Hollywood Solidarity

If you were one of the 11 people that took the time to watch the Academy Awards a few days ago, you may have noticed small orange ribbons and bracelets being worn by a number of the celebrities.

So, which higher cause do you suppose these ribbons supported? Cancer research? The starving in Africa? AIDS?

Nope. Nothing quite so banal as any of those. As Cassy Fiano writes in Wizbang,

Orange ribbons and bracelets -- to represent the glittering celebrities showing their solidarity with terrorists at Guantanamo Bay.
The one cause they could come together to support was anti-American.

I'm shocked!
