Erica Jong Bravely Declares, Bush is a Dictator, We Live in a Theocracy & Charlie Sheen is a True Patriot
When "Showbiz 2-Nite's" investigative entertainment reporter, A.J. Hammer asked "Erica Jong to comment on the theory that 9/11 was an inside job, she replied, "I think it`s very patriotic to investigate it. Throughout all of history the basic premise of tyrants has been -- dictators, shall we say. And I think it`s fair to say that George W. Bush is a dictator. Has been if you tell the people they have an external enemy, they`ll follow you anywhere." Imparting her extensive knowledge of the history of the Third Reich she noted, "That was what Goebbels told Hitler to do." But it's easy to make the comparison between Bush and Hitler, given Bush's establishment of work camps for people who openly disagree with his policies and Bush's $4.3 billion in aid to Africa, (Hitler was big on foreign aid - particularly to non-white continents/countries). Jong went on to criticize Bush's declaration to jail those who refuse to attend church and follow his call to prayer every morning from his bully pulpit/White House balcony. Risking death she said, "I think that he is a dictator. Most of the people do not believe that this country should be a theocracy." She criticized his staunch opposition to school vouchers and social security reform, "Most of the people in this country are pro choice. And yet, he blithely goes on ignoring the will of the people. I call that a dictator."
On the fun side of the interview was her sexy admission that she did - in fact - screw Martha Stewart's then husband, Andy, "I did something really stupid at the Frankfurt book fair but hey, it was a quarter century ago. I was only 55 years old. Ahhhh. The indescretions of youth." ...and the many gallons of liquor that Mr. Stewart had to injest to get those beer goggles on!
