Rich Brookhiser of National Review’s The Corner and I have something in common; our wives apparently want us to take them to the movies or out to coffee but dread what is going to come out of our mouths.
Mr. Brookhiser’s comment about the movie Che “Communist murderer” seem’s much like something I would say, unfortunately to my wife’s discomfort. Such as standing in line at Starbuck’s, hearing the manager complain about the cost of something skyrocketing because of “global warming”, and me commenting that “I think the Red Chinese are behind it.”
My wife thought this inappropriate. On reflection,I don’t think it was inapproriate but wasted. On reflection I’m not sure the twenty-somethings in line understand that the Chinese are Communist, (thus Red), and that in fact they do not have the best interest of the US, and capitalism, in mind. They do in fact have much to gain from crushing our economy by any means possible.
I think I will ask my wife to go to a movie to make up for my faux paus. Does anyone know where they are not showing Che: the Commie Pinko?
