    Activist inspired by actor's stand on Schiavo, says his charisma needed

    Inspired by Mel Gibson's strong stand against the dehydration death of Terri Schiavo, an Oregon businessman has begun a campaign to see the "Passion" director run for president as a Republican in 2008, saying he's the only potential candidate who has the star power and charisma needed to keep Democrat Hillary Clinton out of the White House.

    "Mel Gibson is perhaps one of the few men in America who has shown exceptional courage in facing up to the left and the 'culture of death,'" James Welsh told WorldNetDaily. "Americans of religious conviction have been under relentless assault for at least the last 10 to 15 years. While we have been successful in achieving some gains, our defeat in the Terri Schiavo battle has made manifest the need for new generalship in this culture war."

    In preparation for what he hopes will be a Gibson candidacy, Welsh has purchased 12 Internet domain names relating to a presidential run, including gibson2008.com...

    NEW YORK (AP) Days before the release of Mel Gibson's film about the death of Jesus, which some critics say could fuel anti-Semitism, his father has told an interviewer that the Holocaust was mostly "fiction." In the latest interview, Mel Gibson's father said Jews want to take over the world

    According to a transcript released by the network, Hutton Gibson said, "It's all maybe not all fiction but most of it is," when asked about his views on the Holocaust.

    He added: "They claimed that there were 6.2 million (Jews) in Poland before the war and after the war there were 200,000, therefore he (Hitler) must have killed 6 million of them. They simply got up and left. They were all over the Bronx and Brooklyn and Sydney and Los Angeles."

    The interview comes at a sensitive time for Mel Gibson, whose epic The Passion of the Christ is due to open Wednesday...

    You are right....He was born in NY and then moved to Australia:

    Mel Columcille Gerard Gibson was born on January 3, 1956, in Peekskill, New York, USA as the sixth of eleven children to parents Hutton Gibson, a railroad brakeman, and Ann Gibson, who was born in Australia and died in December of 1990. Though born in the US, Mel and his family moved to New South Wales, Australia.

    That bio needs to be updated as well as it states:

    Abstains from alcohol completely.
    and also interesting:

    His father, Hutton Gibson, moved the family from upstate New York to Sydney, New South Wales, Australia in 1968 after winning as a contestant on "Jeopardy!" (1964).

    Well, at least with Mel, after a few shots of tequila, you'd know where he stood on things. A little ugly honesty might be a nice change from the current mare's nest of politics. Where the only thing we know for sure is that someone at Halliburton is doing quite well.

    Perhaps now, but I don't remember any such "honesty" when his passion play was raking in millions.

    True. But maybe if someone had just handed him a bottle of booze and some car keys, we could have found out sooner. (Kind of tongue in cheek.)

    Actually, there was a lot of talk at the time that the movie was anti-Semitic. Apparently, his father had strong feelings along that line and has doubts that the Holocaust occurred.

    If Mel were president, the country would turn into a state of "Mad Max":

    Generally, there is a correlation between seeing the movie, and expressing an intention to see it, with holding the view that Jews were responsible for Christ's death.

    I listened to the Hutton Gibson interview on the Howard Stern show when the Passion was released. Truly vile.

    When asked, Mel Gibson refused to distance himself.
