Medved the Hacktastical Hackmeister

R-Far fondly remembers Michael Medved's loving defense of Mel Gibson after his anti-Semitic tirade, and wonders "what could Mel say that would drive Medved irrevocably from his side? Hmm..."
Mr. Gibson’s antiwar remarks immediately raised a red flag for conservative fans of his "The Passion of the Christ."
In a phone interview today, the conservative radio talk show host and columnist Michael Medved said: "If these antiwar comments are the beginning of an ill-considered, organized campaign to get back into the good graces of the Hollywood establishment that gave him the Oscar for 'Braveheart,' so he can show he’s not different from them and march arm-in-arm with Sean Penn and Susan Sarandon, there will be a great deal of disgust from the people who have enjoyed Mel's movies in the past."
For those of you keeping score at home: Booze-fueled anti-Semitic rantings = not offensive to conservative Christian sensibilities. Not supporting the Iraq war = offensive to conservative Christian sensibilities.

Go now in peace.
