    Penn never got out of character from “I am Sam.”

  • Sandra123456

    The village idiot is on the loose again.

  • NYGino

    Penn is the poster child of Liberal Hollywood. He should just move to Venezuela and get it over with. He and any true American would be better off.

    • MiketheMarine

      Nah, he should stay here and we should initiate an 80% tax on the entertainment industry. Movie studios, stars, porn studios and stars and ALL professional atheletes.

  • Rshill7

    An open thread about an empty head. If his mustache were a bit shorter on each side he’d be the spittin’ image of Hitler.

    Penn is a malignant tumor, praising metastasis.

    • colliemum

      He’d need to get a proper haircut as well.

    • MiketheMarine

      Dear Lord,
      Please read the above.

      Amen

      • sjmom

        The Bible said “when two or three are agreed”. We’re agreed and the Lord has read.

        • MiketheMarine

          Cool, then he’ll be diagnosed and metastisized soon.

          Amen

      He does look a lot Hitleresque with a little tash trim! :-)

          • BlueGood

            Well Done!…LOL

      • Orangeone

        Mannerisms are similar as well! Look at that drug-induced expression. Is he using the Haiti donations to stimulate their drug economy?

      • http://no-apologies-round2.blogspot.com/ AmericanborninCanada

        You’re too much Wolfie! That scared me! lol!!

    • notebene

      Holy cow…I thought the same thing and you wrote it!

  • 4Hoppes2

    His “Very American” point of view is worth just about what it cost to click the stop button on the video. Too bad so many liberal Americans find him and Hugo as someone to venerate.

    • Rshill7

      As a non-liberal American, I find them both something to eviscerate, denigrate, and annihilate. Right upside their equally vacuous, piñatas.

      • MiketheMarine

        You are one poet sumbeach. B.E.Autiful.

    • MiketheMarine

      Venerate? or Cast(er)ate?

  • sjmom

    RS, I did not know but since I do now can only say I am not surprised. Maybe Sean is vying for Hugo’s job and thought if he praised him he would be considered for it?

    • Orangeone

      If that’s the case, I hope Chavez shares his radiation therapy with Penn! No sense underdosing it either.

      Edit: Thinking the other communist when I was typing..sorry. Well they could all share with Penn!

  • cabensg

    Here I thought he was a Castro man.

    • MiketheMarine

      You thought he’d been castrated? That’s wouldn’t be a bad idea. He shouldn’t be permitted to breed.

  • http://www.royaldukedesign.weebly.com/ SilentTexan

    We all know who it is since he spent the most of his year in this country and that is Hugo Chavez! What do I win? Plus, I’ve seen the headline already before. But it comes to nobodies surprise that he has such a man-crush on this slob. how very fitting, I think he must have reverted back to “high times”

  • http://no-apologies-round2.blogspot.com/ AmericanborninCanada

    I had a feeling, but I clicked on the link anyway. Now I need to go throw up, then have a hot shower, then seek forgiveness for the words I called this a$$ in my head. I completely loathe this ‘man’ with every fiber of my being.

    • las1

      See my post below… I think I put into words what your heart just could not bear to express.

    • MiketheMarine

      I DID NOT click the link. I like my own answer better than whatever the real answer is, anyway. Go up and have a look. I bet it’ll make you laugh, my quackie li’l Friend.

      ;-)

        ok lol. You and las1 made me lol. thank you myMarine. :-)

      • notebene

        Thank you for the much needed laugh!

        • MiketheMarine

          My pleasure. If we can’t laugh about some of this stuff, we’d all be crying and I haven’t bought any tissue company stocks yet. LOL

          • Orangeone

            Don’t buy Johnson & Johnson, the ObamaCare author is now a highly-paid employee of theirs.

            • MiketheMarine

              Fear not, Amber’s mom. I have exactly zero dollars in the stock market. I don’t trust those peeps any more than I trust politicians.

              :-)

  • las1

    Just what I thought… Chavez… surprise!

    Why do I always have the impression that Penn is just the male version of Janeane Garofalo. If there was a word for a male skank… I guess he would be it.

  • MiketheMarine

    Rosie O’donnell at an all you can eat buffett?

  • Rocco11

    Golly gee, why was there ever a Hollywood Blacklist?

    • MiketheMarine

      Hey, that’s not PC. The PC term is White list.

    I thought he meant the POS in the WH …

    My bad …

      meh, basically the same dear leaders. You guessed well mum.

