At the end of a discussion of Haiti on HBO’s Real Time with Bill Maher, actor Sean Penn went on a rant in defense of Venezuelan strongman Hugo Chavez, suggesting prison time for American journalists: "every day, this elected leader is called a dictator here, and we just accept it! And accept it. And this is mainstream media, who should – truly, there should be a bar by which one goes to prison for these kinds of lies."

He must have caught something from Madonna during their marriage that’s now destroying his brain (assuming even he has a brain)!

Chavez is a tyrant and a thug who happens to wear his mother’s underwear and has sex with goats.

Sean Penn sounds like all those supporters of Free Trade with Communist China.....Penn’s “Chavex is not a dictator” sounds like “China is not communist” from all the Free Traders.

Penn just another Nutty Liberal Globalist

I suggest prison time for anyone who suggests Sean Penn is relevant and can act. Certainly such a suggestion would be grounds for incarceration. (Tar and feathering comes to mind!)

BTW, have you ever thought that, broken down to its essential components, "psychotherapist" is "psycho the rapist"?
