George Clooney, sad to say, is about as dumb as a person can be!!!!
I would assume he knew Captain Otway Burns, of whom Burnsville, NC was named after.
The people mentioned in the article (Clooney, Kennedy et al) are fit to repeat ANY word Stephen Decatur said. I dislike them with a fiery passion. (I'm trying hard, really really hard, to not use the word 'hate')
To me that means that if and when she is wrong, we grieve, we try to amend what is wrong, but we never stop loving or caring for our country.
But I hope that nobody reads this and thinks I have an ounce of sympathy or agreement for the Swimmer or for Clooney. What a pair of scoundrels and dopes!
With Ted Kennedy and his ilk, it's more like "I hate our country, right or wrong!" Or, maybe, "Our enemies, right or wrong!"

Actually, with Teddy Fata$$, it's "Make it a double!" or "I'm sober enough to drive".
