Just who was upset that "Waiting for Superman" was snubbed by the Oscar academy this year?
Let's see - the right-wing Washington Times, the right-wing National Review Online, and the right-wing Andrew Breitbart site Big Hollywood are all upset that "Waiting for Superman" won't be flying home this year with an Oscar statuette.
You know, when I think about three places where I can see people who care a lot about the needs of inner city people and poor people, it's at the Washington Times, at theNational Review Online and at Andrew Breitbart's site.
Oh, no - wait. That's not right.
Actually, they don't give a shit about that at all.
They care about union-busting (indeed, the hack at the Breitbart site called teachers unions one of the most evil organizations on the planet.)
But now that "Superman" got hit over the head with some Oscar kryptonite, there will be no opportunity to use the Oscars to bash teachers unions and promote a union-free future for public education.
Sad Washington Times.
Sad Andrew Breitbart.
No word yet on whether hedge fund criminal/education reformer Whitney Tilson has been saddened by this news.
But given that he claims to have started his education "reform" career after watching the Davis Guggenheim-directed "An Inconvenient Truth," I can't imagine he will be too happy.
Oh, well - there will always be some pensions for Whitney to steal and maybe even some old, poor people for him to throw out onto the sidewalk sans Medicaid.
That's the kind of stuff that Whitney likes.
Incidentally, that's the kind of stuff they like at the Washington Times, at NRO and at Andrew Breitbart's site too.
Just how did Whitney get to call himself a "Democrat" when he so clearly fits in with the right-wingers?
Dunno, but I guess you could ask the same thing about the corporate putz in the White House too.
