Donald Sutherland: Bush will destroy our lives

Here are some words from Jack Bauer's father.

Choking back tears, COMMANDER-IN-CHIEF star Donald Sutherland warned this week: President Bush "will destroy our lives!" The star of the new ABC drama, which follows the first woman President of the United States, lashed out at the real White House during a dramatic sit down interview with the BBC. Sutherland ripped Bush and his administration for the war and Hurricane Katrina fallout. "They were inept. The were inadequate to the task, and they lied," Sutherland charged. "And they were insulting, and they were vindictive. And they were heartless. They did not care. They do not care. They do not care about Iraqi people. They do not care about the families of dead soldiers. They only care about profit." At one point during the session, Sutherland started crying: "We stolen our children's future... We have children. We have children. How dare we take their legacy from them. How dare we. It's shameful. What we are doing to our world."

I came across some hilarious comments on this from several different groups:

- Does anyone actually understand what he was saying? Or was this just Bush Hatred Syndrome run amok?

- "We're back to burning books in Germany," Sutherland said of NBC's editing out of Kanye West's comment on Bush during a hurricane relief telethon.Yes, Kanye West is certainly equivalent to Freud, Einstein, Thomas Mann, Jack London, and H.G. Wells. You betcha. The real question here is why anybody, anywhere, takes notice of anything these entertainers say that is not scripted for them.

What's next? Matthew Fox complaining about airline safety? James Spader commenting on tort reform? Mariska Hargitay making statements on the constitutional implications of revising the Miranda warning?

It is pretty interesting how fast President Bush's popularity is declining.

Thats true...I saw a documentary on Arnold that was pretty cool...It had three parts. Did you know he is some sort of evil cyborg sent from the future to kill everyone? And that he has many copies, some programed for good, others for evil and stuff. I learned alot. You can rent them on netflix. Search for "Termanator".
