The Left-Wing Politburo That Controls Everything On The Planet neglected to order the Motion Picture Academy to shower Fahrenheit 9/11 with Oscar nominations, so right-wing culture-warrior blowhards, in their desperation, have turned their wrath on ... er, Clint Eastwood's Million Dollar Baby?

Yup. Rush Limbaugh's denouncing it; so is Golden Turkey Award coauthor turned pinched moral scold Michael Medved. Limbaugh actually gave the ending away on his show (as does this story about the denunciations), and you can probably imagine what he's all worked up about if you know what the ending is. It involves a moral taboo I was specifically warned about back in Catholic school, so I'm guessing we'll soon hear from the Catholic League's William Donohue ("Hollywood is controlled by secular Jews who hate Christianity in general and Catholicism in particular ... Hollywood likes anal sex").

This is a tough one -- Eastwood's a Republican, of course. But without Michael Moore to kick around, these guys are in withdrawal.
