…and ask for FA readers’ forgiveness.
I thought about whether or not I should come clean with this. After some soul-searching and hand-wringing, I decided that it is best that I clear my conscience. If I didn’t, I don’t see how I could ever blog here again without feeling shame for keeping a dirty little secret.
In a moment of weakness I slapped down $10 bucks and saw “Avatar”.
Forgive me fellow conservatives, for I have sinned.
My impressions of the colossal-budget movie? If you’re a tree-hugging Howard-Zinn-raised liberal, you’ll love it. If you’re a pro-war-on-terror-American-exceptionalism-muscular-foreign-policy-believing conservative, you’ll love it and feel dirty for doing so. But hey! All you have to do is suspend reality and just lose yourself in the fantasy that is the liberal worldview.
The movie’s impressive in scope and special effects, but the storyline’s just cliché-predictable….like watching Dances with Wolves in Space meets every Hollywood anti-(Iraq)war movie in the last 8 years.
Thanks James Cameron, for the overt political messages! [/sarcasm]
A former fetus, the “wordsmith from nantucket” was born in Phoenix, Arizona in 1968. Adopted at birth, wordsmith grew up a military brat. He achieved his B.A. in English from the University of California, Los Angeles (graduating in the top 97% of his class), where he also competed rings for the UCLA mens gymnastics team. The events of 9/11 woke him from his political slumber and malaise. Currently a personal trainer and gymnastics coach.
The wordsmith has never been to Nantucket.
