"Sony emails reveal racist slams on Obama"

I have to say, I don't think private emails should be hacked and made public.

But I also have to admit, I'm certainly enjoying reading how these rich, liberal Hollywood power brokers who donated money to Obama's campaigns talk in private.

How often do you actually get to be the proverbial fly on the wall?

The jokes weren't really all that "racist," by the way, though I'm sure both Scott Rudin and Amy Pascal are cringing right now.

It'll certainly be edifying to see exactly what form their groveling and apologies take.

This hacked stuff is often too juicy for me not to click. I realize that I do it for selfish evil reasons.

It would seem like a cruel nitpicking to hold us accountable for all the rude, arrogant an "ungood" things we text, e-mail or say in casual conversation. But maybe it would make us more honest and even more moral.

In the past a part of populace, including the elite, believed in allknowing God who hacked all our deeds and thoughts and put out shocking headlines for Saint Peter to read at the heaven's gate. Maybe they were really more honest, less corrupt. The only way to fool God was to be actually good and honest. Maybe it would be good for Scott Rubin to have such a belief, that only way he can appear acceptable and loved is to truly be good, not to ridicule and humiliate movie stars in private e-mails or even in thoughts.

I must admit, i would hate to have my private emails hacked, even though there's less of a difference between what I say publicly (on this blog) and what i say privately than there is with those two Hollywood honchos.

good point about people being answerable to God. I'm not religious myself, but a belief in an omniscient almighty would go a long way towards keeping some people in line.

Rudin and Pascal are about to be banished (at least publicly) to the Hollywood Hell of not being invited to any snobby black tie dinners and events for at least a couple of months. They'll be half-heartedly ridiculed and lectured on the evils of racism and MSNBC will lecture us on how white and institutionally racist Hollywood is.

Of course we all know how hypocritical these creatures are. No one needs to tell those of us that understand leftist grandstanding, pontificating and posturing.

The leftists that dared criticize the Commander in Chief need to don their hair suits and let the self flagellation begin in earnest.

That sounds like the most likely scenario. And yes, none of this was really a surprise. Liberals are almost always hypocrites.

Actually, the emails weren't even racist. Obama himself mentioned how much he admired GUESS WHO'S COMING HOME TO DINNER. Why shouldn't a black person prefer movies with black actors and black themes? That's normal and to be expected.

I couldn't agree more. Although, as we both know, everyone has their own definition of what constitutes "racism."

Personally, I don't think a statement is "racist" if it's factual. However, what the Left does, twisting or cherry-picking facts to make certain races look better, is. But, as I say, everyone has their own definition.
