Off to that screening (which I’m late for) — back around 3 pm. In the meantime, please review this astounding summary of right-wing talkshow and blogger reactions to WALL*E. Consider this Glenn Beck quote in particular: “I can’t wait to teach my kids how we’ve destroyed the Earth. I can’t wait. You know if your kid has ever come home and said, ‘Dad, how come we use so much styrofoam,’ oh, this is the movie for you.”
The denial levels in this guy are menacing. There are guys like Beck out there right now — millions of them — waving away the reality and chuckling to themselves and passing their bullshit along to their kids and keeping the ignorance levels high. This is the way the world is going to end.
