Clooney Gives Up Oscar Swag, Protests Blog

Images_5George Clooney swears he will never run for political office because he has too much bad behavior behind him, but man this guy does not miss a trick. Saying that winning the Oscar was enough, Clooney's donating his Oscar gift bag to the United Way (he is a board member). After witnessing all the swag-guzzling stars at Sundance, Clooney's values are refreshing indeed. BTW, early buzz on Steven Soderbergh's post-World War II thriller The Good German, starring Clooney as yet another journalist, is that it's on the cool dark arty side more than outright commercial. Fine by me.
CLOONEYGATE ADD: Then there's the Arianna Huffington Clooney blog imbroglio. The whole point of a blog is for the actual person to express themselves directly in an unmediated way. Huffington of all people should know that.
