the New York Post is now chiming in with reportage on the video footage of Tom Cruise rabbiting on about how maddeningly important Scientology is that has been doing the rounds for days in the blogosphere. The doco style footage that shows him just talking about how Scientologists are the most equipped people to do anything is one thing but the freakish footage of him accepting an award at the Scientologist Awards ceremony is another.

It looks like a parody of itself; there’s the crest behind it, the oil painting of L. Ron Hubbard to the side, they call him LRH and they salute him. It’s like something out of the Simpsons.

My whole thing here is: for like 10 years Tom Cruise would never talk about Scientology because he had Pat Kingsley as his publicist and Kingsley was out there breaking legs to keep the press about him nice. Then when he fired Kingsley it all came out because his dumb assed sister was his publicist and she didn’t know how to do her job properly.

Its weird to me that for ten years he would keep it under wraps in interviews because of his publicist despite the fact that “"A Scientologist is someone who can look at the world and really see what it is . . . and be effective and do something about it and someone who's not asking permission to do that. Why ask permission? We are the authorities!"

We ARE the authorities until our publicists tell us not to talk about it. Then when we stop talking to our publicists we let it all out. Maybe no one can control him in the same way Britney Spears can’t be controlled.

Eventually, Tom Cruise is going to explode and something will go horribly wrong. Like, his eye will explode or he’ll have a stroke or he’ll beat a 22 year old hustler to death in a cheap hotel room while chewing his tongue and sweating profusely. [source]
