So I see that several wingnut blogs are now comparing the scene Saturday night in the House after the vote, when the Democrats were cheering Pelosi, to this scene:
This is funny for all the usual reasons, but doubly so because some of us can remember past week. If you will remember, when this movie came out, the same species of wingnut was literally FREAKING out about the Star Wars film being anti-Bush. Here is deep thinker and nepotism beneficiary J-Pod:
The whole confusion is reminiscent of the last Matrix movie, which is all about a noble truce between our heroes and the computers that have been using all of humanity as batteries. So that a few people could survive to have orgies in the underground city of Zion, billions of people had to remain in the Matrix. Inadvertently, both Lucas and the Wachowski brothers (who wrote and directed the Matrix movies) reveal with their brainless anti-Bushism the essential cowardly vapidity of pacifism.
At any rate, we really need to undertake a project like the lexicon- we can call it Wingnut Movie References, and we can chronicle all their idiotic references to movies. I remember a couple of weeks ago someone at Red State was comparing something to Obi Wan being struck down, and I know these guys are fond of 300 and LOTR references.
