Good thinkin'

Ed Brayton notes that:
ABC, in a stunningly obvious move, has pulled the plug on a forthcoming Mel Gibson-directed miniseries on the holocaust.
That a Holocaust denier and anti-Semite was producing such a series is unfortunate. Though I suppose it may explain why it would have been a mini-series. After a few hours, fictional Germans genteelly worrying about the few unfortunate Jews who happen to die in fictionally humane and clean work camps would get tedious. As would their regular insistence that they would never use the showers or other enclosed spaces to gas anyone.

ABC claims he never sent them a script, but maybe that was his little joke.

When asked to comment, Gibson replied: "F*****g Jews... The Jews are responsible for all the wars in the world. …Are you a Jew?" He then asked "What are you looking at, nougat knickers?"
