Not Pretty Enough

This doesn't sound very nice, does it?

Earlier this week, it was announced that Quentin Tarantino’s next film will center on the Manson Family murders, specifically the killing of Hollywood beauty Sharon Tate.

Speculations about potential casting choices began swirling online almost immediately, with outlets reporting that Tarantino had met with Margot Robbie for the role of Tate, noting that Jennifer Lawrence was also rumored to be involved with the project. 

It remains unclear as to whether both Robbie and Lawrence are actually being considered for Tate (or any role, for that matter). If it does come down to those two stars, Tate’s sister Debra has a strong opinion about who she’d choose. 

“They’re both extremely accomplished actresses but I would have to say, my pick would be Margot. Simply because her physical beauty and the way she even carries herself is similar to that of Sharon,” Debra recently told TMZ. 

But she didn’t stop there. 

“I don’t think as much about Jennifer Lawrence,” she continued. “Not that I have anything against her. But she just, I don’t know, she’s not pretty enough to play Sharon. That’s a horrible thing to say, but I have my standards.” 

She added, “Physical beauty wouldn’t be so important, but Sharon’s six years of her public life were all based on that incredibly beautiful natural perfect look, in soul heart and spirit. Thats what I’m looking to try to capture.” 

I think this is a very superficial examination of what this part might need. Lawrence and Robbie could do this and it would work. But, really, why would you want to go around saying things like that about someone's appearance? If you really cared about the project, you'd look at the experience and the artistry of the person, not their appearance. 

Andrea Peyser is Still Insane

Holy crap:

Bill Cosby is a lousy husband and a possible sex addict. But is he a rapist?

I have my doubts.

Is Cosby, 78, so diabolically creepy that he secretly slipped Quaaludes into the mouths of his alleged victims, as even President Obama suggests? Perhaps.

But I’m starting to think that Cosby’s “crimes’’ were not rapes, but high-pressure seductions.

This may be female heresy.

Still, I wonder if some, if not most (or maybe all?), of the dozens of women who claim Cosby attempted or completed sexual assaults against them, dating back as far as the 1960s, swallowed drugs willingly before the encounters.

That kind of contrarian bullshit could only have been written by a crazy person working at the New York Post. In other words, Andrea Peyser. Someone is paying this bag of nuts to write things in public?

In case you missed it, a high-pressure seduction is rape when the man admits to giving the woman drugs to shut down her central nervous system.

Jeeeee-zus.

Nobody Goes to Jail These Days


 Someone wake up Dinesh D'Souza before he sleeps through his stories:
David Axelrod, a former senior adviser to President Obama, says he’s proud of the fact “there hasn’t been a major scandal” during the administration’s six years in office.
Axelrod was responding to a question from the audience about the so-called Washington revolving door between lobbyists and the White House during a discussion of his recent book at the University of Chicago Institute of Politics.
Somewhere, a man's head just exploded in a spasm of outrage and you can hear the indignant persecution complex of D'Souza begin anew:
Conservative author and filmmaker Dinesh D'Souza avoided prison on Tuesday when a U.S. judge sentenced him to serve eight months in a community confinement center after he pleaded guilty to violating campaign finance law.
D'Souza, 53, was ordered by U.S. District Judge Richard Berman in Manhattan to live in a center, which would allow him to leave during non-residential hours for employment, for the first eight months of a five-year probationary period.
Berman also ordered D'Souza to perform one day of community service a week during probation, undergo weekly therapy and pay a $30,000 fine.
D'Souza, a frequent critic of U.S. President Barack Obama, admitted in May to illegally reimbursing two "straw donors" who donated $10,000 each to the unsuccessful 2012 U.S. Senate campaign in New York of Wendy Long, a Republican he had known since attending Dartmouth College in the early 1980s.
So, just to recap--none of the Obama appointees have gone to jail, only a handful have done anything wrong, and one of the most prominent critics of the Obama Administration can't even get sent to jail in this modern era of elitist backscratching and corruption. A few people have resigned, but, big deal, right? Nobody's being dumped in a Federal Prison anywhere.

What does that tell you about where this country is headed right now? Nobody will ever go to jail for anything ever again.
