Q: How insanely paranoid is Andrew O’Hehir’s review of the movie Secretariat?
And Ebert is about as far let as it gets.
Ebert’s article starts thus:
Andrew O’Hehir of Salon is a critic I admire, but he has nevertheless written a review of “Secretariat” so bizarre I cannot allow it to pass unnoticed. I don’t find anywhere in “Secretariat” the ideology he discovers there. In its reasoning, his review resembles a fevered conspiracy theory.

Of course if you prefer your red meat from a red source there is always John Nolte at Big Hollywood who says:
O’Hehir’s divisive, race-bating language should look familiar to you. This is what the Left does when they’re losing power and out of attractive ideas to launch any kind of comeback. It’s the language of desperate left-wing politicians and their media allies when facing everyday Americans with the temerity to speak out against ObamaCare and a failed stimulus in townhall meetings; it’s the language of White House surrogates desperate to dishonestly shame into silence the millions who organized Tea Parties after waking up to the nightmarish realization that Obama wasn’t kidding about fundamentally transforming America, and now O’Hehir has opened up this new front.
I had no interest in this movie, I was alive when this happened. The Horse ran and won, but I’m tempted to do so just to make him go Kryten
