Sean Penn's Boat Sinks In Failed Katrina Rescue Attempt

New Orleans, Louisiana (AHN) - Political Activist and Actor Sean Penn made his way down to the city of New Orleans with a personal photographer and an entourage in an attempt to help victims stranded by floods caused by Hurricane Katrina.
Penn had planned to rescue children and adults in the flood waters, but apparently forgot to plug a hole in the bottom of the vessel, which began taking water within seconds of its launch.
Penn who is known for his political activism, was seen wearing what appeared to be a white flak jacket and frantically bailing water out of the sinking vessel with a red plastic cup that eventually was not enough for the Academy Award winner.
When asked what he had hoped to achieve in the waterlogged city, the actor tells the Herald Sun: "Whatever I can do to help."
The paper reports that one bystander taunted the actor saying, "How are you going to get any people in that thing?"

Its all well and good that he's going down there trying to help out but it looks a little self serving when you bring an entourage and a personal photographer to chronicle you trying to look like a hero. Instead of looking like a hero it makes you look like a self serving douche.
