No, actually I don't think so. Alot of celebrities are for the war, like Bruce Willis, and they are just as full of shit.

About the only one with something intellegent to say is Tim Robbins, and only because he sounds like he's been listening to Burbank on Halliburton.

I can only imagine celebrities would be pro-war because the closest THEY would get to the battlefield is a USO show.

Let THEM go out there and kill some Iraqis. God knows if THEY die, THEIR families are more than provided for.

Well Skull, you are obviously a cowardly bit of scuttling vomit, but that doesn't mean everyone else is a well.

Ironically, Bruce Willis actually did try to enlist just a short time ago, and when told he was too old, he made a pitiful attempt (political saaviness of zero) to pull some strings.

Some people really do have the courage to stand firmly behind their convictions.

I never said I WOULDN'T go. If I was called upon, I'll go. I legally have to anyway, right? But to get serious for a moment, we all know that if Bruce Willis does join the Army, and he goes and gets killed in Iraq, no problem, he's got MORE than enough money, and Demi Moore does as well, that his children have nothing to worry about, save admittedly losing their father.

On the other hand, my mother and my sister rely on me to a point. I moved out but they still can't do too well for themselves (She has heart problems that hamper her from working full time and making livable wages) and my sister is only 16, she;s working her ass off to make sure she gets into a good college so she doesn't need the added stress of being required to get a job. So that leaves me. She can more or less cover her bills but she needs help getting groceries. Which is where I come in. I make more than enough to keep myself fed and sheltered without making an insane amount of money, but no one else helps them. She can't apply for disability because they'd actually be getting LESS money, and if something were to happen to ME, my whole immediate family suffers and not just because I die.

Do you see my point now? Of course, if I could go overseas and KNOW I would come back alive, it wouldn't be a huge deal (save that my mom and sister might go a little hungry while I'm gone).

I'm not trying to make this into a sob story or pity story, I just think that you can't call me a coward without justification, and I'm showing you that there is no basis of justification in calling me a coward. Quite actually, I think I'd be a coward if I WASN'T helping my family out when needed. So save your harsh words for someone who is anti-war simply because they ARE cowardish.

Did Pantitude just post his very first Newsmax article? I'll get the cake and candles!

The US should construct a secret army of celebrities. They could give out autographs with pens that release a powerful nerve toxin.

I would assume he knew that going in. It probably was a publicity stunt. :/

I didn't say it was a SUCESSFUL publicity stunt ... merely that Willis is an idiot. Did that clear it up for you?

If you read the article, despite its suggestive wording, you can see Janeane's words were rather harmless as well. I suspect the line "It wasn't hip" was sarcasm, too.

Successful. Two C's, and perhaps it wasn't successful because it wasn't meant to be a publicity stunt in the first place. He sure as hell doesn't need the attention, and in a liberal friendly media, exactly what kind of appreciation do you think he would have earned?

Maybe he was just doing what, in his own confused way, he thought was right. I know its a stretch, but it's more plausible than your theory.

Him and Sarandon were trying to get a cop killer in Philly off death row. The asshole changed his name to Abdul Jamaal Mummia (or something like that)while he was on death row.

Ed Asner went on Nightline to plead his case that Mummia was set up. When Kopel asked him had he readthe trial transcript, Asner said no because it would be too long and boring and not really mean anything. How the fuck did he know whether or not Mummia got a fair trial? He didn't. And Surrandon is just as bad.

I really never give a shit what any celebrity has to say outside their own damn professions. Some actually do know what they are talking about, but the yare a minority.
