Nixon's Memoirs: Criminal Discontent

Criminal Discontent

The New York Post has this story about the star of one of the shows I regularly watch, Law and Order: Criminal Intent.

It seems Vincent D'Onofrio, who plays a cop I love to hate so much that I end up rooting for the bad guy, is even a bigger jerk in real life.

This clown got himself so worked up over the election results, that he actually FAINTED on the set. Now, some outlets are saying that it was due to some strenuous climbing he had to do on set, and I can sympathize with that because I get short of breath taking the garbage to the curb.

But, according to this article, Vinny would pitch a B-F about politics so often that it held up filming, and the producers had to put up a "No Political talk" sign because of him.

What is with these people? Sure, I was sad when Clinton won in '92, but that night I was singing Bobby McFerrin's "Don't Worry, Be Happy!" on a karaoke machine at the Republican watch party. And in '96? Well, sure, sad again, but I knew it was Billy's last term, and apparantly he did a little more celebrating than I did. Plus, I knew with a Republican congress, and a fair Supreme court, that our Nation's checks and balances were in place. Clinton did some to help, and a lot to hurt this country, but in the end, we survived.

My theory is that, on the whole, those on the liberal side are the ones who depend on government, and expect to be taken care of by it, therefore, when their guy isn't in power, they feel abandoned, and pitch a fit. On the other hand, those of us who lean to the right, tend to be more self-sufficient, "rugged individualists" as Rush says. Therefore, if our guy loses, oh well, tough luck, guess I'll have to work harder.

So, Vincent, please, take a chill pill, rest up, and get back on the set. You ARE a fabulous performer, and I enjoy your work. But, to paraphrase Laura Ingraham: "Shut up and act!"

No matter what else you want to say about D'Onofrio, you got to give him props for being in one of the coolest movies of all time- Full Metal Jacket. Although he did blow his brains out half way through.
