Polone: Waffles, yes. Waffling? Never…

Gavin Polone recently talked about the strike with Fox Business. We printed his comments here. Reaction around the blogosphere was, predictably, heated.

Earlier today, the man behind “Curb Your Enthusiasm” and “Gilmore Girls” emailed us a more detailed explanation of his remarks. It’s an explanation… but he’s not backing away from his basic thesis that the writers have more to lose in the short-term than the studios.  “The end result will be that they will go back, on bended knee, and negotiate the deal that they probably could have made initially, had they not gone out on strike and just kept negotiating,” he writes.

We’ve put post of Polone’s explanation (originally posted on another blog) after the jump.

Meanwhile, Scribe Vibe can report exclusively that Polone’s long-in-the-works Hollywood eatery The Waffle is getting much closer to opening– “probably in a month or two,” he writes.

We didn’t ask whether he’s planning to offer a discount to WGA members.
