So let me get this straight. The Harrieterati want us to sneer at Bradley Cooper playing Lucifer but applaud the casting of con man Kenny Goldsmith as Julian Assange because Goldsmith routinely violates copyright laws at UbuWeb. Now, I’m sure Cooper will never match my favorite film Satan, David Warner; but I’m equally sure that Goldsmith bears as much resemblance to Assange as Dan Quayle did to John F. Kennedy.*
* For those who don’t recall, vice presidential candidate Quayle famously miscorrected a student’s correct spelling of “potato” by telling him to add an “e” to the end of the word. Hey—it’s still funny to watch!
