DOWD FORETOLD

This stupid joke idea reads better now than when it was written. Hereís a segment of Annie Hall in which Alvyís lines have been replaced by comments about Maureen Dowd originally posted at Free Republic:

Scene: Lovers ANNIE and ALVY are in bed. ANNIE is propped up on one elbow, gazing adoringly at ALVY.

ANNIE: Alvy, let's never break up again. I don't wanna be apart.

ALVY: You are an exceptional liar. You betray the truth at every turn. You care not a whit about the facts of the matter. You blame entirely one side, while ignoring the crimes of the other. And you have lost much of the prestige that you formerly enjoyed.

I do declare you've improved all those scripts.

I laughed and laughed. What I really like is how kick-ass the Freeper combacks are to those gay-ass scripts. Whoohoo!

Especially the crushing put-down to that fisherman guy in jaws who's interminable monologue reminded me of the speech Dirk gave to his penis befor going on set in Boogie Nights.

Verdict: Awesome!

Hey, why not have Dowd herself rewrite Annie Hall?

Tim Blair comes out of the Freeper closet at last. I've never liked the place - not only are they rabid wingnuts, but they've also got the worst taste in music. Lynyrd Skynyrd, ugh.

Itís something Iíve always kept hidden, Bon.

Here's a sample of the high level of discourse over at Free Republic:

The palestinians are side elements in this. The problem is with the entire Muslim world.

I have to respectfully have to disagree with him on this. A civil war would not bring peace at all. Violence is part and parcel of their (Arabic) world. The children are taught in the Madrassas to hate. It is reinforced in their Mosques, schools, and media. The only thing that would work is total conquest of them and the forbidding of such teachings.

It would be more comparable to what the allies did in Nazi Germany to the Hitler youth. Even then, it would not ensure any peace.

Let the blood flow down the streets of Gaza City, Ramallah, Jenin, Hebron, and all the other Pali hellhole cities.

A significant percentage of Palestinians do not want peace with Israel; they want peace without an Israel.

I don't think they want peace at all, just for Israel to disappear. The only thing they hate more than Jews is other Arabs.

A highway to hell, indeed.

Let the arabs have the war they want. To the death.

It's an open forum, Bon.

Posted by: tim at June 11, 2003 at 01:25 AM

No it isn't. It's a circlejerk. Posts that express unwelcome points of view are regularly deleted in Freepland.
