Well why don't you just piddle on them and force them into a Promise Keeper weekend being lectured by Creationists on the way to the "Kill a Darkie- but not by abortion" rally, Jesus.

Spittle. Rage. Very, very, veeery bad "satire".

Oh, it's already happened. Nigel Andrews, the film critic for the FT, reamed Dark Knight on Thursday.

Andrews being the only critic who didn't ream Redacted, who thought it was incredible filmmaking that spoke "truth to power!", who interviewed DePalma and churned out the most sycophantic profile that would make Obama feel jealous that he didn't get the same treatment. And, why, just last week he criticized Standard Operating Procedure for, essentially, endeavoring to tell both sides of the Abu Ghraib scandal. The guy's a lefty whackjob. Given his track record, it didn't surprise me one bit that he didn't like Dark Knight.

Spencer Ackerman had an interesting article comparing Batman to Dick Cheney
