when celebrities speak, people listen. And laugh.
Stop the Presses! Hold the war talk! Celebrities have written a letter to Bush and he MUST.STOP.NOW.
Because world affairs revolve around what two-bit celebrities have to say, you know?
The letter reportedly is signed by stars including Kim Basinger, Matt Damon, Laurence Fishburne, Ethan Hawke, Uma Thurman, Samuel L. Jackson, Jessica Lange and Martin Sheen, publicists for the event said Monday.
I can hear the conversation in the White House now:
Condi Rice: President, we have to stop carrying on like this. We are hurting Mike Farrell's feelings!
Rumsfeld: And Ethan Hawke! His vast knowledge of war and foreign affairs is something we should not take lightly!
Bush: And let's not forget Uma Thurman. If she says the children of Iraq would be better off if we didn't force a regime change, then by God, we must stop now!
What kind of bloated ego does it take for these celebrities to think that their pleas and petitions could make any possible difference? Who the hell is going to take to the foreign policy ideas of Matt Damon seriously? I don't even take him seriously when he says he's an actor.
Farrell, who plays a veterinarian on the NBC drama ``Providence,'' previously compiled a celebrity-endorsed letter in June asking U.S. senators to vote against a plan to bury the nation's nuclear power waste at Nevada's Yucca Mountain.
Co-signers of that letter included Alec Baldwin and Tim Robbins, Rob Reiner, Barbra Streisand and Harry Belafonte.
On July 9, senators voted 60-39 in favor of the Yucca Mountain project.
Ok guys, go back to making crappy straight-to-cable movies and whining on your websites. Your fifteen minutes of political fame are over.
