Drudge: Chris Rock Shock (?)-- Only Gays Watch the Oscars

This is of course ridiculous. Women and effeminate heterosexual men watch the Oscars, too.

A tempest in a teapot, of course, but I guess we'll soon be forced to discuss...

...the fact that the sometimes-ludicrous rules of "sensitivity" and "tolerance" don't really seem to apply to blacks. Damn, how I envy them that.

...and how silly it is that a lot of people are going to get all crazy over the fact that a comic said something, well, comical.

...and that, seriously, if you're watching the Oscars, and you're male, you're probably gay. Or at least "curious" and "open to possibilities." You're not definitely gay, of course, but, in legal terms, the burden of evidence has shifted to you.

At least Chris Rock has given me some reason to talk about the Oscars. Do I really care if Million Dollar Baby beats the Aviator, or if there's a Sideways sweep?

No, I don't. Maybe I'm just a phillistine, but I'm tired of hearing which films I haven't seen are going to win what award I don't care about.

PS: Don't ever say to me "Oscar loves a comeback story" or "Oscar loves Hollywood royalty," or I'll go all Jeff Gannon on your ass.
