The streets all conspire and the lamppost can't stop crying

Oh. My. Gawd. Becky.

Bringing the "Big Dumb Sheep" files roaring back onto the front page today is professional Ass-Clown Sean Penn and his... er... "rescue" effort.
EFFORTS by Hollywood actor Sean Penn to aid New Orleans victims stranded by Hurricane Katrina foundered badly overnight, when the boat he was piloting to launch a rescue attempt sprang a leak.

Penn had planned to rescue children waylaid by Katrina's flood waters, but apparently forgot to plug a hole in the bottom of the vessel, which began taking water within seconds of its launch.
Sweet, sweet irony. It's called the drain plug for a reason, Sean.

Little Green Footballs has a photo of him valiantly bailing out the boat with a little plastic cup. You have to see it to believe it. It also explains the people taunting him as reported at the bottom of the article.
It turns out that Sean Penn's rescue craft is a small bass boat that he's already loaded with people -- including his personal photographer.
With the boat loaded with members of Penn's entourage, including a personal photographer, one bystander taunted the actor: "How are you going to get any people in that thing?"
He'd be lucky to fit 2 extra passengers in that dinky boat before it capsizes. It's obvious he's just capitalizing on the tragedy to get in some good media whoring. How much more self-serving can someone get?

Junk Yard Blog reports that when his own rescue operation didn't float, Penn begged rescue crews to stop what they were doing and go pick up his friends. I wonder how many times he had to ask "Do you know who I am?!?" before they did it.
What an arrogant prick.
