Hollywood Self Immolation Watch

First it was Kramer, now perhaps it's Louie De Palma's turn (via The Guardian):
(Danny DeVito) walked shakily onto the set of the daytime chat show The View yesterday, visibly under the influence despite the fact that it was only 11am. He put it down to an all-night bender with George Clooney, fuelled by copious amounts of an Italian lemon liqueur. "I knew it was the last seven limoncellos that was going to get me," he said.

Then he launched into a rant about George Bush, complaining he hadn't been invited to stay at the White House since he had taken the presidency. ABC bleeped out DeVito's description of Mr Bush, but the New York Post lip-read it as: "numb nuts".

The film star, who was publicising his new movie, Deck the Halls, went on to portray the president as a monkey, a dribbling oaf and as one of the Three Stooges, and baited him over the Democrats' recent electoral victory. "What about that hat trick last week! [The resignation of] Rumsfeld, the House and the Senate - ta-da! I took my clothes off."

DeVito rounded off his louche display with an account of his sexual antics while staying in the Lincoln bedroom in Bill Clinton's day. "We went in and we made it our business to really wreck the joint," he said, referring to his actress wife, Rhea Perlman. "I mean, every place in that bedroom was, er, utilised."

Now that's how you promote your new family-friendly holiday film!

The mere thought of Danny DeVito and Rhea Perlman in the White House....ugh. I want to jab forks into my eyes and wash it all down with bleach.

Although his galling behavior does at least remind me of that funny SNL skit where he and Charleton Heston (as played by Phil Hartman) are doing the recording session for the books-on-tape version of the Madonna "SEX" book. Heston reads the text in the most clinically, detached manner while DeVito describes the photos in full, glorious detail. Hysterically funny.

O man - that would be a great YouTube video. Unfortunately, no luck.
