Scandals? Live Long and Prosper
Two winners took off again this weekend.
The new Star Trek movie beat out Iron Man and everything else at the box office, despite a less than stellar $70.6 million dollar domestic opening. I review it below.
And President Obama seems to have beaten out his critics, once again. The new CNN poll gives him a 53% job approval rating. And while several other polls are several points lower, those numbers are still boffo considering that even the mainstream media last week noticed:
1. Benghazi and the 12 versions of the White House talking points that systematically hacked away at references to warnings, requests for increased security, and the ultimate attack by al Qaeda affiliates;
2. The IRS targeting upwards of 500 conservative groups for nearly three years; and
3. (The one that really raised media squeals, however briefly) Eric Holder's Department of Justice secretly seizing phone records of Associated Press reporters (and now it seems, also reporters for FOX).
The reaction of at least half the public?
So consider this my Friday Fun blog. We didn't do one last Friday. Instead I suggested that the real answer to IRS political intimidation might be a flat tax. (See below or at right "Take Away the Power to Destroy").
Now I realize the better response to political intimidation is a movie review.
