Ace of Spades flogs Andrew O'Hehir like a rented mule

Detroit Failed Because Right Wingers Engineered It To Fail, to Prove Black People Can't Run Their Own Governments, Or Something

Detroit Failed Because Right Wingers Engineered It To Fail, to Prove Black People Can't Run Their Own Governments, Or Something

Now since I've been forced to read this imbecile's piece, I'll just run with it and note that this guy, Andrew O'Hehir, usually fills his days embarrassing himself in movie reviews.
Here's his review of The Conjuring, a dumb horror movie about a demonic possession and exorcism which supposedly occurred in real life, during the 1970s. The 1970s are a special problem for O'Hehir, and clearly the time this brokedown hippie came of age, as we'll see a little later.
Now I'm not going to quote much of this but I'll let you know he actually thinks most aspects of this movie are good to superior -- that is, it's a good movie. But let's not let that fact interfere with his ability to spill embarrassment all over himself by reading every single thing as some sort of rightwing cryptomessaging.

Maybe because I've met the author in real life, AoS's jolly sarcasm is especially funny. Or maybe because of the total contempt I feel for the modern beta male like O'Hehir. Great read.

Sorry! There are no comments related to the filter you selected.

I just read the Ace of Spades meta-review, and I have to say that reading the material quoted from the original review made me lose IQ points. O'Hehir definitely lives in his own little reality.

But Ace's riffs, in his blog and on Twitter, are a sight.

Indeed they are.
