"I don't know," he said when asked if he would see the Mel Gibson (news) film about the last days of Jesus' life and its particularly harrowing focus on his crucifixion.
Kerry, a Catholic, said he was worried about the movie's potential anti-Semitism. Some critics have complained that Gibson portrays Jews as responsible for Jesus' death.
"I am concerned," he told reporters. "I don't know if it's there or not but there's a lot of it around now. I think we have to be careful."
Hunh? So is he personally worried about feeling anti-Semitic if he goes to see it? Or does he think that the American public is so unevolved that one movie would set us off on pogroms? Please elaborate.
(Yes, I know he's just parroting the same old blather. But that's why I hate the same old blather - either you insult yourself, or you insult all the Americans who go to see this movie.)
