    <p>Famous liberal Woody Harrelson says he was surprised to find that he liked Republican strategist Steve Schmidt, who he plays in the HBO movie "Game Change," opposite Julianne Moore as Sarah Palin.</p> <p>"I wouldn’t imagine myself wanting to have anything to do with [Schmidt], but I really found myself liking him," Harrelson tells the April issue of Men's Journal. "He’s a political animal, but I feel like he’s an idealist and not bogged down in all the bullshit. Let’s face it. Obama was a phenomenon. They knew they were going to get beat, so choosing Palin was just a Hail Mary pass. It was just a wild idea."</p>

    In an interview published November 11 at Salon.com, titled, "Woody Harrelson on war, death, LBJ and Obama," by Andrew O'Hehir, actor Woody Harrelson, who stars in the soon-to-be-released film, The Messenger, recounts his conspiracy theory that America invaded Afghanistan not because of the 9/11 attacks, but because Chevron wanted to overthrow the Taliban and build an oil pipeline. Harrelson: The guys from Chevron went in and met with the Taliban and realized those guys just weren't in control enough. That's why they wanted to oust them. Otherwise it's an absurd concept: You're going to war because a guy from some...

    Personally, I am thankful to providence for bestowing Woody Harrelson, zombie fighter, unto this earth to defend us all from those wayward and dangerous zombie paparazzi. Why, we'd be overrun with the shuffling menaces were it not for the brave and selfless actions of Woody Harrelson, zombie fighter! It is my pleasure to recount Captain Zombie Killer's latest epic struggle with the flesh eating, undead from last week. It seems that a zombie paparazzi was about to attack an entire airport full of innocent folks until Captain Zombie Killer stepped in to save us yet again. Of course, there was...

    Shocking case ends in stealthMan linked to judge's death leaves prison, disappears09:43 PM CST on Saturday, January 10, 2004By DAVID McLEMORE / The Dallas Morning News SAN ANTONIO – The closing note on the "crime of the century" played out with little fanfare. Jamiel "Jimmy" Chagra – gambler, convicted drug kingpin and the man federal authorities called the paymaster for the murder of a federal judge – got out of prison before Christmas. Mr. Chagra vanished into an undisclosed location, apparently as part of the federal witness-protection program. Once the subject of screaming headlines across the nation, he slipped into...

RE: Operation Iraqi Freedom Dear Celebrity Anti-War Activist: Over the last several weeks and months, you have used your status as a person of fame to tell the world you're against the war with Iraq, which you believe to be unwarranted, unethical, unconstitutional and un-American.

    Acting Patriotic We often hear from the "anti-war" crowd that "dissent is what America is all about." That by protesting against the war, they are not "unpatriotic," rather, they are the "true patriots." Not to mention the pat on the back they give to themselves because of their "bravery." Bravery has many definitions, "The bravest are surely those who have the clearest vision of what is before them, glory and danger alike, and yet notwithstanding go out to meet it." – Thucydides. More to the point, "Courage is doing what you're afraid to do. There can be no courage unless...

    More and more celebrities using fame to back causes 12/26/2002 Associated Press NEW YORK - From the moment Sean Penn arrived in Baghdad, eager to advance the cause of peace, he was doomed - a dead man talking. He was a celebrity, like so many other celebrities who have waded into the treacherous waters of politics or international relations. So he walked gingerly - he was there, he said, "to learn and not to teach." He avoided reporters. And he was careful not to say or do anything that would cause a meltdown at home. So the Iraqis did...

    Barbra Streisand, she of the Shakespeare mis-quote, the fellow democrat mis-spelling, and the now corrected mis-identification of the "Iranian dictator, Saddam Hussein" has a fellow icon of inaccuracy to keep her company. Woody Harrelson, in a new op-ed in the Guardian UK entitled I'm an American Tired of American Lies, disparages George Bush Sr. and Dubya, Margaret Thatcher, Tony Blair, all politicians, capitalism ... wow, did he leave anything out? He falls for the Bath party line that "We've killed a million Iraqis since the start of the Gulf war - mostly by blocking humanitarian aid." Sorry, Woody, we are...

    <p>WASHINGTON (AP) — The Supreme Court dealt losses Monday to convicted Oklahoma City bombing conspirator Terry Nichols, imprisoned Dr. Jack Kevorkian, former Olympic security guard Richard Jewell, and Frank Sinatra Jr.</p> <p>Their cases were among more than a thousand that justices refused to consider as they returned to work after a three-month break. The court only hears arguments in 80 or so cases each year — about 1% of the cases that make it to the high court.</p>

Here’s a selection of some of those comments.A Singer Speaks Up Country rock singer Steve Earle sang his new song about John Walker Lindh for the Today show. One line described the U.S. as the...
