Quote of the Day II

We can argue about such things. But such arguments are a privilege -- and an obligation -- of free people. We get to decide where the public good takes precedence over the private. We get to debate the trade-offs between order and liberty, virtue and freedom. Us. Not them.

This is particularly true when the "them" in question is a crapulent pajama-wearing psychopathic dictator who starves his own people while cramming caviar down his gullet. When the Pillsbury Doughboy from Hell tries to tell us what kind of movies we can make or see, the only honorable response is "Go f**k yourself." -- Jonah Golberg [subscribe]

I can go "all-in" defending our rights to watch a terrible movie, but I do not want to look foolish when this is all exposed as a product of the SONY Pictures' PR Department.

North Korea Quote of the Day Posted by John Kranz at December 19, 2014 6:34 PM

I saw this morning that a patriot group is planning on airdropping thousands of DVDs of "The Interview" into North Korea as a counteraction. I don't know if they realize their plan won't work; viewing a DVD requires electricity.

It seems to me North Korean paranoia has just raised the bar. Your national defense is pretty shaky if you feel threatened by a Seth Rogen movie.

I fear they'll try to eat them, Keith.
