I think Will Ferrell is one of the most over-rated actor/comedians ever!  I'm not just saying that because of this quote of his - but I have never gone to a movie of his that didn't stink on ice.  I guess his kind of humor must appeal to someone - but I don't get it.  I do think he was trying to be funny here - to say something outrageous to get extra publicity for his new movie (which no doubt stinks too) - so I don't think he means what he said one little bit.  That's the way these celebrities do - the more over-the-top statements they can make, the more they can get media coverage. 

I think if they really did raise tax rates that high - he would flee to Canada or somewhere so fast - it would make your head spin!

My younger sister loves Will Ferrell's humor. It's one of those things you either love or you hate.

I have yet to see him make a movie that proved he could act.

When I need to calm down from having the 'giggles' I watch Will Ferrell.

Why is it everyone seems to think that actors are such economic and political gurus?  Will Ferrell has utterly no clue what he's talking about, period, end of discussion.  Unless he can show evidence of a whole lotta larnin' in economics and tax policy, giving him even a moment's attention on those topics is like asking a cockroach to explain Einstein's theory of general relativity.  In plain English.

1.  He's not much of an actor.
2.  He's not particularly funny as a comedian.
3.  So why won't he pay more? Oh yeah, he'll hide his wealth in his mattress.
