Day By Day by Chris Muir February 23, 2008 – Dreaming of WrestlingDay By Day by Chris MuirMickey 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.
