and a driving commitment to the truth,

to shoot and kill our next nominee.
So there is a certain justice
in speaking tonight about Josh Brolin’s brilliant work in Milk.
Actors have been known to look for roles that
show them as strong and morally tough.
But as Dan White Josh,
you took on the role of somone who acts out of fear and weakness.
Thus, reminding us that we must replace fear
and turn weakness into strength.
Boy, you really nailed it.
I agree with everything that’s been said so far,
Now, let’s talk about taking risks, shall we?

you’ve put youself back
among the boldest and best actors working today.
To be a white actor,
to be a white actor, playing a white Australian actor,
playing a black man,
in black face,
I’ll say it, ‘are you out of your mind?’
I mean… you know,
I can understand getting into your character for the art and character soul,
but that’s enough from taking the parts from the black people, man.

relishing the night wind
and reveling in the chaos he has unleashed on
on the streets of Gotham city.
