Evans: Let The Kid Stay in The Picture

evans.jpgDrudge has posted a rambling screed from Robert Evans defending his chum Michael Eisner from the overthrow attempt orchestrated by Roy Disney. He calls Eisner “the single most competitive, cunning, cantankerous, calculating, creative visionary that this hybrid industry/art form has possibly ever dealt with.” He also, wait for it, compares Roy Disney to Adolf Hitler:

Allowing the exploitive PR industry to bend our thinking in praise of a witless Roy Disney as a replacement to the brilliance of a Michael Eisner is somewhat reminiscent of Goebels[sic] propagating the heroics of Adolf Hitler.

So, in Evans’s view, Disney=Hitler. The PR industry=Goebbels. Eisner=uh, Field-Marshal von Hindenburg? Bad analogy, Robert. Bad, bad analogy. (Full disclosure: I believe I own two shares of Disney stock, a Bar Mitzvah gift from my Uncle Irving.)
