What a moron!

SondraK looks in on Sean Penn:

Academy-Award winning actor Sean Penn bluntly told President Bush to take his Iraq war and shove it during a packed anti-war town hall meeting Saturday morning at the Grand Lake Theater, convened by Congresswoman Barbara Lee and Oakland City Council member Jean Quan.

“You have broken our country; you have broken our hearts. The needless blood on your hands ... is drowning the freedom, the security and the dream that America might have been, once healed up from Sept. 11, 2001,” Penn said.

“But now we are encouraged to self-censor any words that might be perceived as inflammatory, if our belief is that we should stop this war today. We cower as you point your fingers telling us to support our troops—well, you and the smarmy pundits in your pocket—those who bathe in the moisture of your blood-soaked underwear can take that noise and shove it, because we will be snowed no more.”

Penn, who lives in Marin County, told the audience, “Let’s fight this president and put him in (expletive) jail.”

The meeting, which drew a crowd of more than 600 who filled the theater, was the largest anti-Iraq war event in Oakland in years. The morning ended with a march, led by Lee and Quan, of about 300 from the theater at the edge of Lake Merritt to City Hall in downtown Oakland.

The first thing that comes to mind is that Penn is stupid. Not just that he believes some stupid things, but that he is a person of very minimal intelligence. I really can't believe that he clocks any higher than 90 on the IQ scale. And 90 is probably being generous.
