Samuel L. Jackson putdown

UPDATE AT 11:03 P.M. ET: More brilliance from Hollywood, via NewsBusters: Samuel L. Jackson came on Tuesday's edition of "Live With Regis and Kelly" to promote his latest movie, Lakeview Terrace, but couldn't resist getting in a plug for Barack Obama. The Pulp Fiction star told Regis Philbin that when he was at the Deauville Film Festival in France, nobody really wanted to talk showbiz, instead the festival goers asked him about the upcoming election: "They're all hoping that we come into the world community by electing, you know, Barack they say. So we hope so."

COMMENT: Memo to Samuel L. Jackson: If the United States wasn't already in the "world community," those Frenchmen you spoke with in France would be speaking German.

I wish I had said that.
