W is Batman?
I think this gentleman is batsh*t. But here at KPC, we report, you deride.
What do YOU think?
There seems to me no question that the Batman film "The Dark Knight,"
currently breaking every box office record in history, is at some level a
paean of praise to the fortitude and moral courage that has been shown by
George W. Bush in this time of terror and war. Like W, Batman is vilified
and despised for confronting terrorists in the only terms they understand.
Like W, Batman sometimes has to push the boundaries of civil rights to deal
with an emergency, certain that he will re-establish those boundaries when
the emergency is past.
And like W, Batman understands that there is no moral equivalence between a
free society -- in which people sometimes make the wrong choices -- and a
criminal sect bent on destruction. The former must be cherished even in its
moments of folly; the latter must be hounded to the gates of Hell.
