Lars Larson on Ed Asner and OR Film & Video Board

So, this is Ted Kulongoski’s idea of a great appointment to the Oregon Film & Video Board?

You know what the Film & Video Board is all about? Trying to get more film and video business for Oregon. After all the movie business spends a lot of money and Oregon’s a beautiful place, why wouldn’t they want to come here? Oh, I forgot, high minimum wage, bad government regulation, incompetent local government. No, no, they are probably not going to want to come here.

But, Governor Kulongoski has the Film and Video Board designed to increase participation. And, who does he put on it now? Ed Asner. Remember him from Mary Tyler Moore and Lou Grant? The only problem is he’s a hardcore socialist, a member of the Democratic Socialists of America, supporter of the Sandinistas, and, also, a guy who has backed up a cop killer by the name of Mumia Abu-Jamal.

And a man who believes in the conspiracy theories, that is, he believes that the government helped plan and knew about 9/11 before it happened. Now he’s on the Oregon government Film and Video Board. Bravo, Governor Ted!
