It's Hard To Find Entertainment With All The Hate Around.

I used to like Henry Rollins. Really. Sure, he's a sh*tty singer, but even he will admit that he sounds like a baboon f*cking a toaster oven in a hot tub filled with lye and Perrier. His spoken word albums, heck, call them what they are, stand-up comedy albums, are hysterical and his comedy specials were as well.

But, as the mind-eating fevers of Bush Derangement Syndrome have rendered otherwise talented performers from Janeane Garofalo, Alec Baldwin, Sean Penn, the Dixie Chicks, etc. into screeching, shrill harpies consumed with spewing their hate all over their audiences, it's getting harder and harder to look past the vicious snarling teeth to see what they're up to artistically.

Rollins has a chat show on IFC which the g/f and I were looking forward to watching, even though he was having the shrill and marginally talented Sleater-Kinney on as music guests. I know that like 99% of Hollywood, he's a Lefty - you're not allowed to work unless you toe that line - but we were taken aback at the sheer blind parroting of the moonbat shibboleths that he uttered. He and Oliver Stone were so enthusiastically bashing Dubya for everything from the war to the disappointing turns Britney Spears career has taken as of late. (They must've cut the part out where Henry ripped open Stone's relaxed fit khakis and vigorously fellated him.)

Even tackier was a segment in which he wrote a letter to Laura Bush, basically trashing her husband in nasty terms - especially by my aggressive standards - and it simply wasn't funny or satirical. It was mean-spirited and totally beneath him. We cut the tape off there and never bothered to check back.

Judging from Henry Rollins: A Love Letter To Ann Coulter, which is making the unhinged titter as they see their best-selling nemesis being bashed by the formerly-feminist Rollins. I guess this is supposed to be adapted from a character called "Ann Hitler" from his latest book - uh, Godwin's Law? - but the repeated theme of the article is that Ann needs to come over to Henry's pad and be his subservient sex slave and "shut the f*ck up."

WTF is that about? Humor works when it's true and since Ann isn't Hitler, this isn't funny and how does Henry get a pass for his misogyny? Because non-fascist-liberals aren't accorded any right to basic courtesy in the Left's diseased, enraged minds? Duh. Of course not!!! Unless you drink from the Kool-Aid nozzle that feeds them all, you aren't entitled to jack, Jack!!!

Now, let's flip the script: Imagine Rush Limbaugh doing a "Letter to Nancy Pelosi" or Cindy Sheehan in which he used the same language Henry uses. Who'd be laughing then? Nobody? Would the P.C. police be hauling him in for disturbing the peace?


Hypocrisy is the coin of the liberal realm. I can't wait for 2009 to see if these maniacs will STFU themselves and get back to being pleasant company or whether they'll tear into President Mitt Romney the same way?
