San Diego?

I'm ever so pleased that former futbol star Diego Maradona has scored on the President:
The keynote was struck by football star Diego Maradona, who wore a "Stop Bush" T-shirt to attend an anti-Bush "counter-summit" that drew some 4,000 protesters from around the world and easily eclipsed the official summit in the public's attention. "I'm proud as an Argentine to repudiate the presence of this human trash, George Bush," said Maradona.

Maradona's anti-Bush sentiment was replicated across a nation driven to a near standstill by tens of thousands of protesters chanting "terrorist Bush", while hospital and subway workers went on strike in Buenos Aires.
The world needs more progressive celebrities who aren't afraid to point fingers (and perhaps crush sleeping pills and slip them into the ruling order's beverages).
