Seth Rogen: Self-Absorbed, Petulant, Unsophisticated Child

Seth Rogen proved actors should wade in the shallow waters of Hollywood, because his antics in Washington D.C. this week were embarrassing.
Rogen's stated purpose was certainly noble enough -- speaking in support of increased Alzheimer's funding. His tactics, however, were bush league.
Rogen was incensed only 2 Senators showed up to hear him speak. He railed on the sea of empty chairs, saying "All those empty seats are senators who are not prioritizing Alzeimer's."
Rogen -- who laced his speech with schtick, including his devotion to "House of Cards," perhaps should take a civic's lesson -- it's nothing personal, Seth, lots of subcommittees have empty chairs. It's not always about you.
Fact is ... if Senators are multi-tasking and have to choose which meetings to attend, Seth and his anecdotes, may not be at the top of the heap. Not that his anecdotes aren't moving -- they are, but personal tales aren't necessarily the best way to drive the government.
In harsher terms, Congress should not pass legislation so Senators can thump their chests to star-struck voters because some big celebrity told a tear-jerking story.
It's good Seth got in some selfies at the White House, and even acknowledged he's self-absorbed, but really, enough already.
