Rosie O’Pennafonte: Hollywood Morphing Into One Gigantic Idiot

It’s a confession that must be made: I’ll be happy when President Bush’s term is over and there’s a new person for the left to hate.

As a writer and a keen observer of whiffle-brained Tinseltown activists, it’s getting too confusing keeping track of who said what about Bush.

The empty ideals, full wallets and stuffed egos of Hollywood have been out in force in the past few years, but the wheels are really starting to come off, and it’s tough to break your fall while in a straight-jacket.

Rosie O’Donnell, Sean Penn and Harry Belafonte are three of the most vocal of late in facing down a global political problem that, if it isn’t gotten rid of, could mean the end of their way of life, and perhaps even the world as we know it.

The three entertainers — a rugged looking gruff fella, a Calypso singer, and Sean Penn — are putting all their attention and any spare resources not already dedicated to the upkeep of 10,000 square foot estates toward — once and for all — eradicating the world of its most frightening menace.

Kim Jong-Il? Nope.

Mahmoud Ahmadinejad? Nuh-uh.

Al-Qaida? Nah.

No, O’Donnell and Penn are focusing on the real enemy. The man who makes the hands of Hollywood shake in anger to the point where it creates surf-able Doppler waves in their Evian. The man who is single-handedly stripping away all freedoms in this land — except, apparently, the freedom to make lousy movies, annoying television shows, and over-the-top lunacy-laced commentary with zero sense of historical scope. That enemy is, of course, George W. Bush.

Here’s what Sean Penn said at a San Francisco rally a couple of days ago:

“We cower as you point your fingers telling us to support our troops. You and the smarmy pundits in your pocket — those who bathe in the moisture of your soiled and blood-soaked underwear — can take that noise and shove it.”

The drama lessons really paid off, Sean. Or was that Rosie who said that? I think it was Sean.

Penn then went on to say that he supports the troops, just as long as the money that funds their missions instead goes to Africa and the troops are out of business and working at Taco Bell.

Speaking on The View, the program that gives employment to so many mentally challenged people that it probably qualifies for some sort of Federal subsidy, O’Donnell said that she wonders if the British soldiers who were taken into custody by Iran is a fake incident that Bush invented to provoke a war with Iran.

This may very well be another Gulf of Tonkin-type incident, according to Rosie, though it seems that, even though Hollywood thinks Bush is stupid, he’d at least be smart enough to have the fake abductees be American soldiers. Nice try, Rosie — Or was that said by Harry Belafonte? I can’t remember exactly which.

But Bush is not only an evil man who makes Hitler look like Ward Cleaver, he also keeps slaves in his administration.

In a recent British interview (audio here), Belafonte explained why he thinks blacks in the Bush administration are “house slaves” and “powerless,” why he doesn’t believe Bush is the “greatest terrorist in the world” because Belafonte has yet to meet all the terrorists, and why black conservatives are greedy tools of white people who “will sell you out in a minute” and “have no regard for humanity.”

Condi Rice, Colin Powell, along with Clarence Thomas and many others, have only achieved some of the nation’s highest offices and met with the world’s most powerful people. Black conservatives have yet to defiantly break the stereotypical mold like Belafonte did by singin’ and dancin’ for crowds of mostly white people.

Tell it like it is, Harry! Or was it Penn who said that? Or Rosie? Whatever — until Bush is out of office, I’ll just call them Rosie O’Pennefonte.

Gore Wars

The global warming debate has reached such a level that National Review Online has a blog dedicated specifically to it, which is called Planet Gore.

Some people, such as David Roberts blogging at The Huffington Post, takes offense to the detractors and mockers at NRO. Roberts doesn’t like the weight jokes flying around about Gore.

In the meantime, the Detroit News reports that Gore has traded in his Lexus for two hybrid Mercury Mariners. Al’s ass is so big that it needs two cars now? — Oh, sorry David.

Hillarycare II: Sequel To A Flop

Almost immediately after the famed intern-Mountie Dudley Do-Wrong and his uncommon-law wife began to occupy the Oval Office in January of 1993, Hillary Clinton went to work creating what would have been the “Spruce Goose” of federal programs by diving headlong into a blind attempt to establish national health care.

The effort failed miserably in concept, and had it actually been tried, would have had disastrous consequences and cemented Hillary’s place as the Wile E. Coyote of Washington, D.C.

So, as anybody who makes movies will tell you, if it’s a flop the first time, the sequel will be much better.

Hang on to your wallets:

Democratic presidential hopeful Hillary Rodham Clinton vowed Monday to create a universal health care system if elected, saying she “learned a lot” during the failed health care effort of her husband’s presidency.

“We’re going to have universal health care when I’m president — there’s no doubt about that. We’re going to get it done,” the New York senator and front-runner for the 2008 nomination said.

“Learned a lot,” such as that it might be nice to talk to medical professionals when planning it? I doubt it.

If you think it’s bad now, wait ’til Hillary fixes it.

