Y'all Tell Me If This Is True

Meryl Streep and Denzel were on the today show
"live" with Katie Couric to talk about the
movie "Manchurian Candidate."
At one point Katie asked Denzel, "have you seen
Fahrenheit 9/11?" To which Denzel replied, "No, and I
have no intentions on seeing it." Katie and Meryl were

"so noticeably" taken aback! It was so cool!
Then, a discourse (or more preferably, a fight!)
began between all three of them with Denzel being
barraged with all kinds of anti-Bush, anti-republican
comments, but "the man stood his ground" and soon
enraged the women so much that they couldn't get a
word in edgewise. Meryl Streep turned blood red and
she sat with her legs crossed and her one leg shaking
up and down, fuming! Then Katie uttered the words that
put the final nail in her coffin, she said to Denzel
"you see, that's the problem I have with "you people."

She of course did not get to finish her sentence
because Denzel pounced on her verbally by responding
"YOU PEOPLE! YOU PEOPLE! Just what do you mean you
people! Do you mean "You People" as in me as a
Christian, or do you mean "You People" as in me as a
REPUBLICAN? She then tap danced her way through the
next minute of the show. But Denzel went out fighting
and declaring that Fahrenheit 9/11 is nothing but
propaganda and lies distorted to support a cynical
democratic film director's views.
There's a celebrity that deserves to wear the
uniform in movies and I don't mind at all.

H O O R A Y F O R D E N Z E L ! ! !

Katie's lucky that he did not interpret the "you
people" comment as a slur against black people.

Thanks, I suspected that there was quite a bit of fabrication in there.
