My latest posts examines, academically, the lunatic rantings and ravings of one “Roseanne Barr.” I don’t know if that’s her real name or her alien-given name. Either way, here’s a sampling and a link to my latest NewsBusters post:
Celebrity advisors/surrogates–like George Clooney–are a point of pride for Democrats. They like the “cool” factor these celebrities bring to their campaigns. Though their fame brings increased attention and makes their candidates chic, celebrity also elevates people with no other identifiable skills. What, exactly, does Clooney bring to Obama’s team of 300 foreign policy advisors(?), for instance. Oh well, at least Republicans don’t have to deal with Roseanne Barr.
By the by, I was re-watching the second season of 30 Rock late last night and came across the episode in which Jack Donaghy is throwing a fundraiser for John McCain. The episode deals with Jack trying, unsuccessfully, to find a few Republican celebrities. Bruce Willis won’t show unless they let him sing.
Courtesy of wikiquote, regarding Kenneth the Page’s voting habits:
KENNETH: Oh no Sir, I don’t vote Republican or Democrat. Choosing is a sin, so I always just write in the Lord’s name.
JACK: That’s Republican. We count those.
