Diane Sawyer Lets Him Cruise

Last night Diane Sawyer interviewed Tom Cruise and gave him a free pass. The Tampa Bay Devil Rays and Larry King together would have had a difficult time tossing softballs like Diane lobbed in to Tom. Examples of questions Diane didn't ask included:
  • Why do you think there are so many rumors that you are homosexul?
  • What do you say to people who think your relationship with Katie Holmes is a sham?
  • Is Scientology a cult?
  • Are you proud of your work in "Cocktail"?

Instead Diane dived into Tom's relationship with his father, allowed him to evade any questions regarding the validity of Scientology, and gave creedence to his relationship with Katie Holmes.

The second most inane moment in the interview was when Diane asked about Tom's claim that as he rose in the ranks of scientology, he had acquired mastery over disease. He responded that he used to have "sinus infections" all the time, but since he had risen in the religious ranks he doesn't have them anymore. Diane should have followed up with this question, but of course didn't:

"If that's true, then why did L. Ron Hubbard die?"

Or could it be that Cruise was talking in code and "sinus infections" really meant anal sex?

Of all the inane questions Diane asked, the best was: "What do you want to say to your baby when he/she is born."

Cruise is already a father, of two adopted children. I'm not sure how old they were when he and Nicole Kidman got them, but he should know that it isn't what you say to your baby that matters. The little buggers can't do anything for themselves, including comprehending the speach you publicist crafted detailing your love for them. What you say to them is irrelevant. It's what you do for them. They have diaper rashes you need to rub cream on. They get hungry and need to be fed. Afterwards they need to be burped. You need to check on them when they are sleeping to make sure they didn't spit up all over themselves.

All of these needs can be outsourced to an au pair, a nanny or even a wife. I'd be willing to bet that freaky Tom Cruise will use any option other than doing the work himself.

Tom Cruise is the white man's Michael Jackson.

'Speach' should be spelt 'S-P-E-E-C-H'
