Blowing Raspberries 

(The other side of) Hollywood can't help himself.

The setting: the annual Raspberry awards, "Hollywood's least coveted trophies" for cinematic stinkers, given out by 700 members of the nonprofit Golden Raspberry Award Foundation.

The good news: "Fahrenheit 9/11" scoops four Raspberry anti-awards.

The bad news: for all the wrong reasons. The recipients: President Bush for the worst male performance; President Bush again for the worst screen couple together with Condi Rice or "My Pet Goat" children's book; also, "Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld was named worst supporting actor and pop star Britney Spears won for worst supporting actress for a clip in which she declares blind faith in Bush's policies while popping chewing gum."

Hmmmm, which one would I rather have? My side winning the presidency, or the ability to make pathetic political points by giving out oh-so-hilarious awards? That's tough one. I'll have to think about it.