      • colliemum

        The sad thing is that if the one goes, as looks probable, S.Penn will still have the other to ‘praise’.

    • MiketheMarine

      You were only off by a few shades of pigmentation.

            • MiketheMarine

              Me too, sweetie. Confession time. Some days when you guys don’t see me at all is because I’m busier than a one armed paper hanger but sometimes I just don’t have the patience and calm for politic so I just avoid the place. It isn’t our members, it’s the infuriating subject matter.

              I get it, doll.

              • http://no-apologies-round2.blogspot.com/ AmericanborninCanada

                Me too. Although I might have the odd day (like yesterday) when I barely make a peep- I know hard to believe I’d ever not talk, I always try and at least read the comments. They cheer me. :-D

                • MiketheMarine

                  Boy, do I agree. We have a spectacular collection of very witty, intelligent and funny family members. I take great pleasure in reading some of the super creative comments.

          Naw, don’t be sorry – it’s just that do tear up much more easily as I get older, especially when I see these brave lads do their duty for us all, while the left denigrate and besmirch them.

        I’m sorry BlueGood. I can’t imagine. Just a little as I do have friends and a family member over there too- but it’s different for spouses or parents. :-( I do pray that they can all come home. ((()))s

  • E. Lee Zimmerman

    Easy. He declared Scarlett Johannson ‘one of the most important forces on the planet.’

    What do I win?

  • Nukeman60

    I guessed Chavez, but I wanted to say Satan. I decided to go with one of the lesser minions (and it was a toss-up between Obama and Chavez – I can’t really tell the difference between the two these days).

    • colliemum

      As I’ve learned from MiketheMarine – its only a question of a few shades of pigmentation …

  • v.l.

    For someone that grew up in a socialist country, this is so sickening and insulting!! When I grew up, there was another American actor/singer, Dean Reed, parading with the East German pigs trying to explain to us how bad the western world is and how lucky we were; and then we were all ordered to smile and clap to his stupid music. I always wondered why is he doing that to us?

  • mikeinidaho

    I knew as soon as I saw the headline! No news here. I wonder when the communist will finally just move to Venezuela and be done with it. Or maybe he’s just waiting for Obama to move this country to total communism. In that case, he may not have to wait long!

    • 4Hoppes2

      I would have guessed Nelson Mandella for his necklacing advocacy, or maybe Che Guevara for his Marxism but Hugo was no surprise.

  • notebene

    Sean Penn is and has always been an arrogant ass! He’s a hack actor, who thinks he knows what’s best for everyone else, but he can only utter words like the puppet that he is. So, Chavez is his hero? How about Sean give away his millions, since he is so selfless and live with the 80% in Venezuela that live in poverty caused by this dictator monster hero of his? Go Sean Go! Show us what a truly selfless human being he is and please give up your citizenship to the USA while you’re at it! You deserve to fully embrace and experience the communist lifestyle that you long for!

  • http://twitter.com/SwTkthe1 Matthew Sullivan

    There just has to be something wrong with the leftist diet. 95% just do not age well at all.

    • Nukeman60

      It’s the hatred and vitriol working it’s way out through the years. The good news is they don’t have to be embalmed after they die – the blood has completely boiled away.

  • stage9

    I know this one….Hugo Chavez.

    • stage9

      That was my Captain America line…lol.

      Nick Fury: I don’t know about that, but it is powered by the cube. And I’d like to know how Loki used it to turn two of the sharpest men I know into his personal flying monkeys.

    I thought it would have been Bruce Springsteen. After all, didn’t he get Obama re-elected? I think I’m going to be ill.

    • NYGino

      For that matter Chris Christie could have been the one.

  • iaintlyin

    Hugo Chavez. Probably only because he hasn’t had dinner with Van Jones yet

  • bjohnson55

    Don’t have to look at the rest of the story or comments: Move to Venezuela and take that burnt out ex skank Madonna with you. It would only improve the gene pool in this country if you do.

    Lol… he’s no longer relevent. Ship him over to Venezuala… there are some tasty waves down there Spicoli.

  • opinionatedhermit

    My favorite, still, was when Penn went to Iraq in order to he a “Human Shield” so he could defend Saddam Hussein …..

  • Army_Pilot1967

    Why does it matter who or what Penn thinks????? He’s like so many other celebrities that believe they have an insight into world affairs that mere mortals (that would be most of us) can’t fathom? I could care less what he has to say about anything!
