Winner: Stupid Things Said About Polanski Today Contest

Peter Fonda:
Actor Peter Fonda said he thought "celebrating the arrest of Osama bin Laden and not the arrest of Polanski" was far more important.
What I hate most about that comment, and there are many loathsome things about it, is the implicit idea that focusing on Polanski is, somewhere, taking someone's eyes off the ball. Osama bin Laden might slip through our fingers while we're all looking at Polanski!

It's called multitasking. And, luckily, justice is not a finite resource. There's no chance of using it up on the wrong guy.
