Free Speech for the Dumb: Woody Allen

Woody Allen, he is supposed to be this great director/actor, but I never saw it. He's a weird one though, having a relationship with his wife's adopted teenage daughter. Then he ended up marrying her. Not weird enough? He is defending Roman Polanski for having sex with a 13 by saying;

“He’s an artist, he’s a nice person, he did something wrong and he paid for it,” Allen continued. “They (his critics) are not happy unless he pays the rest of his life. They would be happy if they could execute him in a firing squad.”

Really? He paid for it? How? He hasn't spent a day in jail for the crime...yet somehow he has paid for it.

But believe it or not, that's not the quote that is getting Mr. Allen here today. It is his view on the president and how he should run things;

In an interview published by Spanish language newspaper La Vanguardia (that we translated), Allen says “I am pleased with Obama. I think he’s brilliant. The Republican Party should get out of his way and stop trying to hurt him." The director said "it would be good…if he could be a dictator for a few years because he could do a lot of good things quickly."

Wow...just wow. I got nothing.
