Sean Penn: Peace Activist. But More Importantly: Smoker

Ya gotta love the Drudgereport. It takes a story on Progressive Democrats of America about Cindy Sheehan and Sean Penn's peace activism

PDAmerica


then pulls out one single sentence and makes it their headline. Not "Bunch of Pinko Peaceniks Meet and Sing" or "Annoying Cindy Going Public Again" or anything relevant to the topic of the meeting or Bush's policies in Iraq. No, it was this:

SEAN PENN: TOUGH TO QUIT SMOKING 'CAUSE OF BUSH STRESS

Hey. Nothing wrong with ignoring the story of a multi-hour meeting and making it about a throwaway answer to a one second question. He's just telling it like it is, right? After all, like his bedfellows at FoxNews, he reports, you decide.

To be fair to Sludge, the article he linked (by a Dem organization, no less) to did feature the quote despite being awfully short.
