Andrew Sullivan Leaving the 'Right'!

Fri, 04 Dec 2009 05:27:00 +0000

"IN HIS OWN WORDS"

I cannot support a movement that claims to believe in limited government but backed an unlimited domestic and foreign policy presidency that assumed illegal, extra-constitutional dictatorial powers until forced by the system to return to the rule of law.
I cannot support a movement that exploded spending and borrowing and blames its successor for the debt.
I cannot support a movement that so abandoned government's minimal and vital role to police markets and address natural disasters that it gave us Katrina and the financial meltdown of 2008.
I cannot support a movement that holds torture as a core value.
I cannot support a movement that holds that purely religious doctrine should govern civil political decisions and that uses the sacredness of religious faith for the pursuit of worldly power.
I cannot support a movement that is deeply homophobic, cynically deploys fear of homosexuals to win votes, and gives off such a racist vibe that its share of the minority vote remains pitiful.
I cannot support a movement which has no real respect for the institutions of government and is prepared to use any tactic and any means to fight political warfare rather than conduct a political conversation.
I cannot support a movement that sees permanent war as compatible with liberal democratic norms and limited government.
I cannot support a movement that criminalizes private behavior in the war on drugs.
I cannot support a movement that would back a vice-presidential candidate manifestly unqualified and duplicitous because of identity politics and electoral cynicism.
I cannot support a movement that regards gay people as threats to their own families.
I cannot support a movement that does not accept evolution as a fact.
I cannot support a movement that sees climate change as a hoax and offers domestic oil exploration as the core plank of an energy policy.
I cannot support a movement that refuses ever to raise taxes, while proposing no meaningful reductions in government spending.
I cannot support a movement that refuses to distance itself from a demagogue like Rush Limbaugh or a nutjob like Glenn Beck.
I cannot support a movement that believes that the United States should be the sole global power, should sustain a permanent war machine to police the entire planet, and sees violence as the core tool for international relations.
Does this make me a "radical leftist" as Michelle Malkin would say? Emphatically not. But it sure disqualifies me from the current American right.
To paraphrase Reagan, I didn't leave the conservative movement. It left me.
And increasingly, I'm not alone.

Keira Nabs Starring Role in "My Fair Lady" Remake

Actress Keira Knightley will portray Cockney flower girl Eliza Doolittle in the forthcoming film remake of the classic 1956 Lerner and Loewe musical My Fair Lady.

The Telegraph reports that "Pride and Prejudice" director Joe Wright will reunite with Knightley for the movie musical. Academy Award-winning actress Emma Thompson is penning the screenplay that includes additional material from Shaw's Pygmalion.

Knightly, who will star in the West End revival of The Misanthrope in December, was among the first names bandied about when the remake was announced in 2008. A Steady Rain's Daniel Craig has been mentioned as a candidate for Professor Henry Higgins.

"My Fair Lady" is produced by Cameron Mackintosh and Duncan Kenworthy. As previously reported, the creative team intends to film on location in London to give the film an authentic feel. According to a previous statement, producers hope to "dramatize as believably as possible for present-day audiences the emotional highs and lows of Eliza Doolittle as she undergoes the ultimate makeover, transforming under the tutelage of Professor Henry Higgins from a Cockney flower girl to a lady."

Knightley has appeared on screen in "Atonement," "The Duchess," "The Edge of Love," "Pride and Prejudice," "Bend It Like Beckham," "Domino" and the "Pirates of the Caribbean" series.



My Fair Lady is based on George Bernard Shaw's Pygmalion and features a book and lyrics by Alan Jay Lerner and music by Frederick Loewe. The original Broadway production opened on March 15, 1956, ran for over six years and won nine Tony Awards, including one for Best Musical. The score contains such Broadway classics as "I Could Have Danced All Night," "On the Street Where You Live," "Wouldn't It Be Loverly?" and "Get Me to the Church on Time."
The musical was adapted for the screen in 1963, directed by George Cukor, and cast Audrey Hepburn as Eliza and Rex Harrison as Higgins. The film won eight Academy Awards, including Best Picture, Best Director and Best Actor.

