Middle America has shitty taste

Before this year's Oscars, we heard plenty from cultural conservatives about how Hollywood was ignoring the heartland, rewarding films that most people had not seen. By extension, they argue that commercial success and quality are somehow related.

"(T)he Hollywood elite takes great pride in thumbing its collective nose at those of us who choose not to waste our time and money on some of this year's most hyped films, such as 'Brokeback Mountain,' 'Transamerica' and 'Capote,'" according to a local PR maven who wrote an op-ed about the 2006 Oscars.

So who are the big moneymakers of 2006? Nothing but quality thus far: "The Pink Panther," "Big Momma's House 2," "Faliure to Launch," "Madea's Family Reunion," "Final Destination 3" and "The Shaggy Dog."

Imagine if, say, the Concerned Women for America selected Academy Award nominees:

"And the winner for Best Actor, Tim Allen."

If I knew how to spell out the shudder sound, I would've written it here.
