Why I heart Sean Penn

After accepting the Best Actor Oscar last night for his role in Milk, Sean Penn had this to say...

"Finally, for those who saw the signs of hatred as our cars drove in tonight, I think it's a good time for those who voted for the ban on gay marriage to sit and reflect and anticipate their great shame in their grandchildrens' eyes if they continue that way of support.

We've got to have equal rights for everyone.

I'm very, very proud to live in a country that would elect an elegant man President and a country, for all its toughness, creates courageous artists."

Well said, Sean. Thank you for being an ally.
