Carol Platt Liebau: Batty Beatty

Batty Beatty

The incomparable Mark Steyn toys with Warren Beatty like a cat with a spectacularly dim and wrinkly ball of yarn:

Beatty, by contrast, has come up the hard way, working his way through the long, hard daily grind of Natalie Wood, Leslie Caron, Brigitte Bardot, Cher, Julie Christie, Diane Keaton, Isabelle Adjani . . . He can sympathize with the underclass: He knows how it feels to hit rock bottom -- apparently, it was Madonna's in ''Dick Tracy.'' He understands what it's like to try to make ends meet. Crucially for California, he's sensitive to the needs of immigrants: He appreciates the difficulties European art-house actresses have in finding bankable Hollywood stars prepared to go to bed with them.

Hilarious. That's why I'm going to go hear him speak on December 2 when he's honored at the Claremont Institute's Churchill Dinner on December 2.

Unlike you who has struggled and suffered yourself and therefore empathize more appropriately for the underclass.

3 words Carol: Pot, Kettle, Black.

You don't have to be poor to advocate for the poor. You don't have to be black to advocate for minorities. You have to have decency and compassion. Something you and your conservadroids DON'T have.
