    Conservatives rally behind Ricky Gervais | Reuters

    LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) - British comedian Ricky Gervais is the new darling of political conservatives thanks to the fusillade of insults he directed at the aghast celebrities attending the weekend's Golden Globe Awards.

    Delighted at the sight of Gervais belittling Hollywood elitists who they maintain do likewise to them regularly, the right-wing blogosphere lit up with positive reviews, even while more traditional media was critical of Sunday's telecast.

    I didn't watch either and though I can't tell you who or what movie won for anything, I have seen some of the "jokes" online at You Tube and various sites around the web. The only thing I learned is that I will not be watching again next year and that "hollywoodites" are very (very) thin skinned. (very very... like Obama thin skinned) So, yeah, it's nice to see them get sucker punched for a change.

    I can't speak for conservatives but I think most people like it when someone speaks truth to power and does it with a smile to boot.

    I'm not a conservative and I think he was great, this year and last (watched the clips on youtube). Dude just stood up on stage and made fun of all these celebrities to their faces. Twice! :lol:
