Tweet of the Day, @jpodhoretz Is Not Over-Selling This Video edition.

To mangle Shaenon Garrity: why does Hollywood persist in showing me boring things, when it could be doing stuff like this all the time?

So, apparently Shia LaBeouf reads RedState.

Only apparently ironically. The denouement of LaBeouf’s descent into plagiarism:

The Twitter apologies continued until New Year’s Eve, when LaBeouf wrote on Twitter that he was sorry for “offending you for thinking I was being serious instead of accurately realizing I was mocking you,” a statement that was taken from a Red State article and that declared a strange sort of victory. But none of this started off as an attempt at ironic plagiarism.

At least, we hope. Personally, I liked Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull more than most of my colleagues, but the various Transformers movies left a bad taste in my mouth.

PS: I actually don’t want to be too hard on the kid.  Nobody’s paying him to think, which is apparently why he’s so bad at it…
