One Great Man, One Stupid Woman

Both from IMDB.com,

He's done a lot for the troops and for children in Iraq. We need more like him.

Sinise Changes Lives in Iraq
Oscar-nominated actor Gary Sinise has used his star power to help rebuild the lives of Iraqi school children. The Forrest Gump actor co-founded Operation Iraqi Children - an organization which sends out classroom supplies to improve children's education in the war torn nation. On visiting the country, the big-hearted star was horrified to find some schools without paper, pencils or books and immediately set up the charity upon his return to America. He says, "One school I visited, rebuilt by the troops, it originally didn't have a floor. It was just dirt and there were no windows. It was just kind of cinderblocks." To date, his organization has sent out more than 100,000 school kits but Sinise is modest about his achievements. He says, "It's just a way to give back, just a way to do something to help out."
And we need fewer idiots like this one.

Madonna Slams Bush

Madonna has urged US citizens to turn against President George W. Bush over his failure to provide adequate aid for the victims of Hurricane Katrina in August. The singer was "devastated" when Michael Moore's documentary Fahrenheit 9/11 didn't stop Bush winning the 2004 election and insists America must now realize his incompetence. She says, "I was just frigging devastated, It was a real sad day. I don't get how people can have all these facts and still turn away from them. 9/11 was too ambiguous. You couldn't prove how the government was somehow in on the deal. You could say 'Oh that's just Michael Moore'. New Orleans was undeniable irresponsibility."
What an idiot! Of course the "mockumentary" Fahrenheit 9/11 didn't stop us from re-electing President Bush. Only stupid Leftists fall for things like that.

We aren't turning away from the facts. Rather, we know the facts and used them to re-elect a worthy man. John Kerry, on the other hand, is an arrogant, lying jerk, who used his "service" in Vietnam and then turned around and slapped his fellow veterans.

Madonna should stick to her little vulgar songs and stay out of mature discussion.
