Patrick Swayze: Middle East Scholar

Patrick Swayze: Middle East Scholar October 26, 2004 By Debbie Schlussel

Does consuming wontons at a Chinese restaurant make you an expert on Sino-American relations?

Patrick Swayze thinks so.

Just a week before the election, that’s the logic Swayze—the has-been “Dirty Dancing” actor—used in an absurd interview he gave to generate press for his wife’s latest failed film, “One Last Dance.”

Speaking with Agence France Presse (it figures he’d pick the French) while in Warsaw, Swayze criticized the United States for being “insensitive” and “disrespectful” in Iraq.

“I know a great deal about the Middle East because I’ve been raising Arabian horses,” he said.

I eat Italian ices, but, unlike Mr. Dirty Dancing, I’m not about to lecture Prime Minister Berlusconi about the economic situation in Florence.

Actually, he should hang around with some actors, then he might learn something about ACTING.

Hahahahahahaha, that is so funny " I know a great deal about the middle east because I raise Arabian Horses". I guess that qualifies me as an expert too because I have two persian cats.

That could turn out badly. I speak as an expert, having watched The Godfather.

Every actor/ actress who has worked with this guy hated his guts. He is a narcissist and I've heard he's not the sharpest toool in the shed. Let's follow whatever he says. Not!

Indeed. There was a typo above, when they referred to his wife. It should be "wife".

Let the experts gather. "In my youth, I smoked some imported Afghani hashish..." Of course, I didn't inhale.

Patrick Swayze lost his Hollywood career because he looked like he got hit with a 'dumb stick' before every scene he shot.

Later, 'Roadhouse' finished him off properly.

I have to confess: I am not a fan of Debbie Schlussel.

I heard her bragging in a radio interview about being a size 2.

I also read her abominable column in which she crapped on women basketball players because they are SOOOOO TALL... gee, if a woman is TALL, she must not be "feminine" or even a "real woman," right?

As a strapping Amazon woman myself, I admittedly react badly to such crap; it sounds amazingly just like all the stupid things people say in grammar and junior high school, if you ask me.

So, while she may be right on Patrick Swayze, I'll take it with about a pound of salt coming from the likes of her.

BTW, someone on the net characterized her as looking like a "biker bitch" because of the tacky shirt, makeup, and bleached hair.

He shoulda' stayed at a Holiday Inn Express and maybe he'd have more than 1/2 a clue.

Does that mean folks with Romanian AK's know a lot about Russia AND the middle east?
