Tim Robbins and Susan Sarandon are no fans of Henry Kissinger.
Arnold Schwarzenegger and Bruce Willis may still be in his battalion, but Hollywood's loyal opposition continues to pound President Bush.
Susan Sarandon and Tim Robbins are scoffing at Bush's appointment of Henry Kissinger to head a commission probing intelligence and security failures that led to Sept. 11.
"It's like something that 'Mad TV' thought up," Sarandon told us Monday night at a benefit for New York's 21-year-old Vineyard Theater. Asked who she might nominate to join the former secretary of state on the panel, the actress suggested, "How about [ex-Serbian strongman] Slobodan Milosevic? Let's put all the war criminals on it."
Robbins said that appointing Kissinger "made a lot of sense" if Bush doesn't want the public to know of errors in judgment.
"The fix has been in for years," he told us.
Meanwhile, Colombia's second-most-popular export, Shakira, is trying her hand at political commentary in her show.
During her protest song "Octavo Dia," a video screen shows puppets of Bush and Iraq dictator Saddam Hussein playing a violent game of chess. The camera then reveals the Grim Reaper pulling their strings.
Then there's Barbra Streisand, who has used her Web site to launch a new attack on the White House.
"We are all rooting for President Bush in America's efforts to win the War on Terrorism," the Democratic diva writes, then proceeds to list six instances where she alleges Republicans have ignored warnings of terror plots or fought increased intelligence spending. "Republican leaders have not proved themselves to be the effective protectors of Homeland Security, as they would have the American people believe," she writes.
Streisand also accuses Bush of "gutting" environmental protections "in favor of corporations and profit."
Not surprisingly, the White House had no comment on any of this unsolicited advice.
