A Modest Proposal to Revive The Oscars

The ratings for the Oscars were down again. I don't know if they've figured out what the reason is yet, but I would be surprised that one of them isn't the narcissistic of winners to use their moment on stage to pontificate to the world. It's not just the Oscars, it's all the awards shows, these idiots just can't help themselves

When Al Gore did it he declared to a packed house of limousine liberals, who live their lives to the absolute height of excess, that we should all do our part to reduce our carbon footprint. I drive a Toyota Corolla, I should be telling Gore what HE needs to do...if only he could hear me over the engine on his private jet, or from the gates of his energy guzzling mansions.

All those hypocrites have to do is adopt a middle class lifestyle....I'm sure they'd rather move to Hell.

Then we have this year, with these make-believe bubble dwellers chiming in on what's happening in Wisconsin and extolling the "woes" of public employee unions...

At the Academy Awards tonight, best cinematography winner Wally Pfister made a point during his acceptance speech of thanking his union crew on “Inception.”....

“I think that what is going on in Wisconsin is kind of madness right now,” Pfister says. “I have been a union member for 30 years and what the union has given to me is security for my family....”

From The Note

Taxpayers don't pay for your private sector union Mister Pfister (of course the "P" is silent). Maybe you should learn the difference between your union and the public sector before spouting off like you get your news from a Magic 8 Ball.

Hollywood has forgotten that the world tunes in to the Oscars for pomp and circumstance....not pompous circumstance. Thats why I don't just choose to not watch, I actually despise the entire event.

If they want to bring people like me into the fold I have a modest proposal...try some honest marketing, so we all know what we're actually getting....it might actually work.
