Sacramento's "Out of Iraq" forum: Bush to blame for the fact that Penn remains a butt-head

Not only are the Iraq war, hurricane Katrina, the West Virginia mine explosion, and global warming the fault of President Bush, but so is the fact that Sean Penn smokes.

This bit of information came from the celluloid-brained actor while attending an “Out of Iraq forum” in Sacramento, California. Of course, Cindy Sheehan was also there.

Cindy Sheehan’s become a white Jesse Jackson, albeit a little more masculine looking and minus the penchant for entertaining rhyme, and was once again using her hero son’s casket as a soapbox.

The self-described “Peace Mom” showed up at the “Out of Iraq” forum, where 200 attendees (generous police estimate– three cops had to use almost all their fingers in order to count the crowd) listened to some leftists blubber something about stuff they’re angry about.

One of the dumbest comments? Actor Sean “Duh” Penn said that President Bush was making it tough to quit smoking, and filled the room with dangerous second-hand idiocy:

Actor Sean Penn added to the enthusiasm of the day by stressing that all of the nation’s anti-war activism was taking hold and was starting to work—while admitting that the stress of living under the current administration was making it tough for him to quit smoking. Stating that he “was not a pacifist on the inside”, he was moved to be one on the outside for the sake of his children and grandchildren’s future. He said we have to fight for everything we have.

Good idea, Sean. Make sure the kids and grandkids are alive, Wheezy, because they’ll be the ones tending to your oxygen hose– perhaps “accidentally” putting a kink in it after they get a peek at your bank account balance and a quick glance to make sure they’re still in the will.

So, the fact some Tinseltown weiner can’t quit smoking is now Bush’s fault too? Yawn. Throw it on the pile with the others, Spicoli.
