Can We Get a New PR Team?

My interest was piqued by the first line of this Slate review of the new film Shooter, which describes it as a “libertarian action thriller.” Then I realized that by “libertarian” they mean “about a survivalist crackpot who blows up lots of government stuff.”

    I just noticed that a tagline for that review on another page on the same site describes the movie as a “liberal action thriller,” as if whoever wrote that one isn’t even familiar with the word “libertarian.” As Jimmy Durante would say, How humiliatin’!
