Obligatory Mel Gibson Post

Not wanting to miss out on the hottest topic screaming across the blososphere, I thought I should say three words about Mel Gibson's anti-Semitic rant while being arrested for drunk driving (which also included of the Passion of the Christ filmmaker calling a female officer "sugar tits"). And while this proves without question that Mel Gibson is a racist idiot, this stereotype shouldn't be extended to everyone on the Christian right. But it is very interesting that the same guy who made a movie that was called anti-Semitic (a charge that was vehemously denied) has turned around and said that Jews are responsible for everything that's wrong with the world after having a few drinks. Will this be the end of Gibson's career in Hollywood? I think he's got some tough times ahead, no matter what kind of ham-fisted apology he makes. Of course, this incident is ripe for satire.

Hi,

Just wanted to say that calling a woman sugartits does not prove that someone is racist. Oh yeah, and antisemitic doesnt just refer to jews, it refers to people of a middle eastern descent in general. Im glad you met Mel Gibson, because im sure, like all of us, you know hes an idiot. Im also glad he was charged for making antisemitic comments - who needs freedom of speech anyway?

Peace

Perhaps I misspoke. I guess it just means he's a FUCKING ASSHOLE.
