Susan Sarandon: I 'Might' Leave US if Obama Loses

It's that time again, folks....when celebrity blowhards threaten to leave America if the election doesn't go the way they think it should. This time, Susan Sarandon is the doofus du jour, claiming that if Barack Obama doesn't win she may well be outta here (h/t: Hot Air):

If McCain gets in, its going to be very, very dangerous, she says.

Its a critical time, but I have faith in the American people. If they prove me wrong, Ill be checking out a move to Italy. Maybe Canada, I dont know. Were at an abyss.

I realize she's an actress who is highly in tune with her emotions and therefore more likely to be ruled by them, but come on already. We've heard plenty of this kind of talk back in 2004 and I can't think of any celebs who actually left because Bush was reelected. Not even the high-strung pottymouth Alec Baldwin or perpetually outraged (and brassier-challenged) Barbra Streisand.

Yes, Madonna and Gwynnie now have homes in England, but that's because they both married Brits...and yet I haven't heard of them actually renouncing their American citizenship. If you ask me, the Brits can have the two of them.

Unlike over-emotional Hollywood hooh hahs who make these sensational statements to get some press, I don't plan on going anywhere if Barack Obama does win. Where else would I really be better off? Canada or England, bastions of Socialism paid for by exorbitant taxes where increasing dhimmitude is the norm? Germany or France, where unemployment is nearly as high as the tax rates and radical Islam is gaining a stronger foothold every day? An impoverished nation like Mexico or Zimbabwe? Venezuela, which is withering under the stranglehold of Hugo Chavez?

Sure, if Obama wins I'll be unhappy and uneasy. But for now, nowhere is better than the United States, no matter who is at the helm. That may change down the road, but what realistic alternative do we have? (Besides, I don't have the cash reserves like Sarandon to just "pick up and go" whenever I please.)

By all means, Susan, take off to the Great White North, or wherever else may tickle your fancy. But while Sarandon may "have faith in the American people" I don't have faith that she'll keep her word if McCain emerges victorious in November - more's the pity.

So what's keeping you? Leave already!

We're at an "abyss"? Eh? That doesn't even make any sense.

On a related note: HAPPY BIRTHDAY, PAM!!!

Don't let the door hit you in the rear on your way out! You and your husband could also donate all of the money you have made making and selling movies in the US. As a proud US citizen I would never watch another movie that Susan or her husband were in again. Tell Susan not to wait for the election, leave now....who would really care?

Promises promises! They keep saying they are going - but still they remain here! What's up with that.

On a completely unrelated (but more important) note: Happy Birthday Pam! You don't look a day over 29!

Yes, HAPPY 3oth BIRTHDAY!!

SS is one of those people I wish would just STFU and act. She's good in some parts -- like THE CLIENT. I hated Thelma & Louise so much I saw it three times in the theater.

I will help pack her bags. These whiney celebs seem to take advantage of how well they have it and then don't care to realize why they have it so well.

Why doesn't she leave right now? That will save us the big surprise when she decides to stay in this great country of ours even if John McCain is elected president. Why you ask? Alec Baldwin said the same thing and then chickened out. I sure wish they would follow through with their promises.

MEMO TO SUSAN SARANDON:

I have not discarded the numerous boxes I used to move to Virginia from Ohio. I will be happy to provide them to you as my gift to you in gratitude for your departure from our shores in perpetuity. Heck - I'll even go the Moving Store and buy you a few extra!

Don't let the door slam behind you. No real loss.
