Sean Penn Accepts ‘First Amendment Award’
Hits Media, Calls for Impeachment
Published: December 19, 2006 11:00 AM ET updated 2:45 PM

Penn said he admired New York Times columnist Frank Rich but disagreed with his position that pursuing impeachment now would be “decadent.”

My gag reflex doesn’t allow for consumption of Frank Rich, but the use of the word decadent is really interesting. Think of the connotations: luxury, splendor, raw pleasure… How mentally ill does one have to be to equate a political process with such sensations? How invested in pursuit of control over others’ lives must one be to publicly describe powerlust this way?
