Dear Hollywood - re: Mahmoud Ahmadinejad

"Dirty Harry" over at Libertas has written a letter to Hollywood with a movie pitch that can't get a sympathetic ear:

Dear Hollywood:

... we both know the massive losses that come with these love letters to al-Queda can’t go on forever. So, here’s my pitch… Here’s how you hold onto your liberal credentials and still make money. Ready? You’re gonna love it. Two words: Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. Say it with me. Let it roll off your tongue: Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. Think about it. He’s today’s Hitler: Anti-Semitic, sexist, homophobic.. Worse than Hitler, he’s a theocrat. You guys hate theocrats. Plus he’s got that little man’s complex and dresses like a man in desperate need of some homosexuals in his country.

So, what say we make him the bad guy once in a while? Not all the time, but here and there. Instead of these money-draining attacks on our troops and illiberal criticisms of our desire to liberate millions — which is so 2006 — let’s make Mahmoud the whipping boy — the common enemy — the target of some brutal onscreen butt-kicking. What do you say?

Me? I’m excited. I think we got something here: A win-win. If I knew the words I’d sing Kumbaya. Look at us, Hollywood. You and I, arm in– What? No? You’re telling me, no? You got a guy killing gays and building nukes to exterminate the “Jooooz!” and you’re telling me, no? You’re telling me that you’re still gonna go after Bush and America? I don’t understand, I thought… I thought we… Okay. Well, thanks for listening.

Sounds to me like a pitch for "Queer Eye for the Islamist Guy!"
