It's quite alright. I've been boycotting Sean Penn for years now.

Who loves Sean Penn more than anyone else in the whole wide world?
If you answered "Le French People" you are correct.

Dakar boycotting Bolivia may or may not be the right call, but who else has had the balls to bring up the subject of an American being held (without charges or criminal conviction) against his will for going on 2 years?

How is this something to make fun of Penn about? He is attempting to DO SOMETHING, which it would seem is beyond those of us here.

And spezjag, how does this (or Iraq) have anything to do with Penns (or anyone else's) sexualty? Is the F.A.G. an acronism for something else or are you just a total tool?

Nicely put brents347... A Dakar boycott may not be the right call but as you say he's addressing an issue of concern. There are always those who miss/don't care/or really don't get the point and take the opportunity to provide a knee-jerk response to dis someone they dislike (in this case I'm guessing political viewpoints)... Suggest they pull their heads out of the Dakar sands (or wherever it seems to be stuck) and constructively comment.

Well, that's why I try not to be TOO confrontational in a post like that. There is always the chance that I am completely off base, as I was here. My apologies.

I often don't like his politics, and of course it won't actually result in a boycott, but I think anytime anyone does something good it's worth acknowledging (especially if it's someone you don't like, it gives needed balance to my bias).

I like that it puts Bolivia on the spot. Well done Spicoli!



HOWEVER, he would have made a much larger splash in the media had he actually appeared before congress as Spicoli:

*** fade to imaginary congressional hearing ***



Spicoli: "So, like, when I heard about the bogus detention of Jacob Ostreicher, I was like, 'hey, that is most definitely NOT cool.' He should be at home chillin' with his lil' grandkids, not harshing in a Morales box. Dudes, let's get him home!"
