Harry is at it again

Harry Belafonte again attacked the current adminstration. This time he compare the department of Homeland Security to the Nazi Gestapo AND called the president a liar.

Harry B. is quoted as saying:

"We've come to this dark time in which the new Gestapo of Homeland Security lurks here, where citizens are having their rights suspended,"

AND

"Bush, he said, rose to power "somewhat dubiously and ... then lies to the people of this nation, misleads them, misinstructs, and then sends off hundreds of thousands of our own boys and girls to a foreign land that has not aggressed against us."

I guess the only way a washed-up, semi-famous, has-been, former entertainer can stay in the lime light is to harshly criticize the current president.

What I want to know is when the hell did our country officially anoint these Hollywood and entertainment idiots as statesmen for our economic/social/global policies? And why in the hell do we even care what they think?
