Finally you silly Earthlings are learning how to handle political criticism, and of people to do it, it's those namby-pamby Democrats who figured it out.
When ABC's The Path to 9/11 threatened to show a less than flattering portrait of the Clinton administration, they acted the way proper dictators should. They all jumped on the network like a pack of rabid Silurian Pocknocks and forced them to change it.
Some of are even calling for a congressional investigation of the filmmakers. I'm feeling so proud of them, I'm getting all choked up.
And what really makes me happy is that they're doing this with the sort of damn the plasma torpedos attitude that gives no thought at all to the consequences of their actions. They see no problem in using political pressure to squelch free speech in their quest for ultimate power.
They don't seem to care that they're giving Republicans the right to demand changes be made to films like Fahrenheit 9/11, V for Vendetta, Syriana, Loose Change, and other film they deem insulting or slanderous.
Maybe they'll finally give the Matrix movies a decent ending.
Now the Democrats could have gone the wussy route, like they usually do, and file a lawsuit against the network and the producers of the Path to 9/11, but they're taking the smart route.
This way they can get what they want without having to face any tough questions in open court while under oath. This way they can bury anything that might embarrass them and get rid of that pesky free speech thing at the same time.
I'm so proud of you right now, I could plotz.
