I'm a celebrity so listen to me

Tom Hanks says supporters of Proposition 8 are "un-American":

“The truth is this takes place in Utah, the truth is these people are some bizarre offshoot of the Mormon Church, and the truth is a lot of Mormons gave a lot of money to the church to make Prop-8 happen,” he told Tarts. “There are a lot of people who feel that is un-American, and I am one of them."

I seem to remember the paroxysms of anger and rage "progressives" and liberals would demonstrate when conservatives would accuse them of being "un-American" for their own reasons -- and the fits were mostly justified.

Elsewhere, riding-on-her-dead-husband's-coattails moron Courtney Love enters Liz Allen territory:

Courtney Love claims she's not taking drugs anymore, but you wouldn't know it from comments she made in the Jewish magazine Heeb. Love, whose mother is Jewish but who describes herself as Buddhist, says of ex-husband Kurt Cobain's legacy: "Every time you buy a Nirvana record, part of that money is not going to Kurt's child, or to me, it's going to a handful of Jew loan officers, Jew private banks, it's going to lawyers who are also bankers . . ."

That, or Louie Farrakhan is writing her press statements.

Then there's Oliver Stone, who recently fawned (again) over Venezuelan strongman Hugo Chávez:

U.S. filmmaker Oliver Stone said he sees Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez as an energetic, principled champion of change in Latin American and hopes to capture the spirit of his drive to roll back U.S. influence in an upcoming documentary.

"The pure energy of the man is intoxicating," Stone said.

Of course, if Stone lived in VZ and attempted to make a film about Chávez that was, say, similar in tone to Stone's recent "W," he'd probably feel differently. A lot differently.
