Sean Penn, Jesse Jackson console each other at Hugo Chavez’s funeral

Why was Sean Penn in Venezuela for Hugo Chavez’s funeral? Because Chavez was a friend Penn was “blessed to have.”

Make that, “World leaders and Sean Penn and Jesse Jackson” attend dictator’s funeral.

Oh, and Iranian president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad was there as well, and gave the casket a quick smooch.

Even Mario Lopez is stumped.

“Scandal” star Josh Malina tries to explain the logistics.

Correction: We fixed a typo in our headline.

    Ok. I will say it. What you had at this “gathering”, was the absolute WORST this world has to offer, let alone the USA. I’ve asked before, gonna ask again: if our nation is so bad, so corrupt, so this, that, and the other….why do these douchebags stay??? They got on planes to get to the damned funeral, so pack their sh*t, and go and STAY!!! We won’t miss em!! Geez, Sean Penn ain’t done a damn thing since “Ridgemont High”, and that was 1982! And how strange that “Baby Daddy” Jesse Jackson can afford to fly to Caracas, but can’t afford to support his illegitimate kids. And these are the “heroes” of some segments of the left. Someone wanna explain to me where I’m off the mark????

    Where’s a drone when you need it? It would be preemptive, but it would solve so many problems.

      Damn!!!! Beat me to it!!! ~_^ *{hat tip}*

        There are very few personal problems that cannot be solved through a suitable application of high explosives – Scott Adams. Yes, that Scott Adams.

          I can picture Catbert saying that.

        • SpinMeNot

          Actually you are just quoting Mr. Adams version. A variant of the phrase has been used by US Army Sappers for much longer …

          The shining example of what cannot be solved with HE is the removal of a whale carcass from a beach: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8Vmnq5dBF7Y

          • waltermitty2012

            That was the one I could find with attribution. I think the SEALs have a similar expression too.

          • SpinMeNot

            My apologies if I came across as “corrective”, it was not my intention. I enjoyed the quote, and did not realize that Mr. Adams had a version.

            I cannot speak to the SEALs, but it would not surprise me in the least.

            oh, btw: Your user name is great, that is one of my favorite movies. Danny Kaye was brilliant in that film.

          • waltermitty2012

            No harm, no foul. It’s all good. Since the Chinese invented gunpowder, this expression probably originated there.

          Well, you know, if you have to be groped in public, I’d just as soon the groper be well dressed.

          just sayin …

      Obama only shoots at people having coffee at a cafe. by the way anyone know how many innocent bystanders were killed when a missile designed to destroy a main battle tank explodes in a crowd? just to kill a single mid level terrorist. why not use the drone to survail the suspect & guide military or local police forces to capture that terrorist? grill him for intelligence.

      • http://www.facebook.com/138900508 Patrick Dennehy

        I agree by and large. Drone strikes cause so much collateral damage and terrorist use people as human shields Then the radicals use the devistation to promote their anti American propaganda. I learned that from Homeland 😛

        Do they keep our boys out of the line of fire? Yes. They just should not be the end all be all.

    Now, give these two the gift of permanent residency in Venezuela and revoke their U.S. citizenship.

  • JerseyFresh12

    Can you imagine if this happened in the 1950s? Penn and Jackson would be brought up on charges of treason. Sad that we allow trash like this to live in our country.

  • Maxx

    Ah yes…the Marxist-loving, America-hating Hollywood liberal jets down to his beloved dictator and yet strangely enough, just before exiting the plane, looks at the pilot and says…

    “keep the engine running.”

    Was Sean Penn such a “Man of Peace” when he was bitch slapping Madonna!!??

  • capisce

    Academy of Motion Pictures announces that the inevitable Chavez bio-pic will sweep all awards year it is released. The rom-com, starring Sean Penn & Michael Moore and directed by Oliver Stone is expected to be the highest grossing date movie of all time.

    • TocksNedlog

      Sean Penn & Michael Moore together would definitely be the highest GROSSING date ever.

        lol “You had me at nationlize”

  • Miss Clairee

    This is in reference to Penn/Jackson photo above:

    Jackson: “I swear I heard that Ba$tard was on ice man….but I smell sumthin’, ….sumthin’ Gawd awful NASTY….I’m thinkin ’bout leavin’ this joint!”

    Penn: “Cool it man, cool it. The ops told me the mutha-fucka was chilled on ice, but you know….these Venezualeans….do they reeeeallly know how to “chill” ice?”

    Jackson: ” Last time I smelt sumthin’ this naaasty was when Tamara Holder dropped her drawers. Lord Gawd Almighty, Hell Fire, Burn in Hell was that cooch a stinkin’!!!!!!”

    Penn: “Listen man, I was married to Madonna. Do you really need to go there?”

    • Miss Clairee

      Jackson: “Man, did jew hear ’bout Demi wantin’ spousal support from my man Ashton? Ain’t nobody got time fa dat!”

    Sean Penn, a man without God that worships a mortal man as if that man were Jesus tending his flock.
    Jesse Jackson, a man of God that believes the delusion that Socialist dictators are doing God’s work.
    Ahmadinejad, a son of Islam that believes Allah wants him to control every aspect of his people’s lives.

    Can’t wait to see a blubbering Sean Penn go all I Am Sam while clutching Chavez’s coffin.

    1. Can’t wait to see jesse jackson and sean penn tweet pics of themselves with real live examples of chavez’s “concern” for the poor.
    2. Can’t wait for jackson and penn to announce that they are moving to Venezuela because the country is more aligned with what they believe.

    Ahmadinejad kisses coffin of #HugoChavez at state funeral. Sean Penn was there too. http://reut.rs/VQYiRI http://yfrog.com/g0y39frj

    Why didn’t ahmadinejad consider chavez an infidel? Or are only certain Christian nations considered impure?

  • RightThinking1

    I’m thinking the casket is an empty box. Back at the embalmers, they are mixing up some sort of epoxy to pump into Chavez. I’m getting a vision of the three witches in MacBeth..

  • BarryMiami

    Jackson and Penn aligning with the forces of darkness. How can anything they
    advocate or condone ever be taken seriously again. Years ago Andrew Young,

    and many Black leaders said that they would align with any force which would
    help them in their cause, the raising of Blacks from poverty and ignorance. They
    accepted Red and Yellow money. Now we see that they are still aligned with
    the darkest forces on the planet. We must take this into account from here
    forward. Will they visit Iran next? Aren’t their laws against private citizens
    conducting foreign policy on behalf of the U.S.?
