Can't It Be November Yet?

Just when I think political writing can't get any sillier, here comes New York Post film critic Kyle Smith, claiming that Barack Obama is just like Cyrus from The Warriors. Smith draws a lot of laughably tenuous connections between the two figures (along with a lot of snarky lines that could have come out of Writing Like a Self-Impressed Right-Wing Hack for Dummies), but his argument basically boils down to, "Every time I see that black politician stumping for votes, he reminds me of a gang leader inciting violent revolution."

Film critics are losing their jobs left and right these days; are you telling me that the Post doesn't have any fat to cut?
