Sean Penn's Rescue Boat Almost Sinks.... Kind Of Like His Acting Career

Herald Sun News article on Penn Sean Penn continues to go off the deep end. Whether he's bouncing around the Middle East on some bizarre fact finding mission that no educated person would take seriously, or acting the idiot in New Orleans, he comes off as nothing more than another loud mouthed liberal actor thinking he can save the world from the terrible injustices of America. The picture says it all. What makes this story truly hysterical is Penn thinking he can accomplish rescuing anything or anyone in this small boat when it's crammed full of his posse. He even brought his personal photographer. How much more self-important vanity can this clown show? Since Penn really wants to help, why doesn't he put up a few dozen refugees in one of the many unused homes he has? Something tells me it's not going to happen. Sean, you're almost as bad as Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton, looking for some way to keep your name in the news. Fox News also caught former VP and Presidential also ran Al Gore in Louisiana to survey something or other over the weekend. Penn should have asked Gore to come with him. If his boat had actually sank, Penn could have used "The Wooden One" as a personal flotation device. Sean Penn's rescue bid sinks From correspondents in New Orleans 05sep05 EFFORTS by Hollywood actor Sean Penn to aid New Orleans victims stranded by Hurricane Katrina foundered badly overnight, when the boat he was piloting to launch a rescue attempt sprang a leak. Penn had planned to rescue children waylaid by Katrina's flood waters, but apparently forgot to plug a hole in the bottom of the vessel, which began taking water within seconds of its launch. The actor, known for his political activism, was seen wearing what appeared to be a white flak jacket and frantically bailing water out of the sinking vessel with a red plastic cup. When the boat's motor failed to start, those aboard were forced to use paddles to propel themselves down the flooded New Orleans street. Asked what he had hoped to achieve in the waterlogged city, the actor replied: "Whatever I can do to help." With the boat loaded with members of Penn's entourage, including a personal photographer, one bystander taunted the actor: "How are you going to get any people in that thing?" What a dumbass.
