George Clooney Ego Explodes . .

. . . . Blames Himself for John Kerry Defeat

By Jim Roberts - January 15, 2006 - The National Ledger

George Clooney, who it seems considers himself a terrorism expert, now may believe himself to be an A-list political consultant if a report from the UK is to be believed. The published report makes that claim that the 'Syriana' actor is the reason that John Kerry was defeated in 2004.

Clooney speaks, voters listen? No - this is not satire.

The report seems to originate with Contact Music UK and the website notes that the actor "was one of several screen stars invited to ride on Kerry's election train." The claim - it all went downhill for the Democrat when Clooney stayed away.

CMUK quotes Clooney: "Kerry asked me to ride on his train - he had a train going cross-country after he was nominated and some actors went on board. I called him and explained that I couldn't do it."

The result. "I'd hurt him. I'd actually caused him harm at the polls."

Yea, that did it. The American voter hangs on George Clooney's every word to see which candidate they should vote for something as important as the president.

Nice ego.

Here's a glimpse of Clooney as a 'politico' as he earlier tried to explain why the suicide bombers in his film "Syriana" are sympathetically depicted as pious heroes while all the Americans in the movie are greedy or homicidal cynics.

"They [the terrorists] are, in a way, the most sympathetic, but I think that's important," Clooney said in a videotaped interview shown on Fox News Channel.

"Because if you are going to fight a war on terror, which is not a state that you can go and bomb, then you need to understand what it is that creates the people who would do such horrible things, rather then just saying - labeling them as evildoers."

Good luck selling all that on the campaign trail.

Perhaps the 2008 Democratic nominee for president will have George Clooney's assistance and he can sell the whole, 'terrorists are not evil bit,' to the American voter.

Jim, you have said all that needs to be said. Here . . . in a nutshell . . . . is the problem with the democratic party. They really do think that the people who killed 3,000 Americans on 9/11 are the good guys and Americans are the bad guys.
