What Is Robert Redford's Problem With America?

Robert Redford has a new movie out, called "Lion's for Lambs" and get this: It's critical of the war. According to The New York Times, this brave director is bracing for a backlash.

From whom?

Hollywood? The media? A pride of penguins? Other members of The Hair Club?


The only time Redford would ever feel a backlash is if he made "The Milagro Beanfield War Part 2: Now With More Beans." Or, if he actually said something nice about America's role in the world — don't hold your breath.

So what's Redford's beef with the U.S.? He says it our "patterns of behavior." When you look at Watergate, Iran-Contra and now Iraq, "winning is everything."

Redford says this is wrong. Well, unless you run a film festival. Redford hates winning, but awards trophies to folks in his competition. So, if you want to win a war, you're bad. But if you want to win an award for a stupid film, you're good.

But at least Redford is honest: Hollywood careers benefit from America losing. This is why Redford makes no mention of anything good we've done: Like getting rid of Hitler, ending the Cold War or cancelling "Joey."

But here's a tip, Bobby: Al Qaeda and bin Laden want to win. That's the part you keep missing, but we can't afford to miss that. What we've been missing instead is your movies. Which have sucked since the Ford administration.

What does all this have do to you? Well, Redford is 71 and he looks like a cross between an old baseball mitt and a dried apple refrigerator magnet. The ultimate consequence of wishing America bad? You lose your looks.

And that's my gut feeling.
