Humorless Cause Celeb

Lloyd Grove of the Washington Post interviewed well-known political philosopher (and occasional movie star) Susan Sarandon, who is helping promote an Alliance for Justice film about repression in America because, she says, “I’m frightened, I’m scared, I’m terrified most of all that the America that I love and cherish, that this democracy is at risk. The world is against this idea of a unilateral attack,” she continued, “yet we don’t hear anybody criticize it.”

With the possible exception of Sarandon, who approvingly quoted to us from a European newspaper editorial accusing President Bush and his cohort of trying to execute “a blueprint for American global domination.” When we inadvertently giggled, she scolded, “I don’t see what’s so funny about that.”

    Look at me!!! Look at me!!! I’m an aging boomer and demand to be heard!! What?? No one is listening?? My free speech is being suppressed!!

    Of course, my quote from overseas was printed, and so was the ad in the NYT, and I did get this interview in the WP, but still, my dissent is being stifled! They’re coming to pull out my fingernails!
