I can't believe this waste is 2.5 hours. That's just unbelievable.
Hey, not bad. Thanks.
Man, beyond bummed.
Well, here's the deal. You're engaging in an exercise in futility by challenging the Post. Modern-day "conservatism" is not actually conservatism. Modern-day "conservatives" -- the Hannitys, the Limbaughs, the Malkins, the tea-baggers, the empty-noise makers you see on the telly, too many of the Republicans in Congress, and yes, the New York Post in general -- care about two things: warm and fuzzy feelings of "safe America"; power. They do not want small government; they want big government under their control. They do not want to agree with the ACLU on anything; they want scorched-earth destruction if it means the Other Party gains power. They're crybabies.
Alas, you have to scour the Internet for actual small-government journalists. Generally, they aren't employed by powerful media outlets. They write blogs or edit magazines that the average American doesn't read.
FWIW I've never seen Armond White compliment any film critic other than Armond White, Pauline Kael, and Andrew Sarris.
That said, I like White — not always his weekly writings b/c they're so often riddled with sentences that make little sense and lack clarity, which makes me think his editors, if they exist, are afraid of him — and love his mission. His essays for Criterion DVDs are especially sharp and forceful.
