The pro-liberal media that is going into withdrawal pains because they no longer have President George W. Bush to kick around, have gone to warp-speed in their efforts to heap praise on the new movie "Crazy Heart." It's gone beyond the level of effusive enthusiasm and is rapidly approaching the level of promobabble. Good Christians, who are familiar with the Biblical concept of parables, may wish to assess it as a subtle example of Bush-bashing, before they rush out to see this new cultural phenomenon, which is being touted as a "sure thing" for getting actor Jeff Bridges yet another Oscar nomination. "Crazy Heart" tells the story of a drunk from Texas who makes a mess of everything he touches.
Where have the only two Presidents to lose a war resided?
Do you have to have Roger Whatzizname explain the symbolism of this film or are most red-blooded patriotic Americans smart enough to spot Bush-bashing when intellectual liberals start to shove it down their throats?
So here we have some clever Hollywood types "entertaining" us with the saga of a Texan who's Midas touch turns everything into an untouchable mess. (Ya better not step in it, cause it must be mud!, eh?) Gees, who could that be?
Liberal "intellectuals" are going to repeat over and over the talking point about Jeff Bridges' effort is a leading contender for this year's "Best Actor Oscar" and thus lure fans of country music into the non-stop example of stealth Bush-bashing.
In the film, Tommy Sweet (Colin Farrell) sends some sweet (if it looks like symbolism, tastes like symbolism, then it must be symbolism!) deals to Bad Blake (Jeff Bridges) his former musical mentor. Do you think they should have filmed that segment at Enron Headquarters to underscore the point they were attempting to make?
Texas means good bidness, right? You don't believe it, just ask Jet Rink, J. R. (did those initials stand for Jet Rink?) Ewing. Mebby you could ask the Lone (Texas) Ranger where he had his silver mine.
Didn't O. Henry, the famous writer, start a magazine in Texas and call it Rolling Stone? (Not to be confused with a later effort with the same name started in San Francisco in the Sixties?)
