What follows is a tribute to our favorite big heads.
Javier Bardem is a wonderful actor. TMT loved him in No Country and Before Night Falls. He controversially said that if he were gay, he would "get married right now, just to piss off the church." We dig his cojones and his enormous head.
Tim Russert is one of my favorite correspondents, and Meet the Press, the least horrible of all my Sunday morning political shows. I like that the name of his book was "Big Russ and Me," and that he went to Woodstock dressed in a Bills Jersey, carrying a case of beer. However, Tim should avoid sitting next to Brian Williams at a debate; next to William's smallish noggin, Russert's potato head looks colossal.
I like Ted Kennedy. I like his liberal principles and his large head. Still, he did swim away from the scene of an accident that left a woman, the passenger of his car that went of a bridge, dead. Much to my surprise, that doesn't seem to bother anybody these days. It's easy to be distracted by his dream box.
