Chris Whittle, who edits Sunday Morning Shootout ... has a fascinating, wide ranging post on his site Eject! Eject! Eject!, which hits many of my political-entertainment industry buttons. The amn knows whereof he speaks, and has a lot of worthwhile thoughts.
>>There are only eight conservative actors in the history of Hollywood, and five of them have been elected to high office. (The sixth was elected president of the National Rifle Association, the seventh was elected Mayor of Carmel, California on a pro-business platform, and John Wayne had the class to never run for or from anything.) If, as my precisely scientific calculations show, liberal actors outnumber conservative ones by a ratio of 37,454.7 to 1, then where, indeed, are the elected liberal actors? Michaels plea does make a species of sense for a change. Why are there no liberal actors elected to high public office?
I have a theory as to why the liberals have no Arnold. Our Arnold you know, the Arnold is pro-business, pro-self-reliance and unabashedly, gloriously patriotic. This is a man who fessed up on national television to being smitten with Richard Nixon because he sounded anti-Communist. Arnold has seen real communists, as opposed to say, leading liberal Presidential wish fetish Warren Beatty, who has played one on the Silver Screen. Somehow, we poor, dim Americans remember, Michael Moore loves to tell overseas audiences that the stupidest Canadian / Briton / German / Frenchman / Burkino Fasoan is smarter than the brightest American we poor, simple-minded, drooling morons somehow think that Arnolds vision of an America opposed to real Communists is somehow a more compelling story than that of millionaire pampered playboy Warren Beattys misty-eyed view of them as a nation of daring, romantically doomed poet-philosophers in Reds.<<

The link from the link doesn't work. What did Tom Selleck get elected to?
That's not true. In the Fifties there was a "hollywood Delegation" that went to Washington to testify against Commies and the "rising tide of left-wing thinking" permeating thier industry. It was spearheaded and led by Humphry Bogart and His wife, Lauren Bacall.
