I normally dont think about (or care) about a particular person's politics if they are on a show I am watching...
I read this somewhere. I believe they made this list simply based on one or two commentaries on certain issue that the "celebrity" made. Based on this kind of standard, they should put Bill Cosby too.
Yaphet Kotto, "G", the Lt. from "Homicide Life on the Street", campaigned for Steve Forbes in 2000.
He's from Ireland. When did he (if he even did) become a US citizen?
I don't know what party he is registered with, but he is pretty conservative. I heard him on the Sean Hannity show, he called in to defend Bush and his approach to the WOT. Woods also stated that he has a degree in Political Science, from MIT (!), and therefore (I paraphrase): unlike some other hollywood celebs he actually knows what he's talking about.
It was a great radio moment.
Rob Lowe must have changed at some point. In 1988, he stumped for Dukakis - and was caught in that sex/video scandal while at the Dem convention.
Also, Gene Simmons, while huge on the WOT, has said on more than one occasion that his personal/social beliefs were far more in line with the Dems than with the Reps.
Unfortunately, not anymore.
Stallone and David Spade are NOT Republicans.
Dean Cain (according to newsmeat.com) has given money to both parties.
The whole thing is a three ring circus.
He's undoubtedly a brilliant man-especially for someone who makes a living in Hollywood-who would make a fine Republican, especially as a candidate for public office in the future.
-good times, G.J.P. (Jr.)
There goes the list's credibility.
She was always sexy in kind of an odd way.
I have to say that's one of her better pictures...yum...
Half the list is "Anybody who's good in a fight" The other half are country singers and the children of Democrats
It's good to see Herschel Walker on the list. Last week, my wife, who is a photographer at the Naval Amphibious Base Little Creek Public Affairs Office, got to take pictures of him while he was there to promote a food product line he sponsors which will be served at the galley.
A Baldwin brother who's a Republican? Are you sure about that?
I do believe Gene Simmons is a libertarian and an atheist. He didn't like Clinton or Gore but that doesn't make him a conservative.
There's some other names on this list that I find questionable at the very least.
Where did you get Rob Lowe's name from? IIRC he was making pornographic home movies with an under age girl at the DNC convention in 1992.
The list is BS but there are plenty of real GOPers that are NOT on that list.
Gene Simmons is a patriotic, pro-defense liberal. Says so himself. He did vote for W this last election.
The youngest one. Heard him speak several times. Very devout Christian.
Vince Vaughn - Yum!
The one odd thing about him is he has really small hands for the size of his stature.
Not sure why I needed to say that. LOL
H'm. You don't suppose Alec disowned him, do you? : )
Add country legend George Strait. He vacationed with GHWB at Camp David during his term.
Bret Michaels singer of Poison. You know: "Every Rose Has Its Thorns"
I saw him in Rice Lake, Wisconsin this year and he said some things that liberals would never say such as
that he was so happy to be an American because only in America could he perform music for a living like he does. He said nice things about the troops too and not in the sort of way that liberals do sometimes. I'd bet 20 bucks he votes Republican.
Ok, I SAW Gene Simmons on Fox and Friends and he IS a registered Republican; he voted for GWB both times, and voted for Obama in 2008. He is fiscally conservative, socially progressive. Patricia Heaton is also a Republican. Some on this list I kind of doubt, like Matthew McConaughey and David Spade, although I was pleasantly surprised to find out that Adam Sandler is a Republican, as is Robert Downey Jr. Also James Caan. Victoria Jackson and Jon Voight as well. I think there are probably more closeted Conservatives in Hollywood than we know about. I do question those that I know are from other countries (Canadians and British/Irish), but who knows, they come from socialist socieities, so maybe they have seen the light???
I think this list needs updating. Anderson Cooper!?
He is also a Christian.
Alex Trebek calls himself an “Independent”.
Didn’t Charles Barkley switch to “the democracy” several years ago and threatened to run for governor of Alabama?
You can add Connie Stevens to the GOP list.
