"conspiracy theorists like Ron Paul and xenophobic blowhards like Pat Buchanan "

right , so a guy who worked in the reagan white house and a guy with the most conservative voting record IN HISTORY are wackos,  but joe lieberman and john mcain are normal.  now i've seen everything.  open borders, high taxes, late trimester abortion and wars of choice are mainstream conservatism.  we are really in bizarro world.

next you'll be telling me the WMD are in Syria and that saddam and al queda were buddies.

and I'm not a leftist.  I 'm a libertarian and very very conservative.

Uhm... did it occur to you that Republicans spin their version of the truth, too? is like citing the New York Post as a news source, and I would suggest that it's biased.  You think "mainstream" media is 90% Democrat, that's quite a lofty percentage, but interesting considering how Bill Clinton was barbecued by the largely Democratic media... I think the "biased" media angle is an excuse for the significantly bad press the Republicans have gotten these last several years, not to mention thru much of the 20th century!  But it works both ways and is ultimately relevant to what or whom is newsworthy.  Anybody remember DEWEY DEFEATS TRUMAN?  Nothing's changed as far as human nature.  Selling is even more important to America than partisan politics.

Well, I dare say it's biased! The very idea that a news source could be otherwise strikes me as a rather quaintly silly notion. Still, I never saw Clinton "barbecued" as you claim, except in the sense that the entertainers of the time did make a lot of bad jokes about him. Remember how people went around claiming the Oklahoma City Bombing was an "inside job" intended to boost Clinton's approval ratings? Remember how they called him a "war criminal" for his "illegal" war in Kosovo and harped on what a genocidal dictator he was with all his war-mongering, akin to Hitler? Remember how Ken "The Christmas Starr" was praised and lauded all over the press for months for his endless investigations into Clinton skulduggery? Me neither. Actually, I continue to hear flimsy rationalizations for all his nonsense to this day.

I might also point out the the New York Post IS a news source, just as the New York Times is a news source. The former has far more credibility with me than the latter, of course, just as Michelle Malkin has far more credibility with me than, for example, Connie Chung, Dan Rather, Jayson Blair, or Keith Olbermann.

next you'll be telling me the WMD are in Syria and that saddam and al queda were buddies.

There's evidence that they are and there's documented proof that they were, respectively; but as I'm sure you know already, those satellite photos and translated Iraqi documents must all have been forged by those of us who are part of the great Zionist world bankers' conspiracy. We sure can't put anything past you, can we?

A director who hasn't directed a sci-fi movie in almost 25 years doesn't really have much say on the state of current sci-fi films...

Last week, I somehow ended up on the IMDB page for Sunshine.
After following a few links, I figured it must be about an astronaut who goes nuts & starts killing off the rest of the crew.

I thought to myself, "How many times have I seen this before?"
Off the top of my head, Event Horizon, Supernova, The Dark Side of The Moon, Life Pod, & Murder in Space.

Alien certainly stands out as a great movie, but it's not exactly the first movie about an alien parasite terrorizing the crew of a spaceship.
