SEAN PENN: BUSH CAUSED ‘ENORMOUS DAMAGE TO MANKIND,’ MAY BRING FASCISM TO U.S.” (Cached Copy Here.)

I have been, up to now, always eager to dismiss Sean Penn’s socio-political moments because I think he has immense acting talent. But, there’s a limit to my eagerness this morning, mostly because what I think Sean Penn and other actors and entertainers like him are are those who make a great living off reacting and working with their emotional sense about and of other people. But they stop there, are limited by the very gifts that have made them keen. Not all of them, but most. In Sean Penn’s case, he skewers that which he should not, and there it goes again: that’s the source of his fascinating ability on screen. But it makes his impromptu renditions just all that more difficult to take seriously.

And here is where my fascination — perhaps naivete — ends.

Why is he on CNN talking politics and why should we listen to him?
here is why:

he is a high school drop out

he smokes

he takes drugs

he has a drinking problem

he has a criminal record

he has been accused of abusing at least one of wives/girl friend

he is a dwarf

next to bill mahar he is a genius.
