Levasseur reportedly updated his Facebook status to say this on Thursday:
"anime is a prime example of why two nukes just wasn't enough...."You can watch a local news video below. The report goes on to state the obvious: the statement "could be deemed as insensitive toward the Japanese heritage." Er, however, it should also be obvious that it's not just the Japanese who watch anime.
Levasseur apologized, stating that the remark was meant to be private. That, of course, makes it all better. Who would want to nuke Kiki (above, from another Miyazaki film, "Kiki's Delivery Service."
Of course, the GOP in NH jumped on it immediately, asking NH's Gov. Lynch to ask his party to stop participating in such "shameful behavior," forgetting of course, Larry Craig, Paul Stanley,
Mark Foley (and those are just some of the ones involved in sex scandals). This Levasseur incident is just foot in mouth disease, not dick in *** disease.
