Sean Penn goes down on hurricane victims, Pierce Brosnan doesn’t Bond with Bush, and Celine Dion is… well, stupid

Hurricane Hollywood is whirling at full force now, with much of the entertainment industry looking for additional Bush-bashing limelight, and seeking to be the “I” of the storm.

Another actor has come out and questioned the Bush administration. Yawn. This time, it’s Pierce Brosnan, who said, “This man called President Bush has a lot to answer for.” Well doi! All presidents have a lot to answer for. Now if we could only get actors to answer for some of their horrid movies, we’d really be getting somewhere.

Brosnan, a dweller of England, should take note that it’s been confirmed that Al-Qaeda was behind the July 7th subway (“tubes” for those of you on the other side of the pond) bombings. Not only is Bush, not to mention Tony Blair, “answering” for things, but he’s also answering for Pierce Brosnan– no thanks to Brosnan and his vacuous collegues in the entertainment industry.

I’m assuming that Brosnan is referring, this time, to the government response to hurricane Katrina. The left has a simple rule when assigning blame– 1) find the Republican in the chain of command (even if there’s only one), and, 2) bash away like they’re a pinata on Cinco de Mayo.

Then there’s Sean Penn. Hey, say what you want about Sean, but at least he actually went to New Orleans, not to mention Iran and Iraq, complete with personal photographer to record his feats of humanitarianism. Sure, his boat sunk as soon as it was launched, but he tried. The boat, in an attempt to match the logic in Penn’s political arguments, quickly sprung a leak.

Sean added his own personal Poseidon Adventure in New Orleans to his long list of social projects, including reporting for the San Francisco Chronicle from Iran, and earlier, from Iraq. Thanks to those visits to the middle east, the word “Penn” is now an Arabic term meaning “the dumbest guy in the middle east.”

At what point did Sean Penn turn into Jack Kerouac with a lobotomy scar?

Probably the biggest moron in the fast few weeks has to be Celine Dion. Dion proved on the Larry King show that, though her heart will go on, her brain won’t. Concerning looters, Dion said:

“Oh, they’re stealing 20 pair of jeans or they’re stealing television sets. Who cares? They’re not going to go too far with it. Maybe those people are so poor, some of the people who do that they’re so poor they’ve never touched anything in their lives. Let them touch those things for once.”

I pray to the Gods of idiocy that looters are someday in Dion’s mansion so we can say the same thing to her… we’ll see how understanding she is then. I’m sure she’d point that out after the cops left and the charges were filed.

Celine Dion answers Larry King’s first question: “What’s your I.Q.?”
