I know. It’s a stretch. But that is the first question that jumped into my head when I came across this New York Times article about how Roman Polanski’s U.S. legal team has hired lawyer Reid Weingarten, who is “a well-known Washington power player and close friend and associate of Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr.”
Because, you know, Glenn Beck’s recent track record for bringing down Obama administration officials is pretty impressive. But also, because the media loves Roman Polanski. Not love as in bedazzled and supportive — so far the media seems fairly split down the middle, actually — but love as in Polanski makes great copy and is enormously polarizing and he’s currently the only thing everyone (but the President) wants to talk about. The Eric Holder angle seems like a great way for Beck to get in on the action (or retaliate to a not-so-happy official White House blog post!). That is, when he’s not — according to the hyperbole-stricken Bette Midler — starting a Rwanda-Like Civil War in the U.S. (below).
