Wow, just -- wow. I'm marking today's date on my calendar and holding on to this so that it can be passed down to future generations.
Behold, what may be the single dumbest thing ever written:
"There seems to me no question that the Batman film "The Dark Knight," currently breaking every box office record in history, is at some level a paean of praise to the fortitude and moral courage that has been shown by George W. Bush in this time of terror and war. Like W, Batman is vilified and despised for confronting terrorists in the only terms they understand. Like W, Batman sometimes has to push the boundaries of civil rights to deal with an emergency, certain that he will re-establish those boundaries when the emergency is past."
By the way, this isn't a joke (or the Joker); the guy who wrote this is dead serious. I swear I'd try to come up with a more substantial reponse to his piece, but honestly, where to even begin?
