Classic Penn, anyway. We can always count on him to bring the crazy.
Sean sat down last night with the illustrious Piers Morgan to discuss The Issues. Naturally, that pesky Tea Party came up:
Penn: Let’s go to the Tea Party influence on Congress and that stuff. I think there’s a mental health problem in Congress. This would be solved by committing them by executive order, I think, because these are our American brothers and sisters. We shouldn’t be criticizing them, attacking them … this is a cry for help.
Musket: We literally commit people like Ted Cruz?
Penn: He’s, he’s my American brother. We should take care of him. He’s in trouble.
Musket: Actually have him committed?
Penn: Yeah, I think it’s a good idea.
Of course he thinks it’s a good idea! Who better to pronounce people insane than Sean Penn, professional insane person?
@imsure Umm… is it "Doctor" Penn now? Like he should be the individual assessing one's mental faculties? Suggestion to Sean: Please STFU!

Shorter Sean Penn: I want the state to declare my political opponents as mentally ill and commit them to institutions.

Maybe they should be horsewhipped, too.
Chris Noth and Sean Penn both deride tea party advocacy? What more could you want? I'd take that as approval.
