Top 10 Conservative Idiots

I've been meaning to link back to the Democratic Underground's Top 10 Conservative Idiots list, but with my very busy schedule, I've neglected to do so. I am happy to announce that today I am correcting that mistake. Click here to read this week's installment.

Today was Martin Luther King, Jr., day, which meant no school. And while I should have done something to honor the memory of Dr. King, I ended up doing homework...all day long. Several chapters of math (you know, the bonehead math I'm now taking because I've forgotten almost everything I learned 20 years ago) and several chapters in my film studies class. We're discussing Alfred Hitchcock (of course) and his film North by Northwest.

I didn't like it.

Which will likely make me a heretic in the eyes of my classmates. They love Hitchcock. They love to talk about him in class, too, which puts me at a disadvantage as I've never seen a Hitchcock film (well, until I saw North by Northwest).

But I'll keep an open mind, and even though I'm likely to argue the case that North by Northwest was...well...stupid. And I have my reasons. Such as, the plot was stupid. Something about a man falsely accused of being a spy, climaxing in a scene with characters chasing each other on top of (and in) Mt. Rushmore.

You'll notice a lack of political commentary this post. My apologies. Truth be told, I was too busy with homework to find something to comment on. I could go into the details of my math homework. Nah, I'd better not.

Stay tuned...
