Chug! Chug! Chug! Tooot! Tooot!
This morning I caught part of Richard Dreyfuss giving a kick-ass speech to the National Press Club (which doesn’t have the transcript available for non-members).
I have it on good authority that Dreyfuss is a pompous jerk to, say, people like wait staff at posh LA eateries who grow up to be event promoters in Florida. But, if I might take the liberty of speaking on behalf of all service personnel everywhere: all forgiven, now, for this speech, which was an impassioned plea for understanding, accountability and for saving this nation before it is too late.
He should run for president; unlike the other actor who did so, he was once on the Hollywood A-list.
There are causes worth fighting for even if you know that you will lose,” Dreyfuss said during a speech at the National Press Club. “Unless you are willing to accept torture as part of a normal American political lexicon, unless you are willing to accept that leaving the Geneva Convention is fine and dandy, if you accept the expansion of wiretapping as business as usual, the only way to express this now is to embrace the difficult and perhaps embarrassing process of impeachment.
If any reader knows where the full transcript of this speech might be accessed, please let me know.
