Day 243 - Senator McCarthy

Day 243.

You wouldn't usually think of Julie & Julia as a prototypical political drama, and I'm here to tell you that you would be absolutely correct in thinking that. However, there is a surprising amount of political discussion between Paul and Julia's parents at Dorothy's wedding reception.


Julia's Mom: How are things at the embassy, Paul?
Paul Child: Fine. Thank you, Phila. Thank you. Well, not fine, really, because
they've cut our library allowance by 90ยบ%. It seems that Senator McCarthy has very long arms.

A normal person wouldn't think twice about this bit of dialogue. After all, the expression "has very long arms" most obvious refers to the fact that those who are in power can always catch and punish people who have opposed them, no matter how far away those opponents may go.

But to no one's surprise. I am not a normal person. Every time I hear Stanley Tucci say this line, I think of... well... this...


Imagine how many midgets he could tickle with those things!
