WTF Indeed: Because they are cheap to buy?


Sounds about right.

Because they are just like them, almost legit, in a sort of obscure sub genre of notoriety.

"Seagal has been married four times and has seven kids (and appears to be pregnant with an 8th)."

That's actually a pretty good line.
Also Putin is everything that right wingers claim Obama is.

Is Sheriff Joe a fascist government? I'd say yes.

I wonder, in the case of Seagal, if there's a strong market for his kinds of shiatty, straight-to-DVD movies in a country like Russia.  I have no idea how distribution of American films works in Russia, but since the movies are pretty cheap to begin with in the US, I could see there being Russian clearinghouses that just buy up a bunch of cheap US DVD titles, slap some subtitles on them, and release them by the bucketload.
So maybe Seagal is bigger over there than we think.

Also, if you look closely at some of his movies, you can see that Seagal actually runs like a little kid.  His draws his hands up close to his rib cage, keeps his wrists limp, kind of trots, and his hands just flop around.  It's hilarious once you notice it.

didnt read the article, but i assume they'd love to know how to distract the public with manufactured stories about celebrities so that they can go and do whatever they want while people aren't paying attention

No, he's everything the right wingers claim they WANT.
