Assistant To the Quote of the Day
"When a film comes along and paints liberals as sinister cigar smoking fat cats, feasting on opulent dinners and in all ways acting like Libertarian corporatists until the revelation that their dirty backroom politics are for the good of 'the people' and 'the nation' and they won’t seemingly be getting much real gain out of it at all... I have to wonder: what the fuck were they thinking? Who seriously believes this shit? The only people who think that there really are a group of people out there who are altruistically evil are only going to see this if their meds don’t knock them out too early and the home their kids abandoned them in has a shuttle service... If you find a copy of this sitting around anywhere, do yourself a favor: set it on fire."
-- From Massawyrm's review of Atlas Shrugged at Ain't It Cool News
Incidentally, while it didn't exactly bomb, the movie did less-than-stellar numbers at the box office over the weekend. Guess its audience had "gone Galt."
