There you have it folks, my best guess.
Update: Rock just opened up the ceremonies with an anti-Bush tirade. I have turned off the Oscars and will read about it in tomorrow's paper.
But did you seriously turn off the Oscars and not watch because of Rock's "anti-Bush tirade"?? You're kidding, right?
If I was as thin-skinned about things like that when Clinton was president I would have never watched TV. They were constantly taking shots at Clinton during these award shows in the '90s - not to mention the late-night comics like Jay Leno who to this day still bashes Clinton more than Bush.
One final comment: I don't really watch them, but shows like SNL, the Daily Show and Leno are the right places for such statements. We expect such things from them and if I do watch I don't turn the channel because of derogatory comments about somebody I admire. I certainly get my fill when I do watch the Daily Show or SNL, but like I said, we expect that kind of thing when we watch those shows.
