Peggy Noonan has a penchant for rhetoric, and sometimes she can be downright harsh. You should check out her piece on George Clooney’s acceptance speech at last Sunday’s Oscar ceremony, â€œBoy in a Bubble: What George Clooney doesn’t know about life.â€ Hereâ€™s a devastating snippet:
George Clooney is Hollywood now. He is charming and beautiful and cool, but he is not Orson Welles . . . Orson Welles was an artist. George Clooney is a fellow who read an article and now wants to tell us the truth, if we can handle it.
The Missional Baptist Blog thinks I was pretty harsh in my critique of George Clooney in my Baptist Press article â€œThe Gospel according to Hollywood.â€ Well, at least Iâ€™m not as mean as Peggy Noonan! 🙂
