Nice to see some in the entertainment industry with some common sense very little of it coming out of Hollywood or Washington for that matter. Consider those hags like whoopie or behar on the view or the washed up liberal looney Susan Sarandon (and she has children of her own it makes you wonder would it be ok if it were her daughter?) who came out in support of Pervert Polanski and then of course the obama czar pick who covered up sex with a child. Did you know about that? Many do not with the mainstream media who seems to cover up anything that would reflect negatively on the obama administration or as the Washington Post says..
"That approach worked for most of the media, which carried water for President Obama's scandal-plagued pick. Stonewalling scandal is not what Americans were expecting from an administration that promised to usher in an "unprecedented level of openness in government." Instead, a pattern of presidential obfuscation is developing."
For more than a 1 1/2 weeks now, The Washington Times has tried unsuccessfully to get the Obama administration to answer questions about the controversies surrounding Kevin Jennings, the president's "safe schools czar." On Wednesday, Mr. Jennings released a five-sentence statement regarding his knowledge about the sexual abuse of a high school sophomore named Brewster when he was a teacher at the teenager's school. After repeated denials and backpedaling, Mr. Jennings finally halfheartedly admitted this week that perhaps covering up sex between an adult and a high school student might not have been totally appropriate. "I can see how I should have handled this situation differently," he said.
Well I can see how the obama administration could handle it better my idea would be to have him removed immediately and to stop placing these kind of people in positions to begin with! Now to me the decency displayed by Chris Rock is part of what makes him a real star!
BUT this is my absolute favorite response and the Star of this is surprisingly a News Woman! Cokie: Polanski Should Be Shot
Kirstie Alley just got some high-profile company.
Chris Rock and Jay Leno proved last night that not even Roman Polanski's recent extradition-fighting arrest is too taboo to joke about.
"This Polanski thing got me, man," Rock said. "What the hell? People are defending Roman Polanski 'cause he made some good movies?"
"Yeah, I don't get it," Leno added, before Rock continued on.
"Are you kidding me? He made good movies 30 years ago, Jay. Come on! Even Johnnie Cochran don't have the nerve to go, 'Well, did you see O.J. play against New England?' "
His incredulity didn't stop there.
"What the? Come on, man, she's 13. Thirteen! I've seen some hot 16-year-olds that look 18, 17[-year-olds] that look 18...Thirteen is 13. Nobody gets away with having sex with a 13-year-old."
He even went so far as to summon the word on everyone's mind—everyone, that is, but the California legal system.
While Polanski originally faced charges of rape and sodomy, he pleaded guilty to the lesser charge of unlawful sex with a minor. He fled the country before sentencing.
"I mean, come on...rape. It's rape," Rock said. "Rape's number two. Okay, it's murder, then rape. It's number two. In the United States, we want to capture Osama Bin Laden and murder him. We're not gonna rape him. That would be barbaric!"
Plenty of Hollywood stars initially sided with Polanski, seemingly forgiving him for plying a 13-year-old with champagne and Quaaludes and then having unlawful sex with her simply because he knows his way around a video camera. But Rock and Leno are the latest in the increasingly vocal opposition, joining the likes of Alley, Jewel and Sherri Shepherd.
Even some of Team Polanski's most ardent backers seem to be stepping back from their initial rush to his defense. This week, Poland's prime minister and French officials both urged supporters not to lose sight of the gravity of the charges he faces—namely, having sex with a CHILD!
