Roger Ebert's War By: Debbie Schlussel
FrontPageMagazine.com | Tuesday, January 24, 2006

It's official. ROGER EBERT HAS DECLARED WAR ON ME and Ann Coulter, too.

Check this out. My movie reviews must be getting to movie critic Roger Ebert.

Liberal Film Critic Roger Ebert:
Gives Mighty Thumbs Down to Conservative Film Critic Debbie Schlussel

Ebert and I have had it out over his buddy, Islamic terrorist, Ibrahim Parlak (here and here). He even cited me in one of his movie reviews, in response.

But now Roger Ebert has posted this on his website. It's written by RogerEbert.com editor, Jim Emerson. And not to spoil his little game, but I wrote all the reviews cited, except Good Night & Good Luck and The Passion of the Christ.

Even though I appreciate the exposure -- not to mention the ire of all things Ebert, including people and fans -- I think I should ask my lawyers if quoting extensively from nine of my movie reviews violates my copyright, since it's well more than fair use. If he was going to use so much of my work, couldn't he, at least, have linked to my reviews (instead of his own), or my website.

But, at least, Ebert and company quoted me accurately. I stand by each and every movie review to which they refer, even the excerpts they posted -- which I must say are good representations of what I wrote about those films.

So does this mean Ann and I can now have our own movie review show? I guarantee we'd rival Ebert and Roeper in the ratings. People get tired of hearing two middle-aged liberal dudes wax ad absurdum about the merits of "Million Dollar Kevorkian" and Yasser Shlemielberg's "Munich".

Ebert and Emerson have a couple of things wrong:
1) I have NEVER "smooched O'Reilly's rear".
To the contrary on that.
2) As much as they like using the theme song from "The Patty Duke Show," (Identical Twin Cousins?) Ann and I don't look alike at all. She's about a foot taller than I am. I'm only 5' 2" (well, 5' 6" in the heels I usually wear).

But it's nice to see that, like a recent USA Today, Ebert and Jim, too, have declared war on White Blonde Women. Well, at least liberals are consistent. And monotone.
