HOLLYWOOD KUDOS........


I am constantly ripping Hollywood a new one on my blog. Today I am giving kudos where kudos are due. Angelina Jolie has proven to be an objective voice for the U.N. and I have a new found respect for her. She has written a courageous op-ed piece for The Washington Post and should be commended for her Humanitarian efforts and her voice of reason in this debate. She argues for the troops to remain in Iraq as a humanitarian effort now that the surge is working. Here is a link to her article:

Nikki, that's a great op-ed you linked to. I'm not going to argue here about whether the surge is working. I just wanted to say that Ms. Jolie is absolutely correct. We need to help the 4+ million Iraqis who have been displaced as a result of the invasion. If we fired all of the contractors in Iraq and paid Iraqis to rebuild their country, I think it would help move things along and might give people a reason to not blow themselves up.

And don't let the GOP see you complimenting a Hollywood actor. They'll take away your membership card!
