APPEARANCES and MEDIA
February 8, 2009
IT'S no surprise the subjects of Andrea Peyser's new tome, "Celebutards" - Tom Cruise, Madonna, Sean Penn and Rosie O'Donnell among them - skipped the award-winning Post columnist's media-packed book party at the Park Avenue home of publisher Merle Hoffman. But Peyser graciously acknowledged them anyway for being "lazy and egotistical phonies who have too much money, fame and leisure time to spout off on topics they know nothing about." She noted, "If these people just acted and performed - just shut up and did their jobs like they're supposed to - there wouldn't be a book and I wouldn't have anything to do!"

Celebrities and politics: Too much, already?
The Factor was joined by columnist Andrea Peyser, whose new book castigates left wing celebrities who embrace every radical cause. Peyser pointed to Sean Penn, who has befriended various thugs and dictators. "When Sean Penn breaks bread with Hugo Chavez," Peyser questioned, "and when he goes places where people are shouting 'destroy Israel,' what kind of a message is he sending to those people? I used to wonder if Sean Penn could be tried as a traitor, he is breaking bread with people who hate the United States." Peyser also singled out two women for condemnation. "Rosie O'Donnell is a classic 9/11 denier who got on her soapbox and said 7 World Trade Center was taken down by the United States government. And Sharon Stone is crazy as a loon, she went to talk to the Arab media because she said the United States media distorts things." The Factor questioned why some entertainers feel a need to join the political fray. "I don't understand why Bruce Springsteen would want to inject himself in the political debate. That would be like me going on stage and singing."
