It appears that Kal Penn had already planned to resign from the White House as another "Harold and Kumar" movie is in the works.

This may have just been additional incentive to leave that 'utopia' called Washington, D.C.

I heard it was Doogie Howser who robbed him. Then he stole Kal’s car and Cal had a crazy adventure trying to get to the White Castle.

Good if he’s unhurt and I wouldn’t wish it on anyone - but maybe he soiled his pants and will start to re-think dogmatic leftism, at least in relation to crime.

No, I don’t think that is the case here. He already had a publicist in Hollywood because he is a professional actor.

He has been in a TV series and several movies, so a publicist is ‘de rigeur’.

So now that this liberal has been mugged, will he become a conservative?

Just a little wealth redistribution, Kal. Your boss would approve.

The thief didn’t rob him. The thief was simply liberating him of the wealth Kal stole from some poor soul. And don’t call this thief a thief. He is actually a Wealth Re-distribution Agent for the Obama administration. He received his training in Zimbabwe before being transferred to the USA to train others in the IRS to do the same.

Democrat gets mugged in DC and it’s big news. Republican gets hospitalized in New Orleans and it’s a non-story for most media.

I don’t think this was a robbery. Kal just had some of his wealth ‘redistributed’.

Darn. I thought the reason he was resigning from the White House is because Dr. House was going to figure a miraculous way to bring him back to life after his "suicide". ;-)

yeah, Kal, let’s just call it a “Millionaire’s Tax”

the implementation of this particular “Millionaire’s Tax” may be a bit rude and idiosyncratic, and the Gubmint doesn’t get to dictate how that money in particular is “re-distributed” but I’m sure it’s gone to someone “less fortunate” than you, Kal, so you have no cause for complaint....

We live in a fallen world, so I expect the unfairness. But I don't see any way that the MSM can delude themselves into viewing themselves as not being hypocrites. So I wonder, why chose to live as a hypocrite? Doesn't that make one feel sleazy? I just can't grasp liberal culture some times is all.

A few days ago, I watched just the last few minutes of the White Castle movie because I was going to see what came on after it.

In just that short time, it was filled with anti White hatred. That movie must have been something else.

Can you imagine the conspiracy firestorm that would have happened if he had been shot and killed right after quitting the obama white house...

Wasn’t there an intern that got rubbed out at a coffee house? AFTER SERVING UNDER CLINTON? And there were suspicions she was going to talk? It seems a lifetime ago...

I think liberals believe that conservatives are evil people. (Conservatives, according to Limbaugh, view liberals as having unworkable or bad ideas.)

When a person sees another as evil, they justify in their minds that the other deserved to be hurt or killed. I’ve noticed that on liberal blogs, too!

Not likely here, tho.

It was? The last few minutes of "Harold and Kumar Go To White Castle" is filled with Harold and Kumar eating White Castle sliders. What's "anti White hatred" about that?

I think you're correct. I post regularly on a "mixed" message board and I am firmly convinced that most liberals are ill equipped to discuss any topic in a rational, logical manner. If you talk about specific legislation that impinges on freedom they go on about Bush...as if that changes the current topic one way or the other.

If you point out how some entitlement program is failing to accomplish what they claim it's supposed to do they call you heartless...and they are then confused when you point out that if their real intention was to help people then it's more heartless to waste money on programs that don't work instead of using the money for programs that do...or even just leaving the money with the person who earned it and allow them to spend it directly.
