Gibson Devolves To Nutter Status

I hate touching on the Holly-weird crowd. Why? Well it's dirt simple, folks. These people don't live in reality. They spend their days working in a fantasy world with lackeys at their beck and call. And while we like certain people in Hollywood, there are a few that are slowly working their way out of our repetoire of movie watching. Mel Gibson is one of them, sadly to say. His insane little rant with the anti-Semitic comments was blown well out of proportion by the media. And like other sensible bloggers out there, we didn't give him a pass on it. But we did state, for the record, that the man was drunk. How many of us have said utterly ridiculous and retarded things while under the influence?

I know I have. And I don't excuse myself for saying stupid things when I'm drunk. I have learned that when I do DRINK (which is not that often; a glass or two of wine at dinner doesn't denote the sort of drinking I'm referring to) I keep my mouth shut. Best to stew over the opinions of others than to potentially ruin friendships with complete stupidity.

But there's a story out from Reuters that shows Mr. Gibson has decided to vent about the Iraq war:

Mel Gibson has returned to the spotlight to promote his upcoming movie "Apocalypto," and to criticize the war in Iraq, according to the Hollywood Reporter.

Almost two months after he railed against Jews when he was arrested for driving drunk in Malibu, the actor made a surprise appearance Friday at Fantastic Fest, an event in Austin, Texas, devoted to new science fiction, horror and fantasy films, the trade paper said in its Monday edition.

He presented a work-in-progress screening of his Mayan adventure tale, and then took questions. About one-third of the full house gathered for the film gave him a standing ovation. The film is scheduled for a December 8 release via Disney.

In describing its portrait of a civilization in decline, Gibson said, "The precursors to a civilization that's going under are the same, time and time again," drawing parallels between the Mayan civilization on the brink of collapse and America's present situation. "What's human sacrifice," he asked, "if not sending guys off to Iraq for no reason?"

For no reason? That's it folks, Mel has officially lost it. He was a strong defender of President Bush, and this nation's efforts. I guess the avalanche of criticism finally got to him. And all the entertainment pundits said he'd fail after The Passion was released. Nope. No failure here; he just needed a little time of breathing the "nuanced" air of Hollywood. I wonder if Kos is tripping over himself to get Gibson a spot on his site?
