Mel Gibson

I stopped respecting Mel Gibson when he did "The Last Temptation of Christ."
I think he was feasting on the fears and biases of radical fundamental Christians, and he knew it would fetch him several million bucks, which it did.
Now we learn he is not only a drunk, but an anti-Semitic drunk to boot.
Like so many professed religious people, booze figures in all too often.
Take Bush for example. Without a program, alcoholism might lie dormant but the warped thinking stays.
Gibson is just another drunk, like Bush.
Gibson has checked into Betty Ford, but Bush would never think of getting help. He's The Decider, after all.
Mel Gibson's drinking problems won't keep me from seeing his movies.
I stopped seeing his movies years ago.

Don't forget to watch Project Runway tonight!

Mel Gibson, in addition to being an anti-Semite, is a spoiled brat who's never matured. When making a movie in Maine, he ran a student at Bowdoin College off a path with a snowmobile. When she fell, he offered her an autograph. She was more interested in an apology, which she didn't get. We're supposed to be fucking grateful for being run off the path by the likes of this asshole.

God, I'm sick of the rich and famous.

The good news is that as the bastard ages he's looking more and more like Soupy Sales. Not totally ugly but not cute enough to get away with crap anymore.

I hope the Jews never forgive him for this. It sickens me.

Karen, what makes you think he's at Betty Ford as opposed to Hazelden or Sierra Tucson?

Karen Zipdrive said...

Holly, because I read that he's at Betty Ford.

Great column by Maureen Dowd on ol' Mel!

LuLu- feel free to post her column in these comments. TimesSelect has most of us blocked out. :(

Wish I could. I buy the ol' fashion wood-pulp version to prop up our crossword addiction.
