Sean Penn Plays With Dolls

And not even Hummels:

Hollywood activist SEAN PENN has a plastic doll of conservative US columnist ANN COULTER that he likes to abuse when angry. The Oscar-winner actor has hated Coulter ever since she blacklisted his director father LEO PENN in her book TREASON. [Huh? I’m pretty sure Hollywood blacklisted Leo Penn, not Ann, unless she used a time machine to go back to the late 1940s–Ed] And he takes out his frustrations with Coulter, who is a best-selling author, lawyer and television pundit, on the Barble-like doll. In an interview with The New Yorker magazine, Penn reveals, “We violate her. There are cigarette burns in some funny places. She’s a pure snake-oil salesman. She doesn’t believe a word she says.”

Does anyone have Sigmund Freud’s 24-hour 800-number? Because he’d have an absolute field day with all of the symbolism involved here. (Of course, sometimes a Marlboro is merely a Marlboro…)
