A haunting question has been tormenting me lately.
When the cream of the French Champaign Socialists gives a standing ovation to Michael Moore, with the full set of cheers and hand clapping, where the hell do they put their silver spoons?

They can't keep them in their mouths, they can't hold them with their hands, you would be a definitive boor if you were to put anything in your tux pockets, and there's nothing you can slide inside those haute couture dresses beside your average highly stupid albeit widely smiling actress meat.

Particularly with the aging ones, who get naturally meatier over the time.

I'm not yet losing any sleep over this, but damn! Where, I wonder?

Anyway, I guess it will keep haunting me for some time but talking about Michael Moore and other mindless meat, Tim Blair quotes this letter to the Australian:
The movie Fahrenheit 9/11 asserts the children of US congressmen are under-represented in US forces in Iraq.

There are 300 million Americans; 130,000 US troops in Iraq; 535 congressmen and women; and at least five children of congressmen serving in Iraq.

Thirty seconds of intellectual effort shows that children of US congressmen are very over-represented in Iraq; but 30 seconds is way over the capacity of admirers of Fahrenheit 9/11.
You know it's not in my habits to quote most (if not all) of other bloggers' posts so I'll be honest with you: I just couldn't resist the pleasure to have that translated in French, in the next column.

After all, it's clear by now that Moore's most enthusiasts fan base and support is largely made of the French anti-Americans¹ and Hamas terrorists¹.

Une question lancinante me tourmente ces derniers temps.
Quand la crème de la gauche caviar française offre une standing ovation à Michael Moore, avec toute la panoplie de hourrahs et de clappements de mains, où peuvent ils bien mettre leurs cuillères en argent ?

Ils ne peuvent pas les garder en bouche, ils ne peuvent pas les tenir en main, vous seriez vraiment du dernier vulgaire si vous tentiez seulement de mettre quoi que ce soit dans les poches d'un smoking et il n'est rien que l'on puisse glisser dans ces robes de haute couture en surplus de l'habituelle viande d'actrice hautement stupide bien que largement souriante.

Particulièrement chez les plus âgées, qui ont tendance à faire naturellement plus de viande avec le temps.

Cela ne m'empêche pas encore de dormir, mais bon sang! Où, je me le demande ?

Quoi qu'il en soit, j'imagine que cela va me hanter encore quelque temps, mais puisque nous abordons le sujet de Michael Moore et autres viandes d'abrutis, Tim Blair cite ce courrier au journal the Australian:
Le film Fahrenheit 9/11 affirme que les enfants de membres du congrès US sont sous-représentés dans les forces US en Irak.

Il y a 300 millions d'Américains; 130,000 troupes US en Irak; 535 députés hommes et femmes; et au moins 5 enfants de membres du congrès servant en Irak.

Trente secondes d'effort intellectuel montrent que les enfants de députés US sont particulièrement en sureffectifs en Irak; mais 30 secondes, c'est bien au-delà des capacités des admirateurs de Fahrenheit 9/11.
Vous savez qu'il n'est pas dans mes habitudes de citer les posts d'autres bloggers dans (quasiment) leur entier, je serais donc honnête avec vous : je n'ai pas pu résister au plaisir de traduire ça en français dans cette colonne.

Après tout, il est maintenant clair que les fans et supporters les plus enthousiastes de Moore sont constitués de Français anti-Américains¹ et de terroristes du Hamas¹.

DF, watch the news, first Ray Bradbury sues Mental Midget for using the title to his book (modified), now the Bloomington, IL Pantograph news paper is suing for using an illegally modified front page in his celluloid snake oil pitch. Life is good.

Mike, I believe he pushed his chance a bit too far this time. Life is good? You bet! It will be even better when the Balloon Will Deflate.

Wonder no more, my dear DF. Whilst they clap and hoot, the cultured gendarmes of High Culture keep their silver spoons in the same place you suggested Mr. Moore keep his Palm d'Or. They've got to equalize the pressure near their brains or suffer the intellectual bends trying to contemplate how many are two plus two. (Why else would you get three complete sets of silverware per place setting?)

Do you mean to tell me they are not stealing the silverware? Either there has been an epidemic of honesty (doubtful) or the spoons are just stainless steel (much more likely). Very good to see you posting again, DF.

Spot the redundancy That's easy...All four words are redundant...to each other. And where do they put the silver spoons? All you have to do is ask them to bend over... cheshirecat

Et dire qu'à une époque, on délivrait la palme d'or à des films comme Kagemusha (1980) de Kurosawa ... Quelle décrépitude ! Moore, s'ils ne faisait que transformer des faits réels, les recadrer et les commenter s'approcherait déjà plus de sa "condition de journaliste pur" qu'on lui attribue en France. Malheuresement, nombres de faits qu'ils évoquent ne sont en rien prouvés, et de vives critiques justifiées rise up. De plus, la présentation de faits n'est en rien l'objectif du film. This big fat stupid white man assène son idéologie ad nauseam. Exemple : - Les USA et la coalition ont attaqué l'Afghanistan pour qu'une société texane puisse construire un pipeline de gaz naturel On se rappelle tous le clip de propagande qu'avait réalisé Moore, montrant diverses manifestations "pacifistes" et jugeant Bush, Blair, Saddam et Laden comme moralement égaux. Et bien, Moore a franchi un nouveau palier. Il nous montre l'Iraq d'avant-guerre comme un havre de paix, où les adultes sourient du plaisir de vivre et où les enfants jouent gaiement avec des cerfs-volants. La balance de la justice Moorienne s'est déséquilibrée et le refus de hiérarchiser s'est mué en un jugement du bien du mal digne de Goebbels. Amicalement, Will

I take issue with your calculation. Children of typically over-the-hill Congressmen are many times more likely to be in the age range appropriate for military service than any other randomly chosen American. To expect the children of Congressmen to be represented as many as the whole American population, which includes people we wouldn't consider fit for military service (those under the age of 18 or over, say 35) is just silly. Try 60 seconds of intellectual effort next time.

Well, I take issue with your inability to follow hyperlinks. You didn't get the point behind the numbers precisely because you wouldn't bother following the links and instead tried to play with numbers. As a consequence, you don't know who's talking and why this calculation makes a particular sense (no, it's not *my* calculation sweetheart). I guess you could try 60 seconds of attention, but just as intellectual efforts, I imagine that's way over your capacity. So hey, what about going back to the movies ?
