Monday's HOT MIC
One re: Kevin Spacey (aka Spacey at the Bat). Stephen writes: "It's been Hollywood's open secret for two decades that Kevin Spacey is gay." It wasn't even a secret, open or otherwise. No more than that David Geffen is gay. He was completely out. When this woman from the lahdedah British National Theatre suddenly announced they knew of Kevin's repellent proclivities all along, all I could think of is, well, they're all corrupt.
But we all knew that and who cares about those people? On to the serious matter -- Russia. This is the most dishonest controversy ever -- or perhaps it's because I'm more awake now. Both sides wanted better relations with Russia -- why not? -- but the possibility has been destroyed by this endless partisan bloodletting, not to mention titanic greed from Manafort to the Clintons. Let's hope the Podestas get swept up too. But the real victims are us. Result: always self-interested Russia embraces Iran and Syria and the rest is history, Europe destroyed, etc. All these things are related. Our media and politicians are so disgustingly selfish.
