More proof positive that Steven Spielberg doesn’t get what’s going on out there, and lives in a rich-older-liberal-guy realm that allows for only brief glimpses and glancing comprehensions about the political and cultural truth of things.
Spielberg’s powers of perception about the shape of shifting sands are obviously dwindling, which means, of course, that Indiana Jones IV won’t be as good as Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade, much less Raiders of the Lost Ark, because if you’re missing stuff in one arena, you’re almost certainly missing stuff in other realms. You’re either sharp all around the track or you’re not.
Hilary is a shrewd, tough, savvy politician — I respect her as far as it goes — but she is Old News, she is the ’60s and the ’90s, and she will certainly bring the Democrats down to defeat in November 2008. Rudy Giuliani, if he’s nominated, will most likely beat her, and Fred Thompson, who will probably be the Republican nominee (he essentially announced last night on Jay Leno) will absolutely whip her ass.
