Best Oscar Predictions

Gentle reader and number one commenter jb in ca directs our attention to the Oscar predictions prognosticated by conservative sledgehammer Ann Coulter. We agree that these are priceless predictions, especially as they have not been unfairly influenced by Ms. Coulter's having seen even one of the nominated movies (gentle readers no doubt know that the Oscars are awarded for various social, economic and political reasons that have nothing to do with the artistic merits of movies). Our favorite quotation:

The best original screenplay will be "Good Night, and Good Luck" as Hollywood's final tribute to the old Stalinists (Hollywood's version of "The Greatest Generation"). George Clooney has been mau-mauing the awards committee by going around boasting that conservatives have called him a "traitor," although I believe the precise term was "airhead."

Ms. Coulter adds a few predictions about what Hollywood will give us next. In line with the theme of Brokeback Mountain, she suggests the following:

"Westward Homo!"
"The Magnificent, Fabulous Seven"
"Gunfight at the K-Y Corral"
"How West Hollywood Was Won"

I've heard that in Turkey, "Brokeback Mountain" was translated to "F-ggot Cowboys."

My vote goes for Jon Stewart for best actor in his role of hosting the oscars. He should be able to beat a gay cowboy any day, hands down.
