Absolute Moral Authority

Because plain old moral authority just wasn’t good enough — a mesablue production


Posted by Wickedpinto on June 14, 2012

Lame controversy.  They say it was just a thing, and were told about it later and figured, “eh, we already got it, just keep  using it.”  But I highly doubt that, the head is noticeably hard to identify because it’s facing mostly away from the camera.   It’s obnoxious and lame but the outrage exists for one reason.

What if it was Obama?”

Which is true, but we can say stuff like that about a lot of things.  Frankly, I think it started as a gag, found props like that is used all the time as in jokes/easter eggs, I think it’s childish by half and lends nothing to the viewing experience so that’s just wasted effort that cost money, money that could have been used to hire better talent.   This kinda stuff is what is expected in  such environments.

UPDATE: Duh, I forgot to add this, which was why I started writing it in the first place.

It’s my understanding that most prosthetics used in film, at least the non-essential ones are provided by interns or low payed staff who are given a bonus for allowing their completely unknown visage to be used within that production.  So who exactly made a plaster bust of Bush so that this prosthetic could exist in the first place, and apparently so common that it’s a money saving measure?
