I didn’t watch the Oscars last night, butt I hear it was a night of politically correct historic firsts: Matthew McConaughey won Best Actor for his portrayal of a gay rodeo rider in Dallas Buyers Club, Lupita Nyong'o won Best Supporting Actress for her role in 12 Years a Slave, Jared Leto won Best Supporting Actor for his role as a transgendered sidekick in Dallas Buyers Club, Alfonso Cuarón won as the first Mexican Best Director for Gravity, Steve McQueen’s 12 Years a Slave won as the first movie from a black director to win Best Picture…and Big Guy’s “Foreign Policy” won a special award in the Best Fantasy category:
FOR FIVE YEARS, President Obama has led a foreign policy based more on how he thinks the world should operate than on reality. It was a world in which “the tide of war is receding” and the United States could, without much risk, radically reduce the size of its armed forces.
Other leaders, in this vision, would behave rationally and in the interest of their people and the world. Invasions, brute force, great-power games and shifting alliances — these were things of the past. Secretary of State John F. Kerry displayed this mindset on ABC’s “This Week” Sunday when he said, of Russia’s invasion of neighboring Ukraine, “It’s a 19th century act in the 21st century.”
Wow! And Barry’s award was presented by the much vaunted Washington Post!
Indeed, the 1980’s want their leader back too.
Apparently the WaPo’s biggest concern is that other leaders like Vladimir Putin, Xi Jinping and Bashar al-Assad are not interested in taking roles in Barry’s fantasy.
Ah well, thank goodness there’s always Hollywood to divert our attention from these distressing global spectacles with glitter, glam and political correctness – something else Pootie has no use for.
So here, a few other candidates for “fantasy of the year” poster children from last night’s Oscars. In descending order of awfulness, several starlets who also want the 80’s back:
Is Amerika a great country, or what? Because in Amerika anybody can live the fantasy they entertain in their head…as long as they never look in a mirror.
