Falling Down

"Watch the pretty lady sing the scary song, over and over again"

The Scarlett Johansson video, for some reason featuring Salman Rushdie. Remember when "the left" used to defend freedom of speech against death threats, fascism and Dark Ages theocratic misogyny? Now we have banned hate speech we do not need to worry about that sort of thing anymore, of course.*

But still, good times. Good times (hat tip to Agent Bedhead).

* When you outlaw hate speech only outlaws will have speech. Something like that.

Update: WWTDD comments:

... Scarlett Johansson has set the new bar for awfulness with her Tom Waits cover of "Falling Down". The only way this experience could be any worse is if the monitor grew arms and started stabbing you.

She sounds like Sinead O'Connor's far less talented sibling.
