The Bush Administration Makes Me Smoke

Apparently actor Sean Penn started smoking again. I really don't care about that part. What I do find interesting, more humorous than anything is who he blames, Bush. I guess the stress of the Bush administration was enough to drive him to smoke even though he quit in 2000 following his father's death due to lung cancer.

I would just like to take this opportunity to point out a couple of things:

1. Actors (and actresses too, were not sexist here) like Sean Penn are great for proving one thing, the stupidity of comments they make when they are "off camera." This one doesn't top my favorite which is a tie between Kanye West and Cameron Diaz.

2. I thought people smoked because of the luring advertisements of tobacco companies and because cool little pre-pubescent Johnny does it, not because of the Bush Administration. I guess I was wrong again.

3. I just quit smoking. I guess I am the odd man out and will continue to be unpopular whilst going against the mainstream grain of the Hollywood elitist types. Oh well, big surprise.

Sean Penn is a BOOB! I think I'm going to start a running boob list on my blog and see how many I can get. Perhaps add a link to a website with their biggest boob comments.

You will be busy for a while...

yeah, that comment sounded pretty dumb. Kind of like when Bush said

"Our enemies are innovative and resourceful, and so are we. They never stop thinking about new ways to harm our country and our people, and neither do we."

Or when he said

"Border relations between Canada and Mexico have never been better"


"We're making the right decisions to bring the solution to an end. "

Or my favorite

"There's an old saying in Tennessee -- I know it's in Texas, probably in Tennessee -- that says, fool me once... shame on... shame on you. Fool me... can't get fooled again."

What a BOOB!

I guess it would be pretty stressful to listen to this moron if you expect the leader of the free world to be able to put together a coherent sentence on a regular basis.

p.s. Please check out my response to your diatribe on the abortion thread at "Right off the shore".

I know the president has uttered some pretty inane statements over the last 6 years. And it's too bad that instead of supporting YOUR leader (even though you didn't vote for him), you cut him down and undermine him in a time of great need in this country. I am not saying patriotism is a requirement, but we are in a war against terrorists, insurgents, and menaces. Have some tact.

Moving along. Penn's inane statement BLAMES the Bush administration for a bad habit that no one but himself started. Bush's inane statements are just that, inane. Not outrageous accusations.

I'd love to see Realism's college record. I'm sure it's far superior than W's Yale tenure. Out of the 1000 of speeches, addresses, radio announcements, public forums, etc, Realism found a whole 4 errors.

W shows that he is human, at least he stands by his words and doesn't flip-flop.

My favorite Clinton quote is "Well that would depend on what your definition of is is."


Yeah, X42, once the leader of the free world cannot define the word "is."

At 2:48 PM, Blogger Realism said...

Oh yeah,

1. If he's MY leader, why does he always have people like me thrown out of his cozy little "town hall" meetings? Why doesn't he listen to the opinions of other people that, although they disagree with him, may have more expertise (i.e. people who said that we wouldn't be greeted as liberators in Iraq or people that said that there were no significant WMD's in Iraq). By the way, and I can't stress this enough, TIMES OF WAR ARE THE MOST IMPORTANT TIMES TO HAVE THE FREEDOM TO DISSENT FROM GOVERNMENT. IF I DON'T HAVE THE FREEDOM TO EXPRESS MY VIEWS WHEN THE LIVES OF OUR SOLDIERS ARE AT STAKE, WHAT GOOD IS THE FREEDOM WE ARE SUPPOSED TO BE FIGHTING FOR. THIS IS THE DEFINITION OF PATRIOTISM, NOT FOLLOWING ALONG BLINDLY WHEN YOU HONESTLY BELIEVE THAT YOUR "LEADER" IS WRONG.

2. I agree that Penn was being inane and flippant when he blamed his smoking on Bush. I think its possible that he may have been joking or being facetious.

3. For your information, although I didn't have the family (a.k.a. affirmative action) connections to get into Yale, I did graduate U of Michigan with a 3.625 average, much better than "c+ augustus" as we Dems like to call him.

4. I could find WAY more than 4 examples of Bush's lack of oratorical ability. In fact, numerous books have been written filled with his nonsensical ramblings.

5. Regarding "flip flops", Bush has had quite a few. Like when he was governor, he said that U.S. troops should not engage in "Nation Building". Or the fact that he was opposed to the Dept of Homeland Security and the 911 Commission before he was for them. Or, pledging to bring in Osama "Dead or Alive" then saying "I don't know where he is.You know, I just don't spend that much time on him... I truly am not that concerned about him."[President Bush, Press Conference, 3/13/02. Here are a BUNCH of flip flops from our President:

6. The Clinton quote is very funny (If by 'is' you mean 'was'). But it's still not as funny as when Bush said "Who could have possibly envisioned an erection - an election in Iraq at this point in history?"

Disagreeing with your leader is understandable, if not condoned by me at times. BUT, berating your leader on a continuous basis is unaccepatble, period.

And no, I meant "is."

Lewis Black can confirm that one.

c'mon! post something new. and why are you so pissed off all the time anyway? you're like 23 years old. what weight could you POSSIBLY be carrying on your shoulders. man, you sound like some world-weary guy who just got back from world war II to find it's all gone to hell. Why don't you lighten up and stop trying to sound so mature and "ground down."

Good Call Bucko!!! *Sarcasm*

What about Canadians? They are as liberal as you can get these day s and smoking is very popular there. Oh no who to blame!?

At 11:03 AM, Blogger Realism said...

They are probably stressed out from having such crappy neighbors < /sarcasm>

At 11:23 AM, Blogger Disgruntled Car Salesman said...

Adrianne, the conservative party in Canadian is coming back to fruition. When they are in power, then they will be blamed.

Bucko, thanks for your concern, I don't care what you think. so Buck off.

Nothing that I want to post about.

Man, that was cold pal. I was only saying that often your posts are funny, other times a little negative. Anyway, thanks for the unnecessary insult there Ed Anger's America.

Why is everyone all about the ATTACK ATTACK ATTACK! these days.

"I don't agree with you, piss off."

It's lame.
