Why He’s Insane Liberal of the Week: for using his new film, “Lion for Lambs” to promote anti-Bush, anti-American, left-wing zealotry. In “Lambs” Redford, a longtime Hollywood liberal whose made his fortune here in America, plays a college professor trying to motivate a politically ambivalent student in a flick loaded with typical leftist clichés including an “evil Republican” senator (played by Tom Cruise) with plans to bomb Afghanistan. Yet, despite its star power (Meryl Streep also appears as a cynical liberal news journalist) “Lion for Lambs” has been reviewed by many as so lame and lopsided that it seems destined to bomb just like recent leftist drivel “Rendition” and “In The Valley Of Elah” did. Indeed, the Sundance Kid (who if I recall correctly reneged on his promise to move to Ireland if Bush was elected) is probably too busy flying in one of his high-priced jets to realize that movie goers have long tired of films drenched in idiot liberal propoganda.
