Clooney is a (small L) liberal

Who would thunk it 😉 [via Miguel]

First he directs Good Night and Good Luck, and then stars in Syriana (which is excellent, but not quite as amazing as I’d been led to believe). I sense a theme there.

The best pull quote from the piece:

The fear of being criticized can be paralyzing. Just look at the way so many Democrats caved in the run up to the war. In 2003, a lot of us were saying, where is the link between Saddam and bin Laden? What does Iraq have to do with 9/11? We knew it was bullshit. Which is why it drives me crazy to hear all these Democrats saying, “We were misled.” It makes me want to shout, “Fuck you, you weren’t misled. You were afraid of being called unpatriotic.”

Amen to that.
