snipshot_94vkdau365w.jpgIn what’s likely to draw even more ire from conservatives towards ‘Liberal Hollywood’, Sean Penn, after receiving the Christopher Reeve First Amendment Award (huh?), called on the President and Vice President to be held accountable for their actions in Iraq. The actor was presented the award (the first recipient ever) from the Creative Coalition, a ‘nonprofit, nonpartisan, politically-active group formed of members of the American film entertainment industry more than a decade ago.’

From the article,

“Aggravated by the Bush administrations handling of the Iraq war, the actor delivered his speech in measured tones but allowed the rage within to spill. His raised a clarion call that was strident. “Let’s put his administration under oath,” he said. “And then if the crimes of treason, bribery or other high crimes and misdemeanors are proven, do as Article 2, Section 4 of the United States constitution provides, and remove the president, vice president, and … civil officers of the United States from office.”

He added: “If the Justice Department then sees fit to bunk them up with Jeff Skilling, so be it.”

Penn concluded with a statement representative of the times we live in: “So look, if we attempt to impeach for lying about a [oral sex act], yet accept these almost certain abuses without challenge, we become a [human] stain on the flag we wave.” Could anyone else have summed it up any more succinctly?
