Weighty with angst and spectacle, Hollywood luminaries have taken on politics. They sign petitions, make statements and pen missives about America or their vision of it, anyway.

Actor Sean Penn spent $56,000 on an ad in The Washington Post yesterday, warning President Bush against a "preemptive attack on a separate sovereign nation."

These people have been living in their fantasy world for too long. They are having delusions that what they say matters.

>>>"Once again, Barbra Streisand has opened her alligator-sized mouth before her humming-bird brain has a chance to catch up," actor R. Lee Ermy told the Sunday Telegraph. "Ms. Streisand does not speak for me or many other folks in this business."

Now that's a mouthful from the drill sergeant.

The quote of the month, for sure and may be quote of the year!

someone said, "liberals are the self-righteous, led by the self-important, for the benefit of the self-serving"

"In the words of William Shakespeare, beware the leader who bangs the drums of war in order to whip the citizenry into patriotic fervor," she continued. "Patriotism is indeed a double-edged sword. It both emboldens the blood, just as it narrows the mind." The statement was mistakenly gleaned from an Internet parody of famous authors rather than a Shakespearean work. Miss Streisand also called Iraqi leader Saddam Hussein an "Iranian"

LOL!, Streisand has become a pathetic laughingstock - - the perfect "face of the Democrat Party", hahaha!
Crazy as it may sound, I am really starting to wonder if Barbra Streisand is even more stupid than Barbara Boxer.
At least Boxer spells her first name right.

Excellent response to the repulsive Babs from the man who is Gunny Claus to some very happy San Diego Marines. He goes down to MCRD San Diego (aka Hollywood for the Devil Dogs) every year and plays Gunny Hartman for the current Drill Instructors. Semper Fi!

Woody Harrelson took to newspaper pages.
"I'm an American tired of American lies," he wrote in Britain's Guardian newspaper Thursday. Stay out of Iraq, he advised. "This is a racist and imperialist war. The warmongers who stole the White House have hijacked a nation's grief and turned it into a perpetual war on any non-white country they choose to describe as terrorist."

Woody Harrelson? Hahahaha!
Man, this guy must really love his crystal meth. What a maroon, lol.

What these anti american actors are doing is hurting themselves. They seem to forget that conservatives go to movies, buy CDs and videos etc just as much as liberals do. BTW; this Hollywood type attack smacks of some organized movement, not just random soap box ramblings.

I would describe it as "giving comfort to the enemy", especially when they go on foreign soils and proclaim their hatred for the US Government.

I agree with you. Remember how Jane Fonda became the most hated woman in the nation after she did the same in Viet Nam, now these traitors are looked up too for doing to the same thing.

Well, let's see. Could it be that they are following in the footsteps of their leader, "The Bent One", who, many decades past, under the guise of a Rhodes Scholar, went to England's distant shores and used it as his base for anti-American protests, and springing off point for his indoctrination tour by his Socialist Masters?

Quiz question of the day

Which one of the following is most qualified to determine whether or not a war with Iraq is needed?

a. Barbara Streisand - High School Education
b. Sean Penn - High School Education
c. Jessica Lange - College Dropout (U. of Minnesota)
d. Woody Harrelson -B.A., Theater Arts and English, Hanover College
e. George W. Bush - Bachelor's degree from Yale University and a Master of Business Administration from Harvard Business School. Served as an F-102 pilot for the Texas Air National Guard.

(hint: four of the above spend most of their time playing make-believe).

>>They are having delusions that what they say matters.<<

Unfortanately they aren't delusions. These are deemed important people by a a lot, maybe even the majority, of sheeple. I'm nt sure why they get to be considered so "in the know" or important or trustworthy but people listen to them. What they say matters DOES matter because more people are listening to them tehn are listening to us. Although I have absolutely ZERO respect for 99.9999 percent of them I have to admit they are a powerful bunch politically. I don't know why. I wish I did. I know people who couldn't tell you any politicians view on an issue but can tell you what the celebrity flavor of the weeks opinion is.

Maybe we just need to bring back McCarthyism.

Well ... you know what they say ...

Even a fool looks smart if he keeps his mouth shut. When you open it, you remove all doubt.

These types think sucking up to the Islamakazis will keep them safe from attack. They have no idea of the kind of people that they're delaling with.
