Sean Penn is an Idiot

Check out this letter that Sean Penn wrote to Trey Parker and Matt Stone of South Park fame. His lack of command of the English language is especially amusing.

To Trey Parker and Matt Stone,

I remember a cordial hello when you guys were beginning to be famous guys around Hollywood at some party. I remember several times getting a few giggles out of your humor. I remember not being bothered as you traded on my name among others to appear witty, above it all, and likeable to your crowd. I never mind being of service, in satire and silliness.

I do mind when anybody who doesn't have a child, doesn't have a child at war, or isn't or won't be in harm's way themselves, is encouraging that there's "no shame in not voting" "if you don't know what you're talking about" (Mr. Stone) without mentioning the shame of not knowing what your talking about, and encouraging people to know. You guys are talented young guys but alas, primarily young guys. It's all well to joke about me or whomever you choose. Not so well, to encourage irresponsibility that will ultimately lead to the disembowelment, mutilation, exploitation, and death of innocent people throughout the world. The vote matters to them. No one's ignorance, indcluding a couple of hip cross-dressers, is an excuse.

All best, and a sincere fuck you,

Sean Penn

ABC Memo Proves Bias

From Drudge:

Halperin Memo Dated Friday October 8, 2004

It goes without saying that the stakes are getting very high for the country and the campaigns - and our responsibilities become quite grave

I do not want to set off (sp?) and endless colloquy that none of us have time for today - nor do I want to stifle one. Please respond if you feel you can advance the discussion.

The New York Times (Nagourney/Stevenson) and Howard Fineman on the web both make the same point today: the current Bush attacks on Kerry involve distortions and taking things out of context in a way that goes beyond what Kerry has done.

Kerry distorts, takes out of context, and mistakes all the time, but these are not central to his efforts to win.

We have a responsibility to hold both sides accountable to the public interest, but that doesn't mean we reflexively and artificially hold both sides "equally" accountable when the facts don't warrant that.

I'm sure many of you have this week felt the stepped up Bush efforts to complain about our coverage. This is all part of their efforts to get away with as much as possible with the stepped up, renewed efforts to win the election by destroying Senator Kerry at least partly through distortions.

It's up to Kerry to defend himself, of course. But as one of the few news organizations with the skill and strength to help voters evaluate what the candidates are saying to serve the public interest. Now is the time for all of us to step up and do that right.

Are the Braves Chokers?

Here is a good article from ESPN that analyzes the Braves' over the last 13 years. Before you hate on us for losing in the playoffs again this year, consider what the experts have to say. And by the way, the Astros will beat us in 3 games.

France On the Take

Read this. It clearly spells out the fact that Saddam was paying off high level French officials to oppose US policies...and Kerry wants us to work with these people.

Inside the Mind of Saddam

Read this and tell me we're not better with this guy behind bars.

Fact Checking the VP Debate

Here's a great link that shoots down many of the arguments both VP candidates made in last night's debate. A lot of what both of them said was completely or partially false. Good debate, though.

More Idiocy From Government Schools

A teacher was forced by parents and school administrators to take down a photograph of President Bush from a photo montage of US Presdients. Ridiculous! Read more here.
