Pacino award part of debt plan?
I knew it was you Fredo. You broke my heart. You broke my heart!"
Al Pacino got a hug and a medal from President Obama on Monday.
The actor was honored at the White House, where the president presented him with a National Medal of Arts for his contributions to American culture.
“Recognized around the world for his signature intensity on the silver screen, Mr. Pacino stands among America’s most accomplished artists,” an announcer said as Obama, smiling broadly, gave "The Godfather" star his prize.
The Pope - the Holy Father himself - has this very day blessed Michael Corleone; and you think you know better than the Pope?
What wasn't announced: Pacino later met with Timothy Geithner to discuss plans to bail us out of the national debt.
Unfortunately the event was marred by a breach in White House security. Rather than letting the Secret Service handle it, Pacino took matters into his own hands:
Congrats to one of America's greatest actors and it's a damn shame they didn't do this before Rahm Emanuel left.
