The War Is Nearly Over
I refer, of course, to the battle for sympathetic political labels. "Anti-war" is a pretty good label, but was there ever a chance that the other side would opt for the label of "pro-war"? NO! So now we have the anti-war movement pitted against pro-American rallies. Advantage - America!
And on the question of symbolic protests at the Oscars - apparently Susan Sarandon and others were wearing a small pin meant to depict a flying dove. OK, I didn't really think the pin was a Screaming Eagle, but I had some idea that it might be a chickenhawk. And why ABC didn't feature tighter close-ups of Ms. Sarandon's chest is an ongoing source of puzzlement.
The NY Times describes the symbolic battle
While actors deliberated over whether to wear American flags or peace symbols in their lapels (most chose neither),..
So what is with "or"? Hello, deep thinkers of the anti-liberation movement - maybe someone could wear both.
