So what, exactly, did Danny DeVito do wrong?  

Really, what did he do wrong?  

All I know is that, after a night on the town with George "Sex on Legs" Clooney, he went on The View the next morning and dissed Bush.  Mister Thirty-One Percent.  If the only person dissed was Bush, who cares?  (Besides the Republican-worshipping US corporate media, that is.)

Let's go back ten years.  Imagine if DeVito had dissed Bill Clinton.  The GOP/Media Complex would be throwing rose petals at his feet.  There wouldn't be any made-up "controversy" over this, even though Clinton was more popular with the American people in 1996 than Bush is in 2006.

Sheesh.

If DeVito had dissed Clinton in '96 instead of Bush in '06, would the media still have treated him like an ax murderer?

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
