Today Show's Movie Critic Calls Desert Storm "America's First Oil War"

<p>Even the movie reviews on Today aren't free from liberal bias. During his review of the new movie Jarhead Gene Shalit lapsed into the language of Moveon.org types in his description of the film: </p><blockquote dir="ltr" style="margin-right: 0px;"><p>Gene Shalit: &quot;Good morning and welcome to the Critic's Corner. Jarhead, from the distinguished director Sam Mendes, is an immediate classic. No exploding mines, no flying shrapnel its glory is in its understatement, its frightening quietude. Jarhead, that's slang for a Marine, is set in Desert Storm, <strong>America's first oil war.&quot;</strong></p></blockquote><p>After coming back from a clip of the movie I half-expected to see Shalit holding a &quot;No blood for oil,&quot; protest sign. </p><p><b></b></p><p />
