Question For The Left: Must EVERYTHING Be About Your BDS?

Liberals are consumed by Bush Derangement Syndrome. They can't stop mentioning how much they hate him and those who voted for him. You know how comedians always drop a mention of how they're Jewish, even if it's apropos of nothing - Why do I always get stuck behind the dumb guy at airport screening? I'm Jewish, but I don't feel the need to bring my silverware along. What's up with Lindsey Lohan? My Jewish mother would scold her." - that's how liberals are about their BDS and need to share with the class.

I was reading a computer gaming magazine last week and one guy mentioned a few times that when he had to deal with red and blue teams, he made sure to screw over the red ones and how stupid he thought the President was. It was his way of pronouncing the BDS shibboleth to all who read him. "I hate Bush, too. I'm one of you."

What brings this up is Stephanie Zacharek's review of "The Bourne Ultimatum" at Salon. The third in the Matt Damon - I'll wait while you "Team America" fans say it out loud - action series opens today and her review opens with this:

Jason Bourne, in theory, could be George W. Bush's dream historian, a loyal foot soldier who has been conditioned to obey and serve but whose mind has been broken and reconfigured to conveniently forget certain details and fixate on others. You couldn't find a better candidate to sit down and write a glowing record of the W. presidency. It would be a masterpiece of selective memory -- except for the fact that Jason Bourne insists on trying to use even the parts of his brain that don't work.
What the f*ck is that about? People looking for a movie review have to wade through this twit's yawp of partisan rage before discussion of the cinematic product can commence. It's bad enough that you've got to sit through commercials at the theater; now you have to sit through the reading of some critic's political grievances before you learn whether the movie is worth the time?

Later, she burps up this:
Maybe guys like Greengrass should be reserved only for serious pictures about serious subjects, movies like "Bloody Sunday" and "United 93" (the latter a picture whose mere existence I have problems with, as much as I respect Greengrass' technique and approach).
She doesn't explain as to WHY she has a problem with the movie. Does she believe that showing America's first response to jihadi terror is not useful because it gives others the idea that fighting back is better than bowing to the sword of Islamofascism? Does she disagree with what's shown, since her fellow travelers believe the plane was shot down by Dick Cheney himself in his Sith TIE fighter? Who cares as long as she gets her BDS rocks off, right?
