Sean Penn channeled his inner Morgan Freeman this week.

The actor raised eyebrows by calling Tea Party members a bunch of racists, drawing a stinging rebuke from the national coordinator of the Tea Party Patriots.

Penn referred to Tea Partiers as the “Get the N-Word Out of the White House Party” on Piers Morgan Tonight, saying its members want to "lynch" President Obama.

That sentiment and word choice did not sit well with many.

Said Mark Meckler, co-founder and national coordinator of the Tea Party Patriots:

“I’m fairly certain that Sean Penn has never been to a tea party or met anyone who belongs to a local tea party. I’d be happy to sit down and speak with him if he’s ever interested in really speaking with one of us and learning what we are about instead of just slandering millions of his fellow American citizens with racist hatred."

"While protected by the 1st Amendment, this rhetoric has no place in reasonable discourse in America. Then again, no one ever accused Sean Penn of ‘reasonable discourse.’”

We know where Herman Cain stands on this, but what about you?

Is the Tea Party racist?

Are you ready for some insanity?

When Hank Williams Jr. stopped by Fox & Friends this morning to discuss politics (absurd in itself), few could have imagined the views that the country music singer and longtime voice of Monday Night Football espouses.

Williams described this year’s “Golf Summit” between President Barack Obama and Speaker of the House John Boehner as “One of the biggest political mistakes ever.” Sadly, that was Hank's high water mark for intelligence:

When the co-hosts asked Williams to explain, he offered this scintillating insight: “Come on! Come on! It would be like Hitler playing golf with Netanyahu!”

To the Fox News panel's credit, they were clearly dumbstruck, turned off and unsure of how to respond to such an outrageous comment in a live interview.

Still, you have to question the wisdom of having this guy on your show in the first place. You can't find an intelligent conservative voice to talk politics?

Your take: Is Obama a socialist?

 

UPDATE: ESPN has yanked Williams, saying in a statement: "We are extremely disappointed with his comments, and we have decided to pull the open from tonight’s telecast."

UPDATE #2: ESPN has fired Hank for good. He dubiously claims he quit, citing a violation of the First Amendment, which is just a ridiculous statement. Either way, he's out.

Mark Halperin must be watching too much Tracy Morgan stand-up.

During a live appearance on MSNBC's Morning Joe today, the political analyst was asked about President Obama's behavior yesterday during a meeting with Republicans, inquired about whether or not the show was on a seven-second delay and then said:

The President "acted like a dick." Watch the host's stunned reaction to the insult now:

Halperin, who co-authored the book "Game Change," has been suspended indefinitely by the network and said in a statement:

"I want to offer a heartfelt and profound apology to the president, to my MSNBC colleagues, and to the viewers. My remark was unacceptable, and I deeply regret it."

Should he have been punished?

A California Republican who e-mailed a racist "family photo" of President Barack Obama superimposed as a chimpanzee is now facing widespread criticism.

State Assembly member Marilyn Davenport, who later apologized, says she received and forwarded the Obama email because she "thought it was funny."

Not the word a lot of people are using to describe it.

Here's the image the GOP official emailed out to dozens of friends and fellow Republicans, featuring Obama as a baby chimpanzee with its parents ...

Bobby Titcomb, an old Hawaii schoolmate and longtime golfing buddy of President Barack Obama's, was arrested for solicitation of prostitution.

The bust took place in Honolulu, which is part of the United States.

Titcomb, who hosted the Obama family at his Waialua home over the holidays this winter, was one of four people arrested in a sting operation

Bobby Titcomb Mug Shot

BOOKED: Bobby Titcomb after he got popped.

The crime, which allegedly took place Monday, is a misdemeanor that typically carries a $500 fine, as well as probation and up to 30 days in jail.

Obama and Titcomb attended the private Punahou School in Honolulu together in the '70s and have been friends ever since. Well, until this.

Who knows how the Prez will react to his pal joining THG's celebrity mug shots gallery. He could do something nuts like shut down the federal government.

You can never tell nowadays.

Barack Obama likely won't be selecting Baltimore Orioles first baseman Luke Scott in his baseball fantasy draft next season.

The power-hitting lefty gave a lengthy interview to Yahoo today in which he touched on the topics of hunting, guns... and the integrity of President Obama.

"Obama does not represent America," Scott said. "Nor does he represent anything what our forefathers stood for. This country is built on an attitude. It's a way of life. It's not because you're born here. It's not that you're supposed to take from those who have and give to those who haven't. That kills a country. It killed Russia."

Even if it were about being born here, Scott believes Obama would not be representative of the country, saying:

"[Obama] was not born here. That's my belief. I was born here. If someone accuses me of not being born here, I can go to my filing cabinet and I can pick up my real birth certificate and I can go, 'See? Look! Here it is. Here it is.' The man has dodged everything."

(Editor's Note.)

As for Scott's slugging percentage in 2011? "Anything over .600 would be nice," he said.

Has President Barack Obama been having an affair with Vera Baker? That's the shocking allegation made by the National Enquirer in this week's edition.

The publication claims Obama and Baker, a former campaign aide, holed up at Washington, D.C. hotel, and a "security video" could expose everything!

Baker, now 35, worked tirelessly to get Obama elected to the U.S. Senate, raising millions in campaign contributions, in 2004. They grew close since.

While Vera Baker insists that "nothing happened" between them, the Enquirer says anti-Obama "operatives" are digging hard into the alleged affair.

Some are reportedly offering $1 million for information confirming it.

El Presidente

Did Barack Obama and Vera Baker have an affair? That's the allegation of sources who claim the former aide is now his mistress - and claim there's evidence out there.

According to the celebrity gossip tabloid, a limo driver (anonymous of course) claims he drove Vera to a secret hotel rendezvous with the President.

He says he drove Baker "from a friend's home in the D.C. area to the Hotel George where I learned later that Obama would be spending the night."

The driver recalled that he "waited in the lobby while she went to change her outfit. But to the best of my knowledge she did not have a room at the hotel and she was not staying there so I thought that it was a bit odd."

He says he picked up Barack Obama at the airport and drove both he and Vera Baker to various locations while he was raising money.
