Clooney film faces censorship (But You Know The New York Slimes...)

by Julia Wheeler

The film which won George Clooney an Oscar may be banned in one of the countries where it was shot because of political sensitivities. Syriana was partly filmed in the United Arab Emirates. The authorities there are still deciding whether the film, which is a political thriller, will be shown.

For the cocktail Happy Hour I also dug up tomorrow's copy of that British rag the Daily Star and their story on old Lonesome George...

I wish I could suffer like that!

Me, too! I can provide Georgie some health care...

My bippy lost out again!

Clooney and his far-leftist Hollywood mob are in love with their anti-Americanism.

Ya know, I think old George would be a blast to go drinking and chasing broads with... Like the old Rat Pack! But as for his politics, as Sinatra would say, "The jerk leaves me cold."

Clooneys ego should be banned. It`s one thing to still not be married or have a steady relationship at 45 because you are gay or screwed up some other way, but it`s quite another when it`s because you are too in love with yourself. Clooney should take lessons from Tom Selleck.. being good looking doesn`t mean you can`t grow up and be a man for once. Curious how Tom Cruise gets all the gay rumors but Clooney seems untouchable.

Eh... Milhous... Let me ask you... So that I can be perfectly clear... Does that "R... O... T... F... L... M... A... O..." mean 'Rolling On The Floor Laughing My (Expletive Deleted) Off?'... Or does it mean...

Give it a rest you... You full bodied Dick! You'll find out in a few years when they dig you up and cut your head off and stick it in a jar of white wine!

Read IMDB...This one guy on there insists he is gay or at least bi. If you aren`t signed up for IMDB it, let me post what he wrote here.....

Ted Cassablanca says George is gay...

Well, just read Ted Cassablanca's column on Eonline...and he seems to be saying that not only is Jake Gyllenhaal gay as (Toothy Tile). He now says there is a new gay in town called "Crisp Lisp" and he seems to be implying that George Clooney is gay or bisexual. Truth be told..Ted has been right about a lot of things..he was right that Lance Armstrong and Sheryl Crow would break up...he was right about Brad and Jen splitting up long before other tabloid media got that section of the story...He's been right about a lot of things...But i would be shocked if George was gay.....

When you think about George Clooney could be at least bisexual or gay...he's always saying he does not want to have a relationship with a woman. He always talks about homosocial relationships about the importance of connecting, bonding, and working with other men. He's 44 years old..single..yet rich and good looking. I am not saying he should be married..but he seems to make a big deal about being a bachelor. and how he can really live without a woman.
Its this part of Clooney's persona I find interesting. It also seems like he wouldn't even want a long term companion or something....He is the one that brought press to himself about wanting to be a long life bachelor...So he shouldn't be surprised when the press start to dig up the dirt or start snooping around...He brought it on to himself...

..I also heard a rumour he brought his gay lover to the Oscars..and his lover was on the red carpet with him... Ted Cassablanca usually is right...he may be on to something about Crisp Lisp. According to Ted..Crisp Lisp..brought his gay lover to a big Hollywood Oscar post party..and although they weren't kissing they made clear they were a homosexual couple...Ted is on to something here...

Ahhh! Peacebaby, leave it to you to hit the nail right solid dead perfect on the head!

I tried that... And all I did was smash my thumb...

As I recall, you have smashed other appendages, too!

Whoa! Don't bring that up again!

She wasn't so tuff! Was she?

And I was going to invite you for lunch and a sail, Millee... No, Abdulla, you were invited as lunch.

And Bill was going to play a ditty for us...

I wouldn't eat those two even if they came stuffed with favar beans and a five hundred gallon barrel of chianti...

Gad! Tony! That would gag... ...ME!

And I'll eat just about anything that is squishy and has a nice decaying odor...

Once you go duck... You never go back!

Did dat just go over me head?

No, it made perfect sense...

Well, it did leave me a little in the dark...

Okay... Okay! I did a rabbit once. Heavens! It was for a part in a film!

Well... I'd never do that for a film part... I have my honor and good taste to consider!

That's it! No soup for anyone!

Yeah Bender... But she's so cute in the morning!

Not us, #2... We have places to go and things to do...
