    That's what made it so funny.

    I still have to see that one.

    Some Americans certainly DO CARE, but most of us do not care much.

    I know, they can get tremendous crowds fired up and call themselves "Nasty Women" and all that.

    But, in the end, most Americans want those "cultural elites" to do what they do and we'll appreciate them for THAT.
    You actually think you speak for most Americans?
    Not even close.

    The last guy knew the importance of giving artists a platform.

    That Whorange Menace in the White House is nothing but trailer park trash with a large bank account.

    Thank you. I need to see that musical. The last video gives me goosebumps.

    Sure. You could probably write a Ph.D. thesis on the political themes in the movie 'Animal House'. For example, you could chart the rise to power of Senator Bluto Blutarsky, from his early days as a leader of the I Phelta Thigh fraternity. [Or whatever the name of their fraternity was.] Actually, there were a LOT of political themes in that movie. Like the girl in the bar who says she was majoring in "primitive cultures" right before the black guy on stage was singing "Ooh Mau Mau!" Lots of folks didn't catch that sly dig. But the impassioned speech by Otter, putting down Dean Wormer for attacking the entire American Way of Life, was pretty hard to miss.

    Like I said, you could make a Ph.D. thesis out of it all.

    I'm sorry, but having underage girls available for Ted in the Rose Garden is just highly, HIGHLY inappropriate, on many, MANY levels.

    Shame on you for even suggesting it.

    Great art should comfort the afflicted, and afflict the comfortable.

    No different from any other major industry.
    Also the one industry that never has a trade deficit.

    If I did something worthy of an invite to the White House, which would be a huge honor, I wouldn't go if Trump was president. The man is a disgrace.

    I would respectfully ask for a raincheck until the next administration is in power.

    Respectfully, as in "Would you kindly stick it up your arse for now?"

    The Kennedy Center honors artists. The Led Zeppelin tribute in 2012 was awesome. I can't see Trump rocking out to Led Zeppelin like the Obama's. Obama's administration was the last time the US was cool.
