    In their latest interview with Michelle Obama, People magazine asked if there were role models the First Lady looked at to think "When I'm 70 or 80, I want to look and live like her?" Mrs. Obama thought of actresses: Cicely Tyson, and then that "politically savvy, sharp woman" named Jane Fonda, age 76: "I just went to see Cicely Tyson on Broadway. She is in her 80s [just turned 80 in December] and did a two-hour play with stamina and passion. I told her 'I want to be you when I grow up!'" And then she added: "There's Jane...

    When we first started getting messages at the Facebook page of “Reagan: The Movie,” objecting to our (allegedly) having chosen Jane Fonda to play the role of Nancy Reagan, we were mildly nonplussed. There were angry calls for boycotts, heartfelt pleas that we change our minds, and the occasional expletive from furious Vietnam veterans. At first we attempted to set the record straight. “Wrong movie,” our Facebook team would write back. “You’re thinking of a movie called ‘The Butler.’” But in time, the trickle turned into a flood and it seemed that no amount of corrections could stop the misunderstanding....

    The movie "Lee Daniels' The Butler" saw its weekend box office receipts plummet by nearly a third, from $24.6 million in its opening week to $17 million last week, after a storm of protests from Republican and veterans groups. The film depicts a White House butler who served eight presidents, and has come under fire for its portrayal of former President Ronald Reagan and his wife Nancy as being racially insensitive and for casting Jane Fonda as the first lady. Supporters of President Reagan and veterans groups especially have criticized the film, with some calling for boycotts. Though the film...

    It would have been too much to ask for Hollywood to give the Reagans their due in the forthcoming movie “The Butler.” You knew that going in. But either way, casting Jane Fonda in the role of Nancy Reagan was surely meant to push buttons, stir up controversy and generate interest in--and hence, profits for--the movie. This being the reality, let me then push some other buttons. The problem with casting Jane Fonda as former First Lady Nancy Reagan is not just that Fonda is nearly twenty years older right now than Mrs. Reagan was when she entered the White...

    Conservative PR guru and Reagan biographer Craig Shirley has an excellent piece over at Breitbart in which he explains why it is utterly detestable that anti-American leftist Jane Fonda was cast as Nancy Reagan in the new Hollywood film Lee Daniels´ The Butler, and not, it´s not just her infamous pose with North Vietnamese anti-aircraft guns. Fonda, Shirley notes, sought to slam the door on Vietnamese "boat people" who were fleeing the brutal Communist regime, while other Americans across the political spectrum -- Shirley commends leftie folk singer Joan Baez for her advocacy of the boat people -- stood up

    The death of Pol Pot, 23 years to the day after he and the Khmer Rouge seized control of Cambodia, occasioned long backward glances at one of the 20th century's most horrific genocides.

"In the name of a radical utopia," The New York Times recalled in its long obituary, "the Khmer Rouge regime had turned...

    AN old skeleton has emerged from Jane Fonda's closet to remind us of her traitorous embrace of the North Vietnamese, which got her dubbed "Hanoi Jane." Docudrama Films is re leasing on DVD a long-suppressed documentary called "FTA," a k a "[Bleep] the Army," which chroni cles the anti-war shows Fonda staged in front of GIs. The flick opened in theaters in 1972 the same week she flew to Hanoi and encouraged the Vietnamese com munists to fight "American impe rialists."

    Blood Will Run in the Streets'--It seems that the final days of the presidential campaign have made Erica Jong and her friends more than a little anxious. A few days ago, Jong, the author and self-described feminist, gave an interview to the Italian daily Corriere della Sera, the choicest bits of which were brought to my attention by the reliably sharp-eyed Christian Rocca, the U.S. correspondent of Il Foglio, who published excerpts on his Camillo blog. Basically, Jong says she her fear that Obama might lose the election has developed into an "obsession. A paralyzing terror. An anxious fever that...

    OK when do we hold JANE FONDA accountable for shooting her idiot mouth off and causing so many of the worlds biggest problems? Look how many died in Vietnam after we pulled out?

Her and John Kerry (did you know he was in Vietnam?) who was there for 3 months, got 3 purple hearts, and "committed atrocities" And how about that stupid "China Syndrome" movie that convinced us all how EEEEEEEeeevil nuclear power was? We could have been a lot less dependant on foreign oil, and needed 2 less Gulf Wars (its all...

    To: info “at” barackobama.com, media “at” barackobama.com, watchdog “at” barackobama.com cc: Multiple blogs, with encouragement to circulate as viral E-mailDear Mr. Obama, It is one matter to oppose a war or criticize the manner in which it is being fought. It is another matter to call terrorists who are murdering our soldiers–and we use the word “murder” deliberately, because only a uniformed combatant who is fighting according to the laws of war can legally kill an opposing soldier–”Minutemen” who are fighting the American “occupation” of Iraq. Michael Moore, whose endorsement you have refused to reject, has done exactly this on...

I almost died, and the Vietnamese people saved my...
