The Vast Right Wing Hollywood Conspiracy

With a flourish of his usual sprezzatura, Mickey Kaus goes deep into the Vast Right Wing Hollywood Conspiracy:

Are you worried about an “emerging network of right-wing people burrowing into the film industry with ulterior sectarian politican and religious agendas”? Maybe I’m complacent about the threat, but isn’t that a little like worrying about the growing anti-Zionist foothold at The New Republic? If you put Hollywoods’s entire network of right wing people in David Horowitz’s living room, you wouldn’t have much trouble getting to the hors d’oeuvre tray. If you tried to put Hollywood’s network of left wing people in the Los Angeles Convention Center, the fire marshal would close it down.

That should help Billy Crystal to sleep a bit more soundly at nights.
