Medved's Worst Case Scenario Gets a Treatment

In his comment below, Steve M. pointed out that Medved had an expanded version of the little dance number he did on Zahn's show last night. From the extended version on the relative obscurity of his Clown Hall blog we get this window into the thinking of Mel Gibson's champion:

"The worst part of this latest controversy is that Gibson's revolting statements give people like Abe Foxman of the Anti-Defamation League a juicy, retroactive excuse to say "I told you so" --- long after the benign and warm-hearted worldwide reaction to the movie had utterly undermined all the smug denunciations claiming that this wildly popular entertainment would foment implacable hate."

That's the worst thing about it, Mikey? Not that your good friend, the now multi-multi millionaire Mel with a mega-mega phone has accused Jews of starting every war in history? I must not be up on the latest lingo in movie town because when I read that "The Eternal Jew" and the "Protocols" were the first things that came to mind. But you know Mel better than I do. Considering how much he adores carnage, as evidenced in the snuff-porn quality scenes of it in his movies, maybe he only meant to say it in the nicest possible way.

"Aside from obvious questions about who appointed Foxman as the ultimate judge of Gibson's damnation and possible redemption, doesn't it seem patently unfair to describe a statement that includes the words "I disgraced myself" as "unremorseful."? Even worse, Foxman concludes the official ADL statement with the words: "We would hope that Hollywood now would realize the bigot in their midst and that they will distance themselves from the anti-Semite."

We don't have to ask that question as to who appointed you to be his champion do we, Mikey. Are you afraid that if your good friend Mel Gibson goes down for this one after you tied yourself to him that you'll never eat lunch in Hollywood again? I take back what I said about you being like the night clerk at a roach motel, you're more like the janitor.

That's a great story. Waiting for more. film editing schools
