Day By Day by Chris Muir

Mickey Rourke failed to win the Academy Award Oscar last night for Best Actor with Sean Penn winning the award instead.

Flap wonders if Rourke’s comments about President Booooshhhhh deep sixed his selection?

“President Bush was in the wrong place at the wrong time, I don’t know how anyone could have handled this situation,” Rourke told Britain’s GQ in the magazine’s February issue.

Rourke said Bush wasn’t given much of a choice but to respond to the Sept. 11 terror attacks, and that the War on Terror goes way beyond his presidency.

“It’s too easy to blame everything on one guy,” Rourke told the magazine. “These are unpredictable, dangerous times, and I don’t think that anyone really knows quite what to do.”

Rourke, who won a Golden Globe on Sunday for his performance in “The Wrestler,” says that after 9/11 even he wanted to do something about terrorism.

Or was it Hollywood’s obsession and preocupation with the homosexual lifestyle that propelled Sean Penn?

Take your pick.

Charlton Heston always made Flap’s day a little bit better and brighter.

Legendary actor, civil rights leader and political activist Charlton Heston passed away today, at the age of 84. He died at his home with Lydia, his wife of 64 years, at his side. Mr. Heston was loved by his two children, Fraser Clarke Heston and Holly Heston Rochell, and his three grandchildren, Jack Alexander Heston, Ridley Rochell and Charlie Rochell.

Rest in peace…….


Gwyneth Paltrow Watch: “I’m Proud to Be American”

U.S. actress Gwyneth Paltrow blows a kiss to her fans as she attends the shooting of an MTV live show in Rome’s Pincio terrace November 10, 2004. Paltrow insisted on Monday that contrary to a recent article in a European newspaper, she feels ‘proud to be American’ and would never compare her homeland unfavorably to Britain.

Reuters: Gwyneth Paltrow denies disparaging America

Oscar-winning actress Gwyneth Paltrow insisted on Monday that contrary to a recent article in a European newspaper, she feels “proud to be American” and would never compare her homeland unfavorably to Britain.

In a statement issued through People magazine’s Web site, Paltrow said she was “deeply upset” by remarks attributed to her by the Portuguese newspaper Diario de Noticias, which quoted the actress as saying: “The British are much more intelligent and civilized than the Americans.”

“I never, ever would have said that,” said Paltrow, 34, who is married to British rock star
Chris Martin, the lead singer of Coldplay, and resides part time with him and their two children in London.

Well, what did Gwyeth say and when did she say it? Did the Portugese press make up the quotes?

Here is what she said in Britain January 27th of this year:

“I love the English way, which is not as capitalistic as it is in America. People don’t talk about work and money; they talk about interesting things at dinner parties. I like living here because I don’t tap into the bad side of American psychology, which is ‘I’m not achieving enough, I’m not making enough, I’m not at the top of the pile.’ It’s just kind of like, I am.”

And what Gwyneth said to the Canadian press September 14, 2005:

“…I feel like we’re really in trouble. I just had a baby and thought, ‘I don’t want to live there.’(in the United States). “Bush’s anti-environment, pro-war policies are a dis. . . .”.

So, it is OK to be against President Bush (she supported John Kerry in 2004) and then let it slip (when no one but foreign press are watching) that you dislike America(ns) or does Gwyneth fear a Dixie Chick moment?

Flap thinks she will desperately try to avoid the Natalie Maines treatment.

But, I don’t think we have heard the end of this story.

“I feel so lucky to be American,” she said. “I feel so proud to be American.”

Paltrow denies giving an interview to the Portuguese daily, though she did speak at a news conference in Spanish, according to People.

“This is what I said,” Paltrow explained. “I said that Europe is a much older culture, and there’s a difference. I always say in America, people live to work, and in Europe, people work to live. There are positives in both.”

She added: “Obviously, I need to go back to seventh-grade Spanish.”

Face saving or Career saving speech?

Perhaps Gwyneth should SHUT UP and ACT.

Stay tuned………

Gwyneth Paltrow and Mother Blythe Danner

AFP: US actress Gwyneth Paltrow prefers British dinner talk

Oscar-winning US actress Gwyneth Paltrow feels dinner talk is far more interesting in her adopted homeland Britain than back in her native country.

“I love the English lifestyle, it’s not as capitalistic as America. People don’t talk about work and money, they talk about interesting things at dinner,” she told “NS,” the weekend magazine supplement of daily Portuguese newspaper Diario de Noticias on Saturday.

“I like living here because I don’t fit into the bad side of American psychology. The British are much more intelligent and civilized than the Americans,” the 34-year-old added.

Paltrow, who won a best actress Oscar for 1998’s “Shakespeare in Love,” lives in London with British band Coldplay’s frontman Chris Martin whom she wed in 2003.

Flap really wants to listen to a California high school graduate who got her start in the movie business because of her parents and a pretty face. She is sooooo intellectual.

PLEASE………

But, maybe not since ……

According to documents filed with the Federal Election Commission, Gwyneth Paltrow contributed $1,500 to John Kerry‘s campaign for President in 2004, and also contributed $2,000 to EMILY’s List and $2,500 to the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee. The FEC documents also list her home address as being in New York City, though the actress lives in London.

By the way, this is NOT the first time that Gwyneth and her mom have trashed America.

Michelle Malkin notices the rehash of anti-American comments by the shallow ingrate that is Gwyneth Paltrow – all with a high school education.

Guess it is not what you know but who your parents are or who you sleep with……..

Cox & Forkum: Stone Cold

Cox & forkum: Stone Cold

From CNN: Oliver Stone: ‘I’m ashamed for my country’.

Filmmaker Oliver Stone blasted President George W. Bush Thursday, saying he has “set America back 10 years.”Stone added that he is “ashamed for my country” over the war in Iraq and the U.S. policies in response to the attacks of September 11.

“We have destroyed the world in the name of security,” Stone told journalists at the San Sebastian International Film Festival prior to a screening of his latest movie, “World Trade Center.” The film tells the true story of the survival and rescue of two policemen who were trapped in the rubble of the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001, after they went to help people escape.

“From September 12 on, the incident (the attacks) was politicized and it has polarized the entire world,” said Stone. “It is a shame because it is a waste of energy to see that the entire world five years later is still convulsed in the grip of 9/11.

“It’s a waste of energy away from things that do matter which is poverty, death, disease, the planet itself and fixing things in our own homes rather than fighting wars with others. Mr. Bush has set America back 10 years, maybe more.”

The director of blockbusters such as “Platoon,” and “JFK” said the U.S. reaction to the attacks was out of proportion.

“If there had been a better sense of preparation, if we had a leadership that was more mature,” he said. “We did not fight back in the same way that the British fought the IRA or the Spanish government fought the Basques here. Terrorism is a manageable action. It can be lived with,” said Stone.

Flap is sooooo reassured from a LEFTY MORON filmmaker……
