Oliver Stone was on Bill Maher’s HBO show over the weekend, and between discussing his experiences in Vietnam and as a Yale classmate of both George W. Bush and John Kerry, he of course discussed his new movie W. He does a great job of explaining that his film will be more than the same stupid chain emails and Bushism of the day calendars we’ve been passing around for the last 8 years.
“You don’t have to go out of your way… You can make fun of Bush and he’s a parody, but look at the guy, you don’t have to make it up. The guy speaks for himself. People think they know George Bush but they don’t. The guy’s a bit like the Wizard of Oz.”
Great speech right? But then right afterwards I jumped on the internet to look at amputee porn what did I see? A brand new banner ad for W:
Way to go, Ollie. “We don’t need to make fun of Bush, we’ll just take a picture of him on the shitter!” Thank God I have people like Ollie to properly articulate my nuanced point of view. Oh, and by the way, any native English speaker who goes out of his way to pronounce “déjà vu” with properly accented French hasn’t gotten has ass kicked nearly enough. (3:15 mark of the video – does anyone know how to make a loop of that?)
