Cheers & Jeers

Cheers to Sean Penn for this insightful and thought-provoking comment on CNN's Larry King Live. The following exchange took place while Penn was on Larry King’s show to discuss his new movie All the King’s Men:

Larry King: “[The] character that you play…is a character who becomes affected by power, and then absolute power destroys him. Right? You can relate that to any political figure today, couldn’t you?”

Sean Penn: “Well, in 1932 Huey Long said something very interesting. It was, ‘Fascism will come to America, but likely under another name, perhaps anti-fascism.’ “
