Ding, Ding, Ding! Round one! The roar of the crowd, the smell of the freshly sharpened number two pencils, the hum of the voting machines; that’s right friends, it’s election time. George W. Bush has served his sentence, and a series of new guys (and gals…or gal) are all lining up for a shot to take over the oval. Everyone has their opinion about who might be the best person for the job, and that of course includes our famous brothers and sisters.
This weekend, Sean Penn released an official statement giving his full support to Dennis Kucinich, saying, “He has been the dominant voice of integrity on issues of trade, labor, education, environment, health, civil liberties, and the one endlessly determined voice of peace.” Penn, never particularly shy to share his political ideas, continued on to speak fondly of Kucinich for his “moral courage”, and devotion to the constitution.
Penn also shared his thoughts about Hillary Clinton, “Don’t underestimate the damage her poisonous ambition can do to this country. We can’t wait for the benefit of hindsight to service the benefit of Mrs. Clinton’s career. ”
Wowsers! And it’s only December kids! Buy your tickets now for another 11 months of celebrities putting on those partisan boxing gloves all in the name of peace. Amen.
