Not Fonda

I'm not fond of Jane Fonda.

I agree with her opposition to the war, but she is a lightning rod toward her Vietnam incident when she sat on a Viet-cong gunner in opposition to the war. It was stupid and she should be cast into the shadows of any Iraq War protest.

Sadly, she was front and center in Saturday's protest in Washington. In the Star Tribune story, she was mentioned in the second paragraph and quoted in the third. Whenever Fonda is present, it gives Republicans a reason to illegitimize the protest or the anti-war stance.

Other Hollywood actors were there -- Sean Penn, Tim Robbins, Susan Sarandon. Please quote them. Or, stick to the issue! 21,000 more troops in Iraq, buried the 14th graph.
