Wheel of Fortune’s Pat Sajak opines:
There’s another possibility; one that seems crazy on the surface, but does provide an explanation for the silence, and is also in keeping with the political climate in Hollywood. Is it just possible that there are those who are reluctant to criticize an act of terror because that might somehow align them with President Bush, who stubbornly clings to the notion that these are evil people who need to be defeated? Could the level of hatred for this President be so great that some people are against anything he is for, and for anything he is against?
There are things in the world that should be hated, indeed. But what does it mean to hate things like murder, rape, fraud–as well as the President of the United States? Should not hate be reserved for the truly evil, at risk of otherwise diminishing the moral value of the concept?
