Charlton Heston Dead

April 6, 2008

News tonight that actor and whack job Charlton Heston is dead at age 84. He gave us many memorable roles in the lavish film productions of the 50’s and 60’s. He also helped solidify a lesson we first learned by watching Ronald Reagan: that actors should stick to acting. The fact that this gun zealot was granted the nation’s highest civilian honor, the Presidential Medal of Freedom, came as a complete shock to me. I didn’t know that until I read his obit in this AP story.

Only the retarded Bush administration could bestow such an honor on a man whose claim to fame was a dubious acting talent and five years as a figurehead/poster-child for the NRA. Probably there was a contribution to the George W. Bush Presidential Library Fund. I think for this president we really ought to just call it a museum and be done with it. Bush was no reader, and he’s certainly not going to be leaving much evidence many documents behind. A Bush Library sounds too far-fetched.
