Idiot
Everybody's talking about this so I thought I'd throw my two cents in.

Michael Richards is an idiot...but...if the guy, or guys, that apparently were the target(s) of his tirade in that comedy club get ANY money for it...then I will know that the world has truly gone crazy.(of course I already KNOW the world has gone crazy..but..just sayin)

Yes, it was mean and pretty awful the way Michael Richards acted and he shouldn't have done it, but, guess what? Life sucks sometimes. We encounter mean and cruel idiots who may just hurt our feelings and insult our intelligence as well as offend us. Do we deserve money for that? Um, no. In my opinion, no. You chalk it up to life experience and you move on.

Instead of Michael Richards running around trying to play major clean up and trying to save face with the public, perhaps he just needs to contact those he offended and try to make a sincere apology. *shrug* Eh, I don't know. That probably won't work, but he should try.

In the mean time, I won't be able to watch Seinfeld, one of my most favorite shows EVER, the same again. *sigh*

    I think that the guy who the character was based on said it best-Michael Richards is an actor, he said the things, the character did not-there's no reason you still can't enjoy the film.

    Stop the world, I wanna get off! Get over it, the guy made an ass of himself, so who hasn't? I say strike one...move on.

    George Bush hasn't said or done a single thing right and he gets to run the whole asylum.

    I'm still going to watch. I think too many get sensitive but they forget that although he was an idiot and said racial things, he was probably just trying to push the limits of humor.

    I know many comedians that have done this--they just choose to use a different topic. I've seen so many go overboard with things but nobody says anything because the topic is not as personal maybe.

    I don't know...I just think too often it gets muddled by the media and by reactions and that's unfortunate.

    Just found your blog....love the name. I can't wait to read more of your archives. I had to make a comment on the MR thing.....how many times have you watched an African American comedian who bashes their own race and the audience, primarily African American is falling all over themselves laughing? Who is suing then? Noone... Who is offended? Noone. Not that MR was right by any means but why are people not offended by the African American comedian bashing his own race? Just my .02 fwiw

    What would they get money for? I'm lost....

    You can't sue for being offended.

    If you could, I'd be even broker than I already am... I'm sure I've offended more than my share of people....
