Politics would be a helluva good business if it weren't for the goddamned people.

You Watch Her for Her Brains, Right?

Maggie Gyllenhaal said that the United States "is responsible in some way" for the 9/11 attacks on the World Trade Center. She’s an actress, so her opinion must be really important, right?

"I think America has done reprehensible things and is responsible in some way, and so I think the delicacy with which it's dealt allows that to sort of creep in."

You have to understand, she’s in Hollywood, where creativity in thought is not allowed. Groupthink is the goal, if you want to keep working, and she wants to keep working… it’s easier for her than thinking.

Don’t you see, she’s doing her best to go deep… in a really shallow pond.


Afterthought: Do you think that if someone came up and beat her about the face, she would consider her role? “Maggie Gyllenhaal has done reprehensible things and is responsible in some way.”
