I have no opinion on Sandra Bullock's and Jesse James's marriage, or its collapse, or its survival, or any of the incidents that have led to a rumored divorce—and I will continue to have no opinion on these subjects.

However, I do feel compelled to acknowledge Jesse James' apparent fascination with (or tolerance for, or whatever description would be appropriate) white supremacy and its practitioners, just long enough that I might say: No.

Donning an SS cap while doing the Nazi salute and miming Hitler's mustache is not "a joke," it is not "funny," and it not awesome or clever or edgy to pose for a picture au Nazi for the "shock value."

I can't believe this is a post I need to write.
