Penn tells Obama off

Font Size:

Look out, Jon Lovitz. Here’s yet another celebrity who’s not worried about being called a racist for criticizing Obama’s policies and character. Take it away, Penn Jillette, AKA the guy from Penn & Teller who talks. Boy, does he ever…

WARNING: VERY BAD LANGUAGE AND CRITICISM OF THE GREATEST PERSON WHO HAS EVER LIVED

Wait. Is Penn saying that Obama is arrogant, pompous, and condescending? Yeah, right!

As we all know, drug use is a barrier to entry in the White House, unless you’re a Democrat. Also, not using any drugs at all is bad, if you’re a Republican. I’m just waiting for WaPo to remind us that Romney doesn’t even use caffeine. “Can we really trust a president who doesn’t even drink coffee, America?” That sort of thing. Bush is bad because he did drugs, and Romney is bad because didn’t. They both present obstacles to a Democrat Party Utopia, so hey, whatever works.

Anyway. Penn is an interesting guy. I don’t always agree with him, but even his most idiosyncratic opinions are arrived at honestly. And he doesn’t seem like the type to be intimidated by a wave of lefty hate for daring to stand up to The One. Hell, if Lovitz can fight ’em off, Penn should have no problem.
