Hollywood, “24” and The War On Terror


K-Lo suggests that Kiefer Sutherland’s win in the SAG awards might be a case of Hollywood finally catching up on the war on terror. In fact, “24″ co-creator Joel Surnow is openly conservative and part of the reason that the show has a more realistic view of the world than, say, “The West Wing.” Meanwhile, Jonah says the show seems absurd when you consider the real-life counterparts — perhaps he is forgetting a few years back, when liberal-ish President David Palmer’s power-crazed wife more or less tried to take over his administration. Coincidence? I think not. (Another cliche for Rich to ban, that one.)
