Houston's Al Green & Some Dude Named George Clooney Arrested In Sudan Protest

Where's Al?
U.S. Rep Al Green of Houston got arrested today for protesting outside the Sudanese Embassy in D.C., but few people took note.

That's because among the other people arrested were George Clooney, who you might have heard of.

The orchestrated arrests were part of Clooney's campaign to raise interest in Sudan and the violent ugliness going on in that African nation.

Clooney (and Green, and three other Congressmen) were put in plastic handcuffs and rode the Black Maria to the jail. They had been warned three times to leave the embassy grounds.

As far as we can tell, media reports of the arrests aren't really giving Green equal time with Clooney for some reason, but at least the Congressman will have a story to tell about his cellmate.

Funny how these Hollywood clowns never protest Israeli war criminals who are responsible for multiple massacres over the decades in Lebanon, the West Bank and Gaza from entering the US like Great Britain and other countries have.

 I AM SO TIRED OF ALL THESE CELEBRITIES WHO CHAMPION CAUSES, OR CHAMPION THE CAUSE THAT I DON'T LIKE, OR DON'T CHAMPION THE CAUSE THAT I LIKE

As far as I can tell, a sizable percentage of the conservative commenter community feels pretty good about sitting on their butts in front of the computer recommending that activists switch causes.

If maasanova has found such a great cause, I can only assume he's out there doing for HIS cause the same stuff Clooney and Green are doing for theirs...
