Republicans/conservatives scratching their heads about Karl Rove’s unrelenting attacks against Donald Trump should acquaint themselves with the shared history of Rove and current DNC interim chair Donna Brazile. It’s an interesting read which also details how Republicans/conservative leaders share culpability for electing Barack Obama.
Recently one of those culpable, Sean Hannity, apologized for participating in one of several ‘destroy Hillary Clinton, help Barack Obama’ efforts. Such Republicans/conservatives, along with the lunatic “demographic destiny” writers of the left are responsible for the harm currently afflicting this country. They helped nominate and elect the Chicago flim-flam man. They deserve Hellish miseries for the harm they have done.
Karl Rove, as Donald Trump delights in pointing out, is also responsible for helping elect Barack Obama. That harm was not only in his alliance with Donna Brazile but also in Rove’s foolish belief in his own infallibility. Rove in 2006 boasted he had “the math” but his math did not add up to victory.
Kaitlyn e-mailed and asked if I'd consider doing a 90s movie once a month through the summer to make up for not doing 90s movies all month?
Absolutely. Great idea.
So I'll grab the chance to do a movie from the last ten years.
One of my favorite actresses is Thandie Newton. I generally see everything she does.
But I skipped one intentionally.
Not because of her.
Because of him.
I used to love Eddie Murphy. But there were too many awful movies. Look, I can take a dumb action flick like "The Golden Child" but I still have the bad taste of "Pluto Nash" in my mouth.
Because of that, I avoided "Norbit."
Because of Thandie, I knew I'd see it some day.
Some day came this week.
"Norbit" was hilarious.
It is not a great or brilliant film.
It is laugh-out-loud funny.
I watched it three times.
This is the Eddie Murphy I know and love. He was perfect as Norbit. He developed a character and was just great in the part. And he was even better as Rasputia -- Norbit's wife.
I could watch Rasputia all day. In fact, there needs to be a sequel.
The ending looked like it was going to be soggy but thank goodness they brought Rasputia back for a few seconds. You really wanted to see her one more time before the film ended. She's hilarious.
And so is "Norbit." It's really a shame that some performers can repeatedly make so many bad movies you give up on them.
