Mel Gibson has no passion for George W. Bush

Film star and director Mel Gibson has launched a scathing attack on US President George W Bush, comparing his leadership to the barbaric rulers of the Mayan civilisation in his new film Apocalypto.

The epic, due for release later this year, captures the decline of the Maya kingdom and the slaughter of thousands of inhabitants as human sacrifices in a bid to save the nation from collapsing.

Gibson reveals he used present day American politics as an inspiration, claiming the government callously plays on the nation's insecurities to maintain power.

He tells British film magazine Hotdog, "The fear-mongering we depict in the film reminds me of President Bush and his guys".

Thanks, D.

Ha! He is not the only one, 69% of the population feels the same way. Time for a gardner to trim that bush.

Yes, the conservative mantra on the Hollywood set. But Mr. Gibson was different - he was the darling of the right wing, with his "Passion" and "Patriot" movies. He was the toast of the conservative town. Now he spits on you turds, just like the rest of us do.

While he grew up in Australia - he is actually American born.
