I really didn’t want to do it. I really didn’t want to do a “fat director kicked off plane” blog post, but the more I thought about it the more necessary it became.
Kevin Smith, while not as outspoken in his liberalism as his friends Ben Affleck and Matt Damon, is still liberal. In fact, he’s wanted to do a horror move called Red State for some time now. Nothing says box office success like blatantly using half the country as an inspiration for a horror flick. I’m meandering, but has anyone watched the trailer for Cop Out? Have you seen Smith’s name anywhere near it? Didn’t think so…
Anyway, back to the subject at hand: Smith’s weight. One would think that the liberal Smith would have listened to Michelle Obama, who linked the country’s obesity problem with national security.
Or what about New York, the “Blue State” that is now working on creating a new elite Salt Police unit. Oh, I forgot, Smith is from New Jersey. Their liberalism is of the kind that creates rules against pumping your own gas.
I suppose I answered my question yesterday when I linked to Bill Maher and his rant based on the premise that military men and women are idiots (Those “Red State” recruits that sign up in droves). Smith isn’t a threat to national security because he wouldn’t be signing up for a stint in the Army even if he was at fighting weight. He’s too busy writing comics that sometimes, maybe, sorta…make it to your local comic shop.
But seriously, Kevin, I wish you the best of luck. Eat to your heart’s content. And get back to another incarnation of Clerks because…that’s what you’re good at. And the Soul Asylum song on the soundtrack? Classic.
