I was down and feeling depressed about this whole Oakland Raider coach-firing thing, but watching this South Park video (below) and the Tom Cruise rant about Scientology made me feel better. There actually are people out there whackier than Al Davis. There are organizations that are more shadowy, secretive, and more mysterious….and whackier….than The Raiders. Unfortunately, we have to go into cult territory to find them, but they’re there.
By the way….say it ain’t so…Jason Lee, who plays Earl in “My Name is Earl” is a Scientologist. In case you’re keeping score, so is John Travolta, Kirstie Alley, Lisa Marie Presley, Isaac Hayes, poor Katie Holmes, Beck, Greta Van Susteren, Giovanni Ribisi, Catherine Bell, and rich Aussie business tycoon James Packer. If you recall, Isaac Hayes (“Chef”) left South Park because he was offended over their skewering of his cult religion.
