Straw Man?

National Review's Victor Davis Hanson asks

Why the liberal furor over 300?

Has their really been any kind of "furor" over the movie? I haven't heard anything. I saw it, it was entertaining for what it is - people kicking ass and having their asses kicked - though it was pretty thin compared to Sin City. But is there any kind of "furor" over it besides conservatives looking silly using it as some kind of allegory to the war in Iraq?

I think Hanson's just making stuff up or making hay out of mostly nothing.

I will say, however, more Lena Headey.
