Hillary "Ebert" (the Chubby One) and Barack "Siskel" (the Slim One) Give the "Offensive" Mo Trailer Two Thumbs Down

Mark Steyn comments on Obama's outreach ads on Pakistan TV:
The more that U.S. government officials talk about the so-called film "Innocence Of Muslims" (which is actually merely a YouTube trailer) the more they confirm the mob's belief that works of "art" are the proper responsibility of government. Obama and Clinton are currently starring as the Siskel & Ebert of Pakistani TV, giving two thumbs-down to "Innocence Of Muslims" in hopes that it will dissuade local movie-goers from giving two heads-off to consular officials. "The United States government had absolutely nothing to do with this video," says Hillary Clinton. "We absolutely reject its content, and message." "We reject the efforts to denigrate the religious beliefs of others," adds Barack Obama. There follows the official State Department seal of the U.S. Embassy in Islamabad.
My objection to the trailer incorporates a far earlier pop culture reference: To wit: I give it a zero. It has no beat (unless you count the wife beating), and you can't dance to it.
