Tale of two quotes

Over at Random Acts of Patriotism he quotes one misguided individual:
"I am pleased with Obama. I think he’s brilliant. The Republican Party should get out of his way and stop trying to hurt him. It would be good…if he could be a dictator for a few years because he could do a lot of good things quickly." - Woody Allen
and a much maligned Iowan:
It is a paradox that every dictator has climbed to power on the ladder of free speech. Immediately on attaining power each dictator has suppressed all free speech except his own. -Herbert Hoover
I doubt that any of my readers would have trouble in figuring out which quote is to be lauded.

Woody Allen's Proposal

I would be deeply insulted and disgusted if Woody "Pedophile" Allen stood up for me, but I don't think I'm in any danger of that happening. Barack probably adores him as a cinematic genius because once he made a movie that had one good laugh in it. Celebrities' opinions are valuable again why?

The are valuable in that they reinforce the notion that their opinions are shite.
