Agree with Sean Penn or go to prison

Popehat | Ken | Why Does Jeff Spicoli Hate Free Speech?

Sean Penn, appearing (perhaps as part of the terms of his probation) on Politically Incorrect, achieved the impossible: he managed to sound like even more of a dick than that smirking feculent pus-crust Bill Maher. Penn transcended satire of himself in the course of defending his BFF Hugo Chavez:
PENN: The collaborative opportunity in Haiti, when you talk about Hugo Chavez, and some of the other people who are demonized, and you know, when some of these countries accuse us of an occupation — where I believe this was strictly a humanitarian action by the United States military, and an incredible one – I’m a little sympathetic. Because every day, this elected leader [Chavez] is called a dictator here, and we just accept it! And accept it. And this is mainstream media, who should – truly, there should be a bar by which one goes to prison for these kinds of lies.
Yes, that’s the sound of an Academy Award winning American actor saying that journalists should go to prison for saying that Hugo Chavez is a dictator.

Sean Penn shouldn’t go to prison. But he ought to be treated like the tyranny-apologizing jackass fanatic he is.
That's why I will never hustle out the door to see Sean Penn movies.

And I still think Mr Hand should have failed Spicoli.
