  1. I just found it a tad rich to see a tweet pointing the finger at Castro, however deservedly, while at the same time implying that the Vietnam War and the inconceivable horrors visited upon the people of SE Asia by the USA during that conflict were a justifiable act of self-defense against "Viet Cong aggression".

     

    It put me in mind of something Jesus apparently said:

  2. Quote

    I was reading last night about the fall of France in the summer of 1940, and the general, Reynaud, calls up Churchill and says, ‘It’s over.’ And Churchill says ‘How can it be? You’ve got the greatest army in Europe. How can it be over?’ He said, ‘It’s over.’

    I don't think Matthews is comparing Sanders to Hitler, he's referring to the fact that many thought the battle for France had just begun--a reasonable assumption, given the course of WWI--when Reynaud knew it was over once his armies and it's defenses were bypassed.

     

    Presumably he thinks the race for the nomination is over, despite only three states having been determined.

     

    An awfully arcane reference, but good news for any Sanders supporter (if you place any stock in Matthews' opinion, of course).

    I think 3 out of 10 is a bit generous, much like Hateful 8 and Django if it hadn't been made by Tarantino it would get absolutely panned.

     

    Massive Emperors Clothes Syndrome going on with what he makes now.

    Brilliant film-maker no doubt. But I agree with you on all three.

     

    "Inglourious Basterds" was great, then he seemed to fall off the cliff.
