Robert Redford's Sundancing Into Your Town

Thursday, 26 May 2005 12:00 AM

Remember right before the bell rang and the teacher would ask if there were any questions? There was always that one guy whose hand would shoot up despite the eye rolls, rib jabs and finger flicks he'd suffer.

As reported by the Asbury Park Press, in between the patented long guitar riffs and echoey blankets of sound, fans who flock to today's U2 concerts have to put up with the following from Bono:

The rocker also admonished President Bush and British Prime Minster Tony Blair, saying, "You lead and we'll follow."

The Left Coast Report says Bono might try giving his fans something more in line with what they paid for - like maybe a concert.

2. Robert Redford's Cineplex Plans

Not content with merely having a foundation, festival, film catalog, resort property, cable TV channel and tap shoe line to his name, the ever tawny Robert Redford now wants to lay claim to a movie theater chain as well.

Redford's Sundance Group oversees the Sundance Village, Sundance Catalog, Sundance Channel, the not-for-profit Sundance Institute, Sundance Film Festival and North Fork Preservation Alliance.

Well, he recently twittered, "Anything which helps new and interesting voices in the cultural realm reach more people can only enrich the experience of artists, audiences and communities."

The Left Coast Report wonders if Redford's movie projectors are going to be windbag-powered.

3. MoveOn and Chuck Schumer Go "Star Wars" Wacky

While leftist advocacy group MoveOn posted an ad with a "Star Wars" theme, Dem senators made lame attempts to launch their own "Star Wars"-style digs.

MoveOn PAC recently came out with an ad entitled "Save the Republic." The Web site indicated that "weirdly enough, the plot [of "Revenge of the Sith"] revolves around a scheming senator who, seduced by visions of absolute power, transforms a democratic republic into an empire."

In addition to the ad, MoveOn has been distributing flyers to moviegoers who are waiting in line at multiplexes.

Chuck Schumer apparently wanted to demonstrate that he's hip to George Lucas's flicks, too. The New York senator told the Washington Post that Democrats are the "Jedi knights" in the struggle against the Republicans as they try to stop the use of the so-called nuclear option.

The Left Coast Report asks the same question as Sen. Frist's spokesman: "Would that make Howard Dean Jar Jar Binks?"

Since he spoke at the NAACP's 50th anniversary celebration of the U.S. Supreme Court's Brown v. Board of Education decision in 2004, Bill Cosby's life has taken some strange turns.

The legendary comedian has been deluged with allegations, threats of litigation and general griping about his straight talk ever since.

In a recent interview with NBC's Al Roker, Dyson claimed that Cosby's Fat Albert character proves that the comedian is a hypocrite.

Cosby said that labeling kids as "disadvantaged" or "at risk" is merely a way to excuse kids' failings. "You've got to stay on them, and with them," Cosby instructed.

Hollywood actors can be so jealous.

The Golden State's current esteemed governor, Arnold Schwarzenegger, drives the Hollywood Left nuts. He's been victorious, Republican label and all. And he continues to forge ahead with a resolve that makes Al Franken stammer, Rosie O'Donnell clamor and Barbra Streisand yammer.

While at a recent UC Berkeley graduation event, Beatty sauntered up to the podium. When he opened his mouth, he sounded very much like a guy who was throwing his hat into the ring.

During his speech, Beatty explained that while he "didn't want to" run for governor, he'd "do a hell of a lot better job than he's [Schwarzenegger] done." He added, "I don't think anyone should ever rule public service out. It's a way of saying, ‘Take me out of the mix and don't listen to me any more.'"
