The Last Temptation Of Mel

“Mel Gibson Busted for DUI”, according to TMZ.com.

As always, whenever someone generally associated (rightly or wrongly) with conservatism is arrested for substance abuse, watch for hypocritical attacks on Mel’s sobriety to come from a generation that lionizes Keith Richards, Keith Moon, Charlie Parker, Dorothy Parker, Teddy Kennedy, Scott Fitzgerald, and numerous other famous non-teetotalers.

Update 7/31/06: This post was written before details of Mel’s despicable anti-Semitic tirade came to light. See these newer posts for my current thoughts on Gibson.
