Quote of the Day

[Trigger warning re: Polanski and sexual assault.]

"I have had my share of dramas and joys, as we all have, and I am not going to try to ask you to pity my lot in life. I ask only to be treated fairly like anyone else."—Roman Polanski, in a statement he released yesterday, in which he repeatedly exclaims "I can remain silent no longer!"

You hear that, everyone? Mr. Polanski wants to be treated fairly, just like anyone else—so let's build a time machine and go back 30 years and, instead of letting him spend three decades as a fugitive getting rich from making highly-acclaimed movies with an endless stream of willing movie stars and attending celebrity parties and getting fancy awards and complaining about having to await possible extradition in a Swiss fucking chateau, we'll THROW HIS ASS IN THE CLINK like anyone else who admitted drugging and raping a 13-year-old child would have been.

Fucking asshole.
