Me? Meh. Take her or leave her. She was funny in There's Something About Mary, in a stupid bimbo kinda way. Which makes me wonder how much "acting" she was doing.
Maddox however, author of the Best Page In The Universe, feels quite differently. Ms. Diaz currently has like, this totally rad MTV show called like, ya know like, trippin' yo'.
Maddox doesn't like the show either. A brief excerpt-
"Just when you thought MTV couldn't get more annoying, they give Cameron Diaz her own show called "Trippin':"
Note that the name of the show is "Trippin'" and not "Tripping" because the addition of the letter "g" would not be consistent with the views of MTV's urban youth demographic who tend to frown upon linguistic formalities such as proper enunciation. I mean, proper 'nunciation, yo!
Each episode starts out with me imagining how awesome it would be to punch Cameron Diaz in the face. Nothing too showy, just a quick crack to the jaw to make a believer out of her. I suspect she has a glass jaw like most of the children I fight. Man, just thinking about landing a left hook is giving me a boner. Back to the show though."
The proper definition of the hypocrisy that encompasses this show and Cameron Diaz would be the term-Limousine Liberal.
"Limousine liberal is a derogatory American political term for a wealthy liberal person that expresses a deep concern for the poor, yet does not spend any considerable portion of his/her wealth to help poor people. It can also mean a wealthy person who does in some way want to help the poor, but is oblivious to the costs of doing so. The term was coined by Democratic New York City mayoral hopeful Mario Procaccino to describe Mayor John Lindsay and his well-heeled Manhattan backers. Procaccino criticized Lindsay for favoring unemployed blacks over working-class white ethnics.
In the 1970s in the United States, the term was repeatedly applied to wealthy liberal supporters of open-housing and school busing. In the case of Boston, supporters of busing, such as Senator Edward Kennedy and Judge Arthur Garrity, either sent their own children to private school or lived in affluent suburbs. To residents of poor South Boston, suburbanite Garrity's requirement that their children attend schools with blacks, but refusal to do the same with his own children, seemed like blatant hypocrisy."
My favorite Limousine liberal is probably Arianna Huffington...Here's some of her latest blog posts, sort of...not really... Don't thank me- I'm a giver....
