Remember `Mad Max’ and the insane cop he played with Danny “Global Warming Causes Earthquakes” Glover in that movie series (name escapes me)?
Mel wasn’t acting. Hitchens is right: Gibson’s as crazy as an outhouse mouse.
And we can find easier Hollywierdos to defend.
Denzel Washington. Kevin Costner, some others. There are a more than a few normal (see: `conservative’) leading actors, we just don’t hear much from them.
As Hitchen’s writes in `Religion Poisons Everything’ Spinoza, Descarte & others—notably the scientist who ground lenses and was served with a fatwah by his own synagogue—they often signed their works anonymously, under a rose (or sub rosa), and agreed that those who hid well, lived well.
Kick this religious screwball to the curb. His act is getting old.

I don’t think anyone is defending Gibson so much as trying to get the truth. Does he have problems? Yep. And I think what the police conclude will be interesting. He’s a colorful character that picked the wrong arm candy.

Denzel's a conservative? How'd I miss that, and where has he been these days?

(Off thread-topic, I know, but with accusations of racism being lobbed at the Tea Party movement lately, his voice could be utilized as an invaluable antidote in the 2010 campaign. Probably afraid of not getting work but, having already achieved the Oscar career milestone it might be as good a time as any to switch things up and focus his considerable charisma towards politics. Jmho.)
