Sure, once upon a time the guy brought the world Annie Hall and people threw the "genius" word around. But since then, Woody has been more creep that genius, what with his adopted daughter fucking and recent string of shit movies.
His recent comments only solidify this thought:
”...Obama should be dictator..."
“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,” the director and alleged child toucher (Mia Farrow has alleged that while married to her Allen not only seduced her teenaged adopted daughter Soon-Yi- whom he eventually married- but also touched her 7 year old adopted daughter Dylan) told Spanish language newspaper La Vanguardia.
Allen went on "...it would be good…if he could be a dictator for a few years because he could do a lot of good things quickly."
Because it always ends so well when dictators are in charge...
But then again, Hitler did get an awful lot of good done in those early years... ya know... before that whole killing Jews, sacking Poland and France, and terrorizing all of Europe thing...I understand that Allen's comments were done in hyperbole; the exasperated words of an Obama supporter who is troubled by the President's ineffective first few years (in as far as the ability for his opposition to water down if not all together stop many of his policy ideas). But for some reason the idea of one American citizen saying something as insane as wishing for a dictator (and knowing that his single retarded voice represents the voice of hundreds if not thousands of other retarded voices) sends a cold chill down my spine.
