Great Questions in the Arts

Michael Moriarty, lunatic:
As a graduate of Dartmouth myself, I learned that in Soviet Russia the Politburo is actually a modern version of an old-fashioned oligarchy.

Since then, and because of performing repeatedly in the creations of Bertolt Brecht, I’ve discovered that a Politburo is the traditionally Soviet word for a Communist Cosa Nostra.

However, the American Politburo, that ruling elite which is now led by Godfather Obama, instead of admiring Stalin, as you would expect?

They all look up to Mao Zedong.

Mao has ultimately become the greatest inspiration for the American Progressive Movement.

Mao is The Godfather of all Godfathers!

Surely Hollywood and its tortured geniuses would have eventually cast Marlon Brando as Mao, don’t you think?

I constantly fail to understand how such stupid people end up with degrees from supposedly prestigious schools. Makes you wonder how much better they really are.

"Mao the Knife" is the best part of the Threeyenny Opera.

I get the impression that the author was happier when the chalk circle was entirely caucasian.

You gentlemen who think you have a mission

MM screwed up what could have a 19 or 20 yr. gig on "L&O: The Original Series" by being a nutjob.

One can only assume the bitterness has resulted in his doubling down on the crazy.

Substance McGravitas said...

Yeah, it's pretty plain he's just out of his mind and not actually evil.

He was good on the show. Hope he gets over it all.

M. Bouffant said...

Per Simba, perhaps we need a sort of psychological literacy test for admission to prestigious schools.

Smut Clyde said...

Would it not be easier
In that case for the government
To dissolve the people

I could'a been a contenda. You bitch. I don't have Chinese characters on my Mac. Isn't instant messaging great?

MagicBee said...

Where's the breathalyser on the computer? I've looked . Does it have a compatible port?

mikey said...

Yep, turns out that big phone-jack lookin mofo on the back is the wine port.

Any more tech questions?

We'll be answering all comers until Noon Bangalore time...

I suppose this is all based on Obama eating Chinese food in 1985 or somethin' definitive like that. Rather than just something that escaped from Moriarty's trousers!!!