Mary Travers

Thu, 17 Sep 2009 20:09:00 +0000

i'm waxing nostalgic today. As the years fly by and the birthdays mount up and the mirror becomes my 'enemy' it is a moment like mary's passing that i truly realize my youth is forever gone. Yet it also reinforces the joy i have in the man i've become. a man who sees social injustice and wants to change it. and who has always fought to do so. a man who sees that all men and women are equal. a man who hates racism and war. all war. all racism. guess this is why i hate republicans also.peter, paul and the beautiful and charming mary travers helped form me and my beliefs through their music and the truth they showed in the songs they chose to sing. they, along with the amazing joan baez, introduced me to bob dylan. hell that would have been enough. they also taught me the natural wonder and beauty of harmony. harmony in music and the harmony in mankind that might exist if we only cared enough and tried a bit harder.one summer night in forest hills stadium...everything was perfect. the weather, the star shine and the moonlight. the music, the singers and my open heart. i was transfixed and transformed as i watched and listened to peter, paul and mary live. for the first time. ''leaving on a jet plane'' was mary's chance to fly solo and shine. allowFullScreen='true' webkitallowfullscreen='true' mozallowfullscreen='true' width='520' height='466' src='https://www.blogger.com/video.g?token=AD6v5dzoddyCDM5_DsjM0dh4fQP5mMRNJV_qn2OddHof-w3EOrF8tHUWgxr2ccWrqBrok3FKQnJnJmGYBf6UfcmGdg' class='b-hbp-video b-uploaded' FRAMEBORDER='0' />''puff the magic dragon'': the ode to marijuana for those of us who wanted it to be that. allowFullScreen='true' webkitallowfullscreen='true' mozallowfullscreen='true' width='520' height='466' src='https://www.blogger.com/video.g?token=AD6v5dzG1lPsXGc9iUn_dLN97xbyeU78WiSMUzmqx_brvRO9_rl_Pm0oErmv_2dFW8ivVWw1mtAY52kH09HFg7ao-w' class='b-hbp-video b-uploaded' FRAMEBORDER='0' />"where have all the flowers gone" :an anti war song that sounded gently but protested loudly. allowFullScreen='true' webkitallowfullscreen='true' mozallowfullscreen='true' width='520' height='466' src='https://www.blogger.com/video.g?token=AD6v5dyHtrMkamfKDQPR0mkHbsnAI2o8BkyKzmlduKUc8LGRJtRojsnb0zTmrf_FnYFiQaHME-7bCI3p886j9Qv9' class='b-hbp-video b-uploaded' FRAMEBORDER='0' />"blowing in the wind" asked the questions our hearts and minds had to answer. unfortunately most people answered wrong. allowFullScreen='true' webkitallowfullscreen='true' mozallowfullscreen='true' width='520' height='466' src='https://www.blogger.com/video.g?token=AD6v5dyBCVeL-zlaxnp3iXg7Gi6zc3Qvq9_OjJXACUZkc0Uzir300VLt_XTGCqjhrFzCysgIL3uMPNne3FMkTmISzg' class='b-hbp-video b-uploaded' FRAMEBORDER='0' />''the times they are a changing'' is the one song my parents wish i had never heard. i took up it's battle cry and there was no turning back. everything changed for me. no society, religion or mass think tank would ever own me again. i started to become a free thinker...a happy intellectual. i became an adult. i have no regrets.5 allowFullScreen='true' webkitallowfullscreen='true' mozallowfullscreen='true' width='520' height='466' src='https://www.blogger.com/video.g?token=AD6v5dxTmSZBE-IdCDkly5yxK1HG7fa__TiC0dNJhsBqmZEOVv2tfcLHv2gpOyDHl1nrHbCwjOfXlF_fy4X6ry1_hQ' class='b-hbp-video b-uploaded' FRAMEBORDER='0' />''day is done'': a lullaby for children and adults alike. and damn if we still don't know when each and every day is still done. allowFull[...]
