ALICE [Falling]: How curious. I never realized that rabbit holes were so dark . . . and so long . . . and so empty. I believe I have been falling for five minutes, and I still can't see the bottom!
Meanwhile, further down the rabbit hole:
After opening to tepid reviews in this country, the White House announced Friday that Big Guy was cancelling a fund-raiser in Hollywood in order to launch an emergency media blitz to sell his new movie – coming soon to a theatre in Syria. That’s probably just as well, as his Hollywood anti-war fans and financiers are feeling a bit betrayed by BHO’s plans for missile strikes on Syria. They voted for him because he was so adamantly, assuredly anti-war; and now he won’t even come to explain his change of heart to them?
ALICE: [Angrily] Why, how impolite of him. I asked him a civil question, and he pretended not to hear me. That's not at all nice. [Calling after him] I say, Mr. White Rabbit, where are you going? Hmmm. He won't answer me. And I do so want to know what he is late for.
Tee time, of course!
I suppose the glitterati are concerned that a misguided-missile strike could spark retaliation by Iran which would then give Israel an excuse to respond in kind by taking out Iran’s nukes, hence setting the wheels of WWIII in motion. And all over some silly red line that Big Guy didn’t even draw himself – somebody else made that happen.
Don’t expect to hear any condemnation coming from his A-list financial backers though, as they’re committed to remaining noncommittal, even though they’re privately really, really ticked off. Unfortunately they find themselves hoisted by their own PC petards; they don’t feel as though they can say anything without being accused by Chrissy Matthews of being a racist, according to Ed Asner:
"A lot of people don't want to feel anti-black by being opposed to Obama," he said.
And thus, a truth inadvertently trickled out: “feeling” something is more important than “being” something in Hollywood. That’s why voting for BHO assuaged their white guilt – it just“felt” like the right thing to do. Nor do any of the supremely talented ones wish to shoulder that white man’s burden again, now that they’ve so efficaciously passed it on exclusively to the bitter clingers. So they stand silent in the face of their Supreme Commander of Color’s annihilation of their deeply held belief that pacifism is the only thing that will save the world. This is a particularly painful dilemma because not only has their messiah betrayed them, butt he’s openly mocking the only principle they’ve ever held. Such cognizant dissonance has not been experienced in Tinsel Town since the Roman Polanski incident. I predict a steep increase in Prosac, Zoloft, Paxil, Valium and Xanax sales, so invest accordingly.
Anyway, everyone just hang in here. The wizards are busy mixing up an elixir that will make everything better again.
It was all very well to say `Drink me,' but the wise little Alice was not going to do that in a hurry. `No, I'll look first,' she said, `and see whether it's marked "poison" or not'; for she had read several nice little histories about children who had got burnt, and eaten up by wild beasts and other unpleasant things, all because they would not remember the simple rules their friends had taught them: such as, that a red-hot poker will burn you if you hold it too long; and that if you cut your finger very deeply with a knife, it usually bleeds; and she had never forgotten that, if you drink much from a bottle marked `poison,' it is almost certain to disagree with you, sooner or later.
And unless it is clearly marked “poison” I suspect most people will swallow it.
Especially since it will taste much more like Kool-Aid than unsweetened tea.
However, this bottle was not marked `poison,' so Alice ventured to taste it, and finding it very nice, (it had, in fact, a sort of mixed flavour of cherry-tart, custard, pine-apple, roast turkey, toffee, and hot buttered toast,) she very soon finished it off.
Warning: political correctness is another form of poison gas. Don’t drink the Kool-Aid.