Here’s what happened when a smaller version of Hillarycare was passed in Tennessee over a decade ago:

In 1994, Tennessee passed what was then a very hot New Democrat idea–call it government managed care–a version of the reform the former first lady was also pitching nationwide. TennCare promised the impossible dream of politicians everywhere: Lower health-care costs while covering more of the “uninsured.” They got the impossible, all right. After 10 years of mismanagement and lawsuits, TennCare now eats up one-third of the state’s entire budget and is growing fast. Governor Phil Bredesen, a Democrat, is preparing to pull the plug and return the state to the less lunatic subsidies of Medicaid.

The rest of the story of that medical death-spiral is here.

Liberals like Hillary look at bureaucratic disasters such as Tennessee’s health care cluster-undulation and the only thing wrong with it they can see is that it wasn’t implemented by the properly qualified unqualified personnel.

Hold on to your wallets and stock up on your own Band-Aids, gauze, insulin and other supplies. A trip to your medicine cabinet will be much easier than spending 18 hours in a crowded waiting room to see the 25-year-old intern who’s covering for your doctor, who quit to become a truck driver because there’s more money in it.

I’d suggest medical school for all of us — if for no other reason than to be able to treat our own families after the health care industry goes completely down the drain with Hillary holding the faucet.

Monday's Column: "Bong Hits 4 Jesus" in the Supreme Court

Today’s column at WorldNetDaily is about a court case known as “Bong hits 4 Jesus.”

The ACLU, among others, are backing a guy who was a high school student in 2002 and unfurled the afrementioned banner across the street from the school. It was confiscated by the school’s principal, and, of course, a lawsuit ensued. The case has made it to the U.S. Supreme Court.

I noticed one peculiarity in all of this: The ACLU is fighting for the public school students right to display the word “Jesus” near school property. I wonder if they know what they’re doing.

Read the whole story in “ACLU finally backs Jesus — for a bong hit.”

The Latest PETA Stunt: Jesus the Vegetarian

The People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, famous for their crazed public relations campaigns which are designed, rather brilliantly, to use shock and offense to spread their message without having to shell out much advertising money, is at it again.

This time PETA is out to prove that Jesus fed the masses with loaves, tofu and garden salads. Their latest campaign features a vegetarian Last Supper recreation, starring mannequins in the likeness of Paul McCartney, k.d. lang and others aboard a traveling 1955 Silver Streak Airstream trailer fashioned into a veggie diner. It’s coming to an area near you.

From WorldNetDaily:

The vegetarian “disciples” represented in the “Last Supper” include the famed Louisa May Alcott, Kafka, George Bernard Shaw, Cesar Chavez, Susan B. Anthony, Jesus, Alec Walker, Paul McCartney, k.d. lang, Gandhi, Einstein and Leonardo Da Vinci, officials said.

On the other side of the trailer are graphic images of animal slaughterhouses, and available at the trailer will be screenings of PETA’s movie, “Meet Your Meat,” narrated by Alec Baldwin.

For the record, there is Biblical evidence and many passages describing Jesus and others as eating meat and consuming dairy. There is even more evidence that Alec Baldwin does the same:

Alec Baldwin does his part for PETA by eating all the animals so the rest of us can’t

Close Encounters of the White Flag Kind

The French government has surrendured all the information they have culled on UFO sightings over the years.

France’s space agency (they’d have put a man on the moon by now, but it’s incredibly difficult to get the astronaut union to sign off on allowing a member to go over the 35 hour mandated maximum work-week that the trip would require) has put 100,000 documents online.

Flag Defecation and Other ClAss Acts By "Peace Protesters"

Is it a slip of the tongue when the media reports about “peace protesters”? I mean, it’s often an accurate description, as sometimes they’re anything but peaceful. As a matter of fact, the Bureau of Statistics Pulled Out of Thin Air has claimed that, for the first time in history, your odds of being beaten up by somebody who’s “anti-war” are greater than being pummeled by somebody who’s “pro-war.”

When those who claim to be anti-war are described as “peace protesters,” this is most likely unintended by the mainstream media. I’m sure they mean to write “war protesters,” but I won’t tell them, since, in an increasing number of instances, they got it right the first time.

Speaking of peace protesters, there was a gathering of same very recently in Seattle, Washington in which something happened that I’d never before heard of, though it most assuredly has occurred before (sometimes I consider myself incredibly lucky for having such a limited acquaintanceship).

For years and years there has been a debate in America over whether or not to ban flag burning, but recently I ran across something that hasn’t been covered. Should there be a ban on defecating on the flag?

This is from an editorial in the Portland Tribune:

If the cause of peace is worth supporting — and we believe it is — then peace protesters must demonstrate the values they promote…

…Perhaps the most disturbing scene of the afternoon, however, involved the man who pulled down his pants in front of women and children and defecated on a burning U.S. flag. This disgusting act actually elicited cheers from some members of the crowd, but we hope that the emotion it produces in the community is one of revulsion.

If there was a “sense of revulsion” in the crowd of 15,000, you would think it would have been reported.

It seems that, at the very least, a burning flag that’s spewing who-knows-how-much greenhouse gas into the air coupled with a leftist methane expulsion would have had the global warming paranoids in the crowd up in arms, but that doesn’t seem to be the case either.

Speaking of burning, at that same anti-restroom rally, an American soldier was burned in effigy. I don’t know how much more “support” the troops can handle, at least not without a good dose of Noxema and a couple truckloads of baby wipes.
