  • Saw it this past Saturday. It seems the writers were intentional about making Tony Stark the biggest free market mind of the century. I guess that’s because you can’t make the largest weapons manufacturer a liberal and still be believable.

    Actually, fun fact: Robert Downy Jr. is a conservative. He’s got a picture of himself with President and Mrs. Bush in his kitchen and he’s said that you can’t go to prison and come out a bleeding heart.

    Was it a love letter to Reagan? Ummm, I wouldn’t got that far. In the end, the weapons contractors are still the bad guys and the military is inept and wholly dependent on private citizen. On the other hand, its supports the 2nd Amendment in a big way and decries government intervention in private affairs. Take from that what you will

    Weapons contractors (any government contractor, really, and I have been one) are certainly capable of being bad guys. And the military, like any other government agency, IS often inept.

    Good point, kerner: Interesting that conservatives attack the intrinsic incompetence of government agencies with boundless alacrity except in the case of the military. The military, apparently, transcends incompetence and bureaucratic malaise.

    Which is of course false.
