My post debate hangover: the Chris Wallace edition

I’m really trying to figure out why everyone was saying Chris Wallace did the best job in this year’s debates. Other than trotting out every false premise Fox News question he could come up with, he blatantly tried to help the GOP’s foot-in-mouth patient pull his head out of his ass a couple of times, especially when he practically begged the man with the hands of the Seven Dwarfs to back away from saying he wouldn’t honor the results of the election.

But the part pissed me off to no end was this:

In the nuclear section after the 6:20 mark, the crimson doofus said he never said there should be more nuclear weapons in Asia. But back in April, he said this:

Look! After the nine minute mark the guy with the muppet on his head is saying the words he says he didn’t say. Who are you going to believe? Your lying eyes or his lying mouth?

And Chris Wallace doesn’t just stop the debate right there and say: “Fuck, dude. You said to my face and to the faces of millions of Fox mouth breathers that you supported giving nukes to the Japanese! Cut the shit, already!”

Wallace was a Pump Truppet throughout. The basis of his questions were false, and he let God’s gift to himself spew mendacious babble without consequence.

This happened 71 years ago today

On Aug. 6, 1945, 140,000 people were killed when the atomic bomb was dropped on Hiroshima, Japan.

Meanwhile, the Republican party has nominated a rust-colored ball of gas posing as a human who wonders why we build nuclear weapons if we’re not going to use them:

This coming election means something, folks. Take it seriously.

Blackface isn’t the only problem in the movies

I loved “Ghost in the Shell,” and it is a very Japanese movie. I realize that Scarlett Johansson is currently the big name female action movie star, and I really liked “Lucy,” even though it was destroyed by the critics. But I’m not sure about the casting here.

The answer, though, is that the Japanese should have made a live-action “Ghost in the Shell.” I would have gone to that, subtitles and all. Then Hollywood could do whatever it wanted with the American remake.

Like it did with “The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo”:

Sweden

U.S.

Or with “Let the Right One¬†In”:

Sweden:

U.S.:

Or if you want to go back in time, “The Seven Samurai’:

Japan:

U.S.:

And then, in America, we’ll remake the remake:

Yeah, I didn’t see the last one coming either.
