Deep Throat: You let Haldeman slip away.Woodward: Yes.Deep Throat: You've done worse than let Haldeman slip away: you've got people feeling sorry for him. I didn't think that was possible.

This is what I thought of when I heard about Pie Guy, the idiot who has now plead guilty to hitting Rupert Murdoch with shaving cream, thus paving the way for his wife's beat-down of the pie-thrower, and dozens of idiotic blog posts about "Tiger Mothers". Before Pie Guy let his missile fly, Murdoch was Lionel Barrymore in "It's A Wonderful Life", i.e., The Meanest Man in Town. After The Great Pie Incident, Rupert sat there all hunched over in his shirtsleeves looking like somebody's addled grandpa at Thanksgiving dinner.
Next time, save your pies for Ann Coulter.
