Daylight Come and I Wanna Go Nuts

Okay, other than one really, really annoying song, why is this guy famous?

NEW YORK - Entertainer Harry Belafonte, one of the Bush administration’s harshest critics, compared the Homeland Security Department to the Nazi Gestapo on Saturday and attacked the president as a liar.

“We’ve come to this dark time in which the new Gestapo of Homeland Security lurks here, where citizens are having their rights suspended,” Belafonte said in a speech to the annual meeting of the Arts Presenters Members Conference.

Tiresome. You'd think a guy who's considered such an artist would be able to come up with something better than Bush-Hitler comparisons.
