Too Many Queer Guys For the Revolution's Eye

I wasn't aware that the website Conservative Revolution existed before today.

Nor was I aware of the "onslaught of gay movies out there" right now:

I don’t know if the rest of you have noticed this, but there is currently an onslaught of gay movies out there. Not that there is anything wrong with that, but the movie studios are complaining about low movie attendance and gay movie central is not going to help. Here is just a smattering of the gay movies currently in theaters:

Brokeback Mountain
Breakfast on Pluto
Memoirs of a Gaysha

Memoirs of a Gaysha? That's the funniest thing I've seen so far this week.

Let's take a look at this "onslaught" of gay films really quickly.

The top ten domestic film distributors release, on broad average, around two hundred films a year.

TWO HUNDRED. (see top ten distributors for 2003 here, lest you think me full of shite)

That's a lot of films. Of these TWO HUNDRED films, three of them (four if you count the movie about the "Gaysha's") have got some gayness goin' on.

Three. Out of two hundred.

Yessir, a veritable onslaught. A proverbial Gallipoli campaign of Gayness.


Love the nod toward political correctness, too. "Not that there's anything wrong with that" belongs up there alongside "some of my best friends are black people" in the Most Unconvincing Display of Tolerance pyramid (2005 edition).

Ahhh...It's good to vent. These pipes...are clean.

how do you have a conservative revolution if the conservatives are the ones in power?

Whether or not you think it's the conservative agenda or the liberal media that's currently operating, Oz-the-Great-and-Terrible-like behind the curtain of politics, I think we can all agree that this particular "Revolution" is pretty damn funny.

Memoirs of a Gaysha. heh. That's just comedy GOLD.

And hi, Joe. Nice to see ya!

Gay-sha, has to be on purpose. If the movie shows geisha on geisha action then I guess that would be right (and it would sell a ton of tickets, more than a movie showing cowboy on cowboy action would).

I thought so too, but look at his site. It's VERY unironic.
