It’s bad enough that Roseanne Barr trashes up cable TV with her (*yawn*) Nuts show on Lifetime…for which she undoubtedly and unfortunately made a lot of money…only to turn around and call for the beheading of evil capitalists. Huh? And don’t get me started in Matt Damon…
But now we have noted liberal actress, Susan Sarandon, making a personal appearance in support of the Wall Street protestors.

“She told the crowd: 'I'm just here to be educated and offer my support. There’s a lot of different kinds of people here who want to shift the paradigm to something that’s addressing the huge gap between the rich and the poor.’”
OK, that’s to be expected from one of the world’s most famous Limousine Liberals.
But my jaw dropped while watching her protest. Isn’t this the same Susan Sarandon, caked in age-defying make up and perfectly coiffed, who has been hawking milk on the airwaves? As she marches from her cozy family room into her stainless steel, Viking appliance-appointed kitchen, she tells us that ‘the truth is delicious’.
Well, Ms. Sarandon, what is the truth? Is it how you appear in public or how you appear while selling a product? Normal people aren't confused by the blurred lines, but there is a segment of our society that can't distinguish fiction from reality.
I’ve listened to a few of the interviews with these protestors. They don’t know what they want. All they know is that wealth=bad, gimme, gimme, gimme, ‘cuz I/we deserve what YOU have earned.
The aimless young people and the AARP-eligible hippies in these marches are pathetic. It is irresponsible for Sarandon to be lending her image to this cause, and then turn completely around to present a false image to the rest of society for profit.
