I wasn't going to do this - but for the love of God.  Twitter, and now all the media are flapping about Meryl Streep and her fabulous speech at the golden globes.

"It was typical: We're so enlightened, and you all are so stupid and vile.  I thought her opening was particularly funny. 
"Thank you, Hollywood Foreign Press. Just to pick up on what Hugh Laurie said: You and all of us in this room really belong to the most vilified segments in American society right now. Think about it: Hollywood, foreigners and the press."

Most vilified - Hollywood and foreigners and the press.  Vilified by whom?    Only recently has the non-leftist contingent vilified Hollywood - mostly for those condescending videos - they should be vilified, they were urging the electorate to abandon their duty to the voters. They were telling people that to be decent they need to vote the correct way.

And Foreigners - by which she means criminals - people here illegally I presume.  I don't remember anyone saying anything nasty about legal immigrants. Nobody really cares about legal immigrants, so it has to be the illegal aliens - not that she would ever call them that.

Ah, and the press who she extolled...

"We need the principled press to hold power to account, to call him on the carpet for every outrage. That’s why our founders enshrined the press and its freedoms in the Constitution."
Yes, we do need that - but we're not going to get it.  I mean...
Seriously?   I can't remember a single complaint out of Hollywood about the press failing to hold Obama to account.  Anyone?  Well maybe from Nick Searcy, Adam Baldwin, and James Woods. But the rest of them? Nary a peep.

And the Constitution - isn't  it that old outdated document that we're supposed to forget about or reinterpret or something? 

The total lack of self-awareness is mindboggling.
