My George Clooney Moment

Now, don't get the idea that I'm a cheerleader for the United Nations, okay? I just thought this was one of those moments when George Clooney managed to surprise me, by saying something original for a Hollywood guy. Here's what Guanabee had to say: "George Clooney and the United Nations have teamed for what we think is a pretty well put-together PSA concerning peace and what, exactly, it means to bring about, or 'wage,' peace. Basically, it takes a little more than wearing a wristband or playing an acoustic guitar. Now if only we could get President Bush, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, Kim Jon Il, The Castros, Osama bin Laden, Hugo Chavez and maybe even Naomi Campbell to just sit down and listen to the wise words of George Clooney. And then maybe they can sing a song together? Maybe with Bono? It could happen."

Remember how some of his pals are yammering about how America should "do something" about Darfur? Well, maybe we should, and maybe we shouldn't. But can we at least finish up with Iraq first? And could these geniuses keep from bitching about it once we commit to being there? That is to say, after they're done bitching about Iraq?

Personally, I don't think they can, which makes me wonder why we should ever take them seriously, even when they're acting.
