Now, I know we’re saved. Barack Obama has called out the heavy weight thinkers … like George Clooney.
I know …, thankfully (hopefully) it wasn’t about anything terribly important like the financial meltdown that Obama promoted for two years to get elected. Obama’s political rhetoric for the past two years is proof that, if you say something frequently enough … and enough people believe you, it might actually happen.
A diversion … back to Clooney.
George Clooney is proof that you don’t have to have a college degree to be successful. You simply need what some people might consider a pretty face, a shallow and egocentric personality, the appropriate amount of political correctness, and the good fortune to actually embrace a cause (Dafur) that most people can sympathize with … even if they won’t do anything about it.
Viola!! The perfect recipe for a U.N. “Messenger of Peace”.
This guy isn’t even a good actor. I once asked one of my daughters what she thought of George Clooney. Her response was (while sticking her finger in her mouth and gagging), “He’s the only person that could ruin a ‘Batman’ movie. George Clooney is only good at playing … George Clooney … and he was too shallow and egocentric to be a comic book character.”
In a recent CNN interview, with Joy Behar of “The View” filling in for Larry King, Ms. Bahar, in her typical airhead fashion, asked Ann Coulter if she would turn down a date with George Clooney if he were driving an electric car (Apparently, there was some disagreement over electric cars and Clooney is supposed to make them okay.Wow! Besides, who would want to spend an evening with their date perpetually in front of a mirror?). I think Ms. Coulter dodged the boneheaded question rather artfully and diplomatically, neither insulting Mr. Clooney nor giving Ms. Bahar’s question any credance. Now, Ms. Bahar is proof that even an MA in English doesn’t prevent a person from choosing “style, … or lack thereof, over substance”.
Fortunately, Clooney has been resistant to having children. As far as I can discern, the world continues to be blessed. Maybe his sexual exploits are like his political rhetoric (and acting) … nothing but blanks.
