Heartbroken: why do my heros do that?

Brandon Darby wonders Why ‘Game Change’ Producer Tom Hanks Must Destroy Sarah Palin.

“From “Bosom Buddies” to “Forrest Gump,” and from the European theater to the shores of Iwo Jima, Hanks captivated me. His interviews on MSNBC sounded so patriotic, and I held him as the standard for what a patriotic Democrat looked like before the far Left propulsion of the Obama presidency. My friends even know me to say I wish the Democratic Party looked like that again; a patriotic ideology that simply believed in more government-based solutions.

“Something changed in Hanks. As the producer for the anti-Sarah Palin film “Game Change,” Hanks left the pedestal I had placed him on and entered the world of being nothing more than a merchant of Leftist smear.

“Seriously, how does Hanks portend to to idolize America’s Greatest Generation as he’s stated in interviews about “Band of Brothers” while simultaneously supporting leaders who would make our grandfathers and their WWII brothers weep? How can a “patriot” support a president like Obama who would refer to the Constitution of the Unites States as “some rigid idea of what government should or shouldn’t do”?

“Deciding to engage in a lying, disingenuous smear on Palin is even a step further into his ideological vomit. Hanks, with all his money, power, goodwill and influence, has chosen to join his Democratic friends in attacking a strong conservative woman with an impeccable record of success and service.”

That is the question for the age. When the opportunity arises to explore the question with someone in such a camp, even with a non-celebrity, the results can be ugly. The behavior one sees is in Dr. Santy’s realm. You don’t want to explore that territory without being properly prepared.
