The New Republic's Jonathan Kiefer positively knifes Sean Penn in his review of The Assassination of Richard Nixon:
"One wonders what might have become of the real Sam Byck had he the means to take out a page in the Post instead of sending tape-recorded rants to one of its reporters, and to luminaries like Jonas Salk, Hank Aaron, and Leonard Bernstein. Conversely, one wonders what sort of trouble Penn--whose own antisocial tendencies have fortified his cult of personality--might have gotten into had talent, fame, and privilege not been bestowed on him."
Whoa. Is this part of Beinart's purge?
Oh come on. We kid because we love.
