Pot? Kettle

OK, so Mel Gibson had one (or more) too many and got busted for drunk driving. So far, not too bad. Then, not being in full control of himself, he began cussing out the arresting officer. Bad, but understandable. The he did The Big One. He allegedly made what could easily be deemed "anti-semitic" remarks. Oops! Red card on that play.

Now, the usual assortment of professional victims are calling for his head on a platter. As though expressing anti-semitic sentiments were The Worst Crime Ever.

The real kicker here is that some in the Hollyweird crowd are already speculating about whether Mel's career might be over. Well, seeing as how there are more anti-semites per acre in Hollyweird than almost anywhere else (including Tehran), this comes off as... shall we say "disingenuous"? Or would "hypocritical" be a better word?

I just read your Fear and Loathing article, and I disagree. The religous right doesnt oppose gay-marriage because they hate homosexuals, although im sure there are some out there who do. They do it because they never grasped the whole separation of church and state concept. And please dont respond with some robotic 'institution of marriage' response. If brittany spears can get married for 5 minutes in vegas and the institution is okay, but 2 loving people want to get married, and the institution is shot becuase they happen to both be women, then perhaps the institution isnt worth protecting.

MDS, the double-standard (read that hypocrisy) of the leftist is that Mel can't fire off a racist/antisemitic remark while hammered, but their politicians Dem-selves spew the same jingoism before the media - ir-Rev. Jessie HIGHJACK-son's infamous "Hymie Town" blast at New York, for example - and nobody calls them on it/they downplay it.

Excellent point about Jack-a$$-son. This just got a tad more interesting with Andy Young's foot-in-mouth episode.
