I liked hangover, but wasn't one of those people who thought it was "the best comedy ever". Certainly weaker than individual episodes of "Arrested Development". (And I certainly don't remember quoting anything from it...) Unlike: There's always money in the banana stand...

My wife & I both watch Mad Men. We don't watch it for the masculinity, we watch it for the characters... who fully embrace their loathsome status but can't quite see the writing on the wall.

You can see the change occurring in them, but they don't know what it is yet. All they know is that they're not content with the status quo... and that resentment keeps building, and building ....

Here's what I've gathered by trolling conservative blogs: Who cares? These people are evil terrorists, and yet you're fighting for their rights? What you're doing isn't even that harsh? I mean, there's no permanent wounds there? Hell, our guys do the same thing for training! The concept that everyone has an inalienable set of rights, that it's all based on extensive (equally damaging) psychological damage, or that the culmination of these techniques causes the damage does not get acknowledged. And if you can't acknowledge that, then where's the harm in it?
