Woody Allen echoes other libs -- wants Obama to become a dictator

Anyone remember this gem of a column by the NY Times' Tom Friedman?

There is only one thing worse than one-party autocracy, and that is one-party democracy, which is what we have in America today.

One-party autocracy certainly has its drawbacks. But when it is led by a reasonably enlightened group of people, as China is today, it can also have great advantages. That one party can just impose the politically difficult but critically important policies needed to move a society forward in the 21st century.

Yeah, y'know, never mind the gulags for political prisoners, one-child per family program, massive censorship and routine human rights abuses, etc.!! They can get stuff done!

Now, that savvy political mind Woody Allen offers this brilliant insight:

"It would be good...if (Obama) could be dictator for a few years because he could do a lot of good things quickly. I am pleased with Obama. I think he is brilliant. The Republican Party should get out of his way and stop trying to hurt him."

One can only imagine (gee, I've been saying this a lot of late!) if right-leaning celebs said that George W. Bush should become a dictator for a few years ... and that the Democrats should just "get out of the way" so that Bush could win Iraq and Afghanistan without all the negative "hoopla."

Yeah. Just imagine -- the incredibly swift condemnation by the usual MSM suspects. (They'd be right, of course; it'd be refreshing, however, to see them be just a little even-handed.)
