Full Metal Jacket‘s sadistic drill sargeant and present-day GEICO pitchman R. Lee Ermey sounds like he needs to hit the couch and go to namby-pamby land after this “socialist Obama” blow up at a USO benefit, appearing on behalf of Toys for Tots. Via Mediate:

“The economy really sucks. Now I hate to point fingers at anybody, but the present administration probably had a lot to do with that. And the way I see it, they’re not going to quit doing it until they bring this country to its knees. So I think we should all rise up and we should stop this administration from what they’re doing because they’re destroying this country. They’re driving us into bankruptcy so that they can impose socialism on us and that’s exactly what they’re doing. And I’m sick and damn tired of it, and I know you are too. But I know that the Marine Corps will be here forever; this administration won’t. Semper Fi.”

And with that outburst, he takes his leave quietly back to his table, where the cohosts, clearly somewhat stunned, ask him how he “really feels.”
