Sean Penn writes to Matt Stone and Trey Parker
Sure it may be old as shit, and I know it's from Sludge Report, but given the fiasco here surrounding the Al Gore episode, I feel it's appropriate that it be reposted:

October 6, 2004

To Trey Parker and Matt Stone,

I remember a cordial hello when you guys were beginning to be famous guys around Hollywood at some party. I remember several times getting a few giggles out of your humor. I remember not being bothered as you traded on my name among others to appear witty, above it all, and likeable to your crowd. I never mind being of service, in satire and silliness.

I do mind when anybody who doesn't have a child, doesn't have a child at war, or isn't or won't be in harm's way themselves, is encouraging that there's "no shame in not voting" "if you don't know what you're talking about" (Mr. Stone) without mentioning the shame of not knowing what your talking about, and encouraging people to know. You guys are talented young guys but alas, primarily young guys. It's all well to joke about me or whomever you choose. Not so well, to encourage irresponsibility that will ultimately lead to the disembowelment, mutilation, exploitation, and death of innocent people throughout the world. The vote matters to them. No one's ignorance, indcluding a couple of hip cross-dressers, is an excuse.

All best, and a sincere fuck you,

Sean Penn

P.S. Take this as a personal invitation from me to you (you can ask Dennis Miller along for the ride as well) to escort you on a trip, which I took last Christmas. We'll fly to Amman, Jordan and I'll ride with you in a (?) 12 hours through the Sunni Triangle into Fallujah and Baghdad and I'll show you around. When we return, make all the fun you want.

2. Good for Mr. Penn.
I've never been a big South Park fan (though when the show's good, it's good), but Parker and Stone have always come across as assholes to me (I lost a ton of respect for them after their "We hate conservatives, but we really f*ckin' hate liberals" comment.)
I think Penn gets better with age, both acting-wise and politically ("The Interpreter" was good, and "I Am Sam", which I just saw recently, was very touching.)
