And the Moral Relativism of the Story Is...
A slightly edited version of the Polanski piece from last night has been on the front page -- as well as the main entertainment page -- of the Huffington Post all day.
Feel free to peruse the comment section and marvel at some of the faux-intellectual self-satisfaction that's pretty much the hallmark of a good portion of the HuffPo peanut gallery.
I'd repost some of the more entertaining contributions here, but I'm just way too fucking tired. Suffice it to say, while a lot of conservatives these days wear their willful ignorance proudly on their sleeves, the same number of liberals just can't help reveling in the ability to over-think even the most unambiguous subject -- especially if they've recently watched an indie documentary on it.
On the plus side, it's fun knowing that there's an unrelated piece by Bernard-Henri Lévy also up at HuffPo right now.
