Sean Penn spent $56,000 to take out a full-page ad in The Washington Post
criticizing President Bush’s stance on Iraq. Obviously Penn did some considerable method acting to play the mentally disabled character in his last movie.
The whole basis of his argument is that war is bad and that violence never solves anything. Then again, tell that to a Holocaust survivor, a Sufi in Afghanistan, or anyone else who has been liberated from tyranny by military action.
Not only is Penn a bad actor, but he clearly knows nothing of history either.
