Sniglet Of The DayAdulatery – cheating on your wife with a much younger woman who holds you in awe.

Adulatery seems to be something that might be more common than we think, thanks to the media and all those right-wing Republican politicians that think they can get some fresh, young thing on the side. “Oh, but they must be set to a higher standard,” voters say, but as Chris Rock says, “We can’t turn it down if it’s chasing us.” Don’t discount the Democrats on this, because they do it, too, and you don’t have to be a politician to engage in adulatery. It can happen to just about any Western, and probably Far Eastern males, as well. And that younger woman who holds these men in awe, sometimes it might not even be a woman, but guys, if you hold any kind of celebrity status, be in it Washington, London, Tokyo, or Hollywood, keep it on the down low, because in the Information Age, the only thing that moves faster than the speed of light is gossip, and your new paramore might be setting you up for a fall, or maybe just a bail-out. No matter what your ideology, be it Green Party or Tea Party, there is nothing that will take you down faster than Adulatery. In the news, it is always known that bad decisions make good stories.

Dr. Dolittle : He doesn’t just talk to the animals!

Set in a the very modern city of San Francisco, CA, this fresh take on the classic tale is a far cry from the story of the veterinarian from Puddleby-on-the-Marsh. Dr. John Dolittle (Eddie Murphy) is a doctor with an interesting past. When he was a young boy, he had a gift of being able to talk to animals. He usually just had conversations with the family dog (Ellen DeGeneres). After learning about why dogs do things the way they do, and putting himself in a socially awkward situation, John’s father, Archer Dolittle (Ossie Davis), brings a holy man (John Lafayette) to exorcize the “evil demons” that seem to have possessed his son. The ritual scares young John so much, that the dog bites the reverend, and is sent away. John regresses and loses his gift for many decades.

Head of State

In a story of a loser set up to lose even further, Chris Rock takes on the challenge of the electoral process in the comedy, Head of State. This is a fun movie that came out in 2003 which has many similarities to Obama’s run for president in 2008. In this case, life imitates art, but there are many differences, too. Chris Rock plays Mays Gilliam, an alderman from the 9th Ward of Washington D.C. To quote Mays, “It’s a neighborhood so bad, you can get shot while you’re getting shot.” Outside of the 9th Ward, an ironic twist of fate occurs when the current Republican candidates die in a freak plane crash, with about eight weeks left in the race. The party is looking to find a replacement to lose the race so they can set up the head of the party, Senator Bill Arnot, (James Rebhorn) to run in the 2008 race. After seeing a local news story about how Mays rescued an old lady and her cat from a building demolition, the G.O.P. leaders find the perfect person to take the hit.
