I need some reeeeeh…..eeeehhhh…..est.
I’ve seen people say that they couldn’t make Blazing Saddles today and others argue and say it could.
That pretty much sidesteps the real issues.
First, nobody would make it, all the people who make offensive movies only offend Christians and conservatives, they don’t have any desire to upset any leftist apple carts.
And of course, the real issue.
You can’t even show it these days.
IFC shows it uncut, that’s it. Everybody else butchers it. What makes me laugh is that AMC used to edit out the fart/campfire scene, but now they’ve put it back in and take out all the “racist” stuff, that’s not racist but exactly the opposite.
So the only scenes that could be made are the fart scene and the above one.
Which ain’t all bad. Madelaine Kahn is all about teh awesome.
I’ve seen people linking that poll to show Hillary! is kicking sloe-Joe’s ass, but check this out.
U.S. Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky gets 47 percent to Clinton’s 43 percent;
Clinton is at 44 percent with 43 percent for U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas;
U.S. Rep. Paul Ryan of Wisconsin leads her 48 – 43 percent.
Cruz, Rand Paul and Paul Ryan are always attacked by Minitrue as far-right idealogues who want to kill Teh Children, with establishment GOPers attacking the first two and yet, Paul and Ryan are beating Hillary! and Ted Cruz is well within the margin of error.
Not as often as years ago, but some days America makes me proud.
