The pompous ass brought a photographer to document his attempt to personally rescue flood victims

Sean Penn's rescue bid sinks
From correspondents in New Orleans
05sep05

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.

The actor, known for his political activism, was seen wearing what appeared to be a white flak jacket and frantically bailing water out of the sinking vessel with a red plastic cup.

When the boat's motor failed to start, those aboard were forced to use paddles to propel themselves down the flooded New Orleans street.

Asked what he had hoped to achieve in the waterlogged city, the actor replied: "Whatever I can do to help."

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?"

The problem with old Sean is he actually started to believe his own hype. Now he's caught up in some sort of ultra liberal fantasy world. Remember the movie Recall with Arnonld? I think Seans fantasies have gone bad. Now he's just another dumbass in NO without a real plan.

Hey Sean,

Here's an idea for you. How about if you just bust open your bank account, scratch out a check and leave the rescues to the competent.

Whatcha think?
Link Posted: 9/4/2005 6:15:54 PM EDT
You know, this is sickening. They let asshats like Sean Penn and Jesse Jackson in for their pr bs tying up resourses and don't know wtf they're doing. Put they turn away Louisiana men that hunt and fish regularly and can definitely handle a boat (and actually qualified to do something other than pretend) from contributing real skills. Truly sad. Penn and Jackson wouldn't stay long either, the smell is getting extremely bad now.

I have NO idea........its not a PFD - (Personal flotation device - ie life jacket) .......he deserves a Darwin Award..........New Orleans does not need additional maritime evacuations of people.............IF he really wanted to help he'd drive a bus into the city. Fucking moron.

maybe the vest is some civilian Level II or IIA body armor lol.........think DEEP into his mind........he expects to be shot by Republican driven police or troops..............HIS MIND........not the rationale human being.....

That's what I was thinking; I can't figure out what else it would be. Probably picked it up in Hollyweird somwhere, or maybe it was a leftover movie prop or something. I expect he figured it projected an air of authority and importance befitting a "star" of his, uh, "magnitude".

Yeah well at least he TRIED to help. That's a lot more than any of you keyboard commanders can say for yourself! At least he was willing to put his life on.... Oh shit I can't do it. He's a fucking TOTAL retard/asshat/dumbshit/fuckhead and every fucking time he steps out of his house he proves it ever so clearly!


What an absolute shitforbrains!

All I need are some tasty waves, a cool buzz, and I'm fine.

His only acting job that he wasn't "acting" in.

It's standard police body armor. The kind normally worn under a shirt.

He wanted the most publicity at the cheapest price. He probably helicoptered in a rich friend to play the role of rescued poor survivor.

No shit! I was thinking the same thing myself. And if his purpose was to do whatever he could to help, why the fuck would you take up valuable space w/ a flippin' photographer? He is a total self righteous liberal asshole.

floun·der1 Audio pronunciation of "flounder" ( P ) Pronunciation Key (floundr)
intr.v. floun·dered, floun·der·ing, floun·ders

1. To make clumsy attempts to move or regain one's balance.
2. To move or act clumsily and in confusion. See Synonyms at blunder. See Usage Note at founder1.

Usage Note: The verbs founder and flounder are often confused. Founder comes from a Latin word meaning “bottom” (as in foundation) and originally referred to knocking enemies down; it is now also used to mean “to fail utterly, collapse.” Flounder means “to move clumsily, thrash about,” and hence “to proceed in confusion.” If John is foundering in Chemistry 1, he had better drop the course; if he is floundering, he may yet pull through.
