Angelina Jolie Tells Starstruck Economic Summit in Davos, Switzerland to Stay Focused
Reuters & Yahoo ^ | 1/27/06

Posted on 01/28/2006 4:26:02 AM PST by Dr. Scarpetta

Angelina Jolie told a summit of business leaders and politicians, many driven to distraction by the Hollywood siren, to concentrate on the real issues.

"I just think if I can ask anything it's for everybody in this room, including myself, to stay focused on the issues," Jolie, a goodwill ambassador for the U.N. refugee agency, told an audience at the World Economic Forum on Friday.

"To follow up on Darfur, to watch what is happening in the courts, to follow up on Nepal ... on Afghanistan," she said.

Jolie uses her celebrity pulling power to draw attention to humanitarian crises in places such as Darfur, Chad and Pakistan.

The Oscar-winner and her beau Brad Pitt, whose child she is carrying, have reduced the global elite at Davos to star-struck autograph hunters, scrambling over each other to get a glimpse of the actress and her man.

I wonder if Angelie Jolie got a chance to advise John F. Kerry in Davos, Switzerland on the "real issues."

Angelie and John F. pulled all their brainpower together and came up with the idea of filibustering Alito knowing it had no chance of success. Well maybe Kerry didn't know that since he was at a Swiss ski resort instead of on the Senate floor expressing his concerns.

What I wonder is who paid for skerry boondoggle to Davos, Switzerland?

Some enterprising lobbyist, perhaps?

Focus! Focus! Focus! Doesn't she remember that's what knocked her up in the first place?

If you want them to focus on the issues sweetheart, you should keep your butt out of there!

That must be the Pitt's!


You would think she would let someone else carry the kid, whilst she was doing the work of the anointed.

From the picture of Kerry yesterday it is obvious this conference (the millionth of its kind--the usual pious liberal pontificating) is boring boring boring.

The "focus" of the conference (for the male attendees) is probably scheming on how to get into the pants of the Hollywood sluts in attendance.

No No NO there will be no "pants" to get into - it is panties and as we all have been taught by Sharon Stoned you can send a clearer message by not wearing panties.

So given the history of communication, staying focused should not be a problem.

I wonder if they have a score card for "beaver shots" included in the registration packet? I mean one has to prove one was focused right? Or after a while they could all look like sisters and then we would need a program to tell them apart - that could become a problem and there goes the focus down the old beaver hole.

She sure has large lips, I wonder what they cost her?

Another thing I wonder about is how often they audit the UN refugee agency. I bet they suck almost as much money out of that as the oil for food money.

How about focusing on the cause and maybe THEN you'll be able to start solving the problem

Throwing more money won't solve the problem ... because there is to much corruption that the money is not getting to the people who really need it

Well, I suppose Angelie Jolie's films have outsold Hayek's "The Road to Serfdom". Perhaps that makes her more qualified to speak at a world economic summit. /sarc

Jolie had it a bit easier than that. She's Jon Voight's daughter. "Hollywood royalty" as they say. Of course she doesn't speak to her father, who from everything I know and see, is a lovely man.

Why doesn't she use her money? Oh, that's right, it's better if mechanics, Walmart associates and small business owners send their taxes to Washington, where lots of it is spent on bureaucracy and then some is left for "programs" that supposedly help people.

In the CEO of the Sofa, P.J. O'Rourke informed us that she used to wear a vial of Billy Bob Thorton's blood around her neck. Also, apparently she was caught "making out" with her own brother.

I believe that tells us all we need to know.
