Tom Cruise is Batshit or Sometimes this blog just writes itself

Forget the couch jumping or being on the verge of bitch-slapping Matt Lauer or even the creepy abduction and androgynous makeover of Katie Holmes. Forget all that. Give this man the benefit of the doubt. Clear your mind of any preconceived notions that you may have of Tom Cruise and his selfless devotion to extracurricular activities involving the legacy of a certain dead science-fiction writer. Now that you've done that, watch this video and be reminded why you originally thought this man was totally f@ckin' cuckoo and really needs to be squirreled away in a padded bunker so he can prepare for his alien invasion.

One more point, before some Über-liberal star chaser or Tiger Beat subscriber smacks this author with a religious persecution rap. I want to illuminate that there needs to be a little more intellectual gravitas behind Scientology before I stop looking at it sideways. A "religion" that has academics like John Travolta, Jenna Elfman and Kirstie Alley behind it is not all that convincing. The day Stephen Hawking drops a copy of Dianetics on the way to his office at Oxford is the day I might stop crossing my eyes and twirling my index finger next to my temple when I talk about Scientology.
