I love it when celebrities do stupid shit. It's fueled by my very, very narrow tolerance (okay, more like thinly-veiled hatred) of the so-called "elite" in America. So watching them screw up is, well ... fun. It's my only vice...I mean it, honest...
So you can imagine how giddy I was when I found out Sharon Stone has got herself into this...
From Guardian UK:
Sharon Stone is facing a ban on the showing of her films in China after suggesting the recent earthquake that killed up to 67,000 people may have been the result of "bad karma" over the country's occupation of Tibet.
Oh really? Do tell, please...
"I've been concerned about how should we deal with the Olympics, because they are not being nice to the Dalai Lama, who is a good friend of mine," she said.
He's against boycotting the Olympics. He's said so. Maybe I'm more of a friend of his than you. Or are you more of a "Carl Spangler" kind of friend? So you got that going for you...which is nice.
"And then all this earthquake and all this stuff happened, and I thought, is that karma - when you're not nice that the bad things happen to you?"
Sharon Stone is living proof that a 0.4-second glimpse of your girly bits will catapult you much farther than you ever deserve to go. I know, I know, it was trickery by the director, but you know, this underwear stuff, it's got something going for it! But anyway, that's old (ass)hat.
No Sharon, it's not karma. It's plate tectonics. Ask your girly bits. They may know what it is.
Just goes to show you that ultra-reactionary religious zealots aren't the only people who think like that. (And yeah, this guy is scary...been there, driven through Topeka, seen his minions on the street with their signs...scary.) Maybe Sharon's not at the center of the circle of people who think that way, but I couldn't help but draw the line. Sharon's just an asshat. This guy is ... well ... decency really prevents me from posting my assessment.
Oh. And if you didn't click the link in the article, watch the video. It pulls it together nicely. Actually, I think Carl Spangler is more articulate than she.
You go further than you ever deserve to, and sooner or later you're going to look like an asshat. Congratulations, Sharon, you are Cthulhu's Family Restaurant's first ever Asshat of the Week!
Of course, nobody gets this award without beating some stiff competition. So, I give you the runners up:
Michele Malkin for her ever so poignant and pertinent piece on what is the true threat to America...Rachel Ray's scarf. But since Dr. Momentum and Derek beat me to the issue and handled it better than I ever could, I had to find something new and fresh. Besides, they're talking about fucktards. I'm working in asshats here.
Mark Madden for his absolutely idiotic and tasteless comments about Senator Kennedy's brain tumor. Dude, you don't even rate me making fun of you.
