Yeas & Nays item on Simon:

Just in case there was any doubt where David Simon got all those searing storylines about big-city politics, “The Wire” creator left no doubt at a Q&A on Wednesday night at the National Cable and Telecommunications Association headquarters.

Simon made clear that when fictitious Baltimore Mayor Tommy Carcetti cooked the crime numbers to get elected, it was rooted in what he said was former real-life Mayor Martin O’Malley massaging his own crime stats in preparation for his run at the Maryland governor’s mansion.

“That was all O’Malley,” Simon told the VIP crowd, which had just gotten a sneak peek at the series’ penultimate episode.

Now, consider Simon’s November 2006 interview with Campus Progress:

How literally should we take parallels between current Baltimore Mayor Martin O’Malley and Tommy Carcetti [the white mayoral candidate in The Wire]?

It’s not O’Malley. He was one of several inspirations, but [story editor] Bill Zorzi has covered politicians in Annapolis and Baltimore for his whole career. We were stealing stuff from guys whose names you wouldn’t even know.

In other words, Simon was against O’Malley before he was for him.

Someone Wake Jack Nicholson

Posted by John Pegway | Posted in 2008 campaign, Hollywood | Posted on 31-01-2008


I’m watching Hillary Clinton debate Barack Obama from the Kodak Theater, where they give out the Academy Awards.

That explains why the program is dragging — they’re only up to Best Supporting Actress.  I’m reminded of Johnny Carson hosting the 1979 Oscars: “Welcome to the Academy Awards, a glittering two hours of entertainment, spread out over four hours.”

I’m just hoping things liven up when Billy Crystal does a song-and-dance routine to explain how delegates are selected.

UPDATE:  Nice touch.  I swear I just heard Hillary Clinton say, “You like me.  You really like me!”

Lindsay Lohan’s Debt To Political Society

Posted by John Pegway | Posted in Al Gore, celebrity babble, Hillary Clinton, Hollywood, Iraq | Posted on 29-07-2007


What punishment does Lindsay Lohan deserve?

You might argue she should get off easy.  After all, when Lohan was arrested for investigation of misdemeanor driving under the influence and with a suspended license, and felony cocaine possession, perhaps she wasn’t hurting anyone but herself.  A victimless crime.

But in reality she hurt a great many people.  For starters, our soldiers in Iraq.

Last year, Lohan reportedly told Elle magazine:  “I’ve been trying to go to Iraq with Hillary Clinton for so long.  Hillary was trying to work it out, but it seemed too dangerous.”

Iraq’s too dangerous for whom – Lohan?  The way she drives, nothing’s too dangerous.  For Hillary?   Nah.  Perish the thought.  Heck, Hillary debates Kucinich.  You don’t think that takes guts?

Lohan told Elle: “I wanted to do what Marilyn Monroe did (during the Korean War), when she went and just set up a stage and did a concert for the troops all by herself. It’s so amazing seeing that one woman just going somewhere, this beautiful sex kitten, who’s basically a pinup, which is what I’ve always aspired to be.”

Hoo-ah!  Beautiful sex kittens – and presumably we’re still talking about Lohan , not Hillary – are just what our soldiers need right now.  That and body armor.  But they really need Lohan, that fearless sex kitten.  “I’m not afraid of going,” she told Elle. “My security guard is going to take me to a gun range when I get back to L.A., and I’m going to start taking shooting lessons.”

She would have been better off taking driving lessons, not shooting lessons.  But it’s a little too late for that kind of guidance, eh?  Alas, entertaining Iraq is now a dream deferred, if not forever dashed.  Lohan could have been for our Iraq troops what Stallone was for Vietnam vets and Schwarzenegger was for cyborgs.

Assuming Lohan does go to jail, depriving America of her talent for any period of time is a hardship that hits the political world worst of all.

Promoting her work in “Bobby” –  the politically-charged movie centering on Robert Kennedy’s assassination – Lohan said, according to the BBC, “I feel I have always been somewhat politically engaged.  I strongly encourage people of my age and generation to have a say and to vote, and to involve themselves in what’s going on in the world, because they are living in it.”

Living in it, indeed.  But Lohan was being far too modest.  She did more than just get an entire generation to vote.  She possess a unique wisdom – the wisdom of sending e-mails.  The kind which mention Al Gore.

And what better way to engage the world politically than invoke the almighty Al Gore.

In December, Slate ran what it claimed is an e-mail Lohan sent to 18 people.  The e-mail says, among other things (and we won’t embarrass Ms. Lohan further by including the obvious [sic’s]):

“I am willing to release a politically/morally correct, fully adequite letter to the press if any of you are willing to help. … I have such an impact on our younger generations, as well as generations older than me.  Which we all know and can obviously see.  People are just mean. …I am willing to do anything I need to get my life the way it should be and the way I work for it to be. … Al Gore will help me came up to me last night and said he would be very happy to have a conversation with me.  If he is willing to help me.  Let’s find out.  Hilary Clinton, Bill Clinton … would be willing, if we just ask.  If we just ASK.”

That ending, by the way, is sensational dramatic flair.  If … we … just … ASK.  Very Captain Kirk.  Works will with, Help me Obi Wan Al Gore, you’re my only hope.  And with Gore’s extended family, R2D2 and C3PO.

After that note appeared, a Gore representative told Access Hollywood: “I can confirm for you that Mr. Gore has only met Ms. Lohan once, very briefly, at the GQ Men of the Year dinner last week. There were hundreds of other guests.”

Of course, just because they’ve met just once doesn’t mean they still can’t love/hate each other.  Earlier last year, Gore told Jay Leno, “I’m in this HUGE feud with Lindsay Lohan.”

So throw the book at Lindsay Lohan.   She’s betraying America’s soldiers.  She’s abandoning a generation aspiring greatness and ballot access.  And she’s playing hard to get with Al Gore.

Is that any way for a sex kitten to act?

How Much Is An Oscar Worth To A Politician?

Posted by Victoria Reynolds | Posted in 2008 campaign, Al Gore, global warming, Hollywood, Oh! Zone!, Presidential Election | Posted on 27-02-2007


Apparently, not much.  New Media Strategies looked at Web 2.0 buzz surrounding Al Gore’s Academy Award win for best documentary, on global warming.

As of 3 p.m. Monday, ten video clips of Al Gore at the Oscars had been uploaded to YouTube.  But none of them had gone viral, meaning no one was e-mailing them around, or received any traction online.  A total of only 384 views for all 10 clips.

Gore’s online social networking numbers are a bit a bit better, but not by much.  Comparing the numbers for the “Draft Gore” MySpace page and the five largest Gore Facebook groups before the Oscars (1 p.m. Saturday) and after (3 p.m. Monday), we found a bump of 8%.  That’s respectable, but the hard numbers are tiny: friends/members increased from 4,649 to 5,019, up 370.

With Web 2.0 dominating politics these days, that might not be enough to launch an Al Gore presidential campaign.  Oscars may mean something to the billion TV viewers, but for online activists, it’s less impressive.
