DUmmie FUnnies 09-28-09 ("Actors you were bummed to find out were Republican...")
DUmmie FUnnies ^ | September 28, 2009 | DUmmies and PJ-Comix

Posted on 09/28/2009 4:50:20 PM PDT by PJ-Comix

I was actually planning on doing a DUFU about either the DUmmies or KOmmies biting their fingernails over the survival of public option in ObamaCare. Right now they are acting as if their very existence depends on public option remaining. However, I find the constant micro-analysis of each little nuance and twitch of the various Senators and Congress folks to be highly annoying. Like their self-absorbed neurosis was making me neurotic reading about it. Therefore I decided to go with the FUn THREAD, "Actors you were bummed to find out were Republican..." At least one of the actors mentioned actually surprised me since I would have never guessed him to be a Republican. So let us now watch the DUmmies get bummed out over Republican actors in Bolshevik Red while the commentary of your humble correspondent, reminding everybody that Lou Costello was a conservative Republican (really), is in the [brackets]:

Actors you were bummed to find out were Republican...

[John Wayne?]

Robert Downey, Jr.

Can't believe he went all Pro Bush...

[I have to admit this actually surprised me as well. Even more of a surprise than finding out that Richard Feynman was also a Republican.]

Tom Selleck. I thought he would be too smart for it.

[I figured Selleck for a conservative...which is why Rosie O'Donnell went nuts on him.]

Jimmy Stewart. From all his movies you got the idea that he was an empathetic humanist. He was a solid repub though.

[No surprise there. I already knew this about Jimmy.]

If he were alive today, I think he wouldn't still be a republcian.

[Somehow I can't picture Jimmy Stewart hanging out with the ACORN crowd.]

William Holden and Barbara Stanwyck... were two more old school republican, Eisenhower types

[William Holden was Best Man at Ronald Reagan's wedding. Barbara Stanwyck? She was the wife of Robert Taylor who testified in Congress about the Reds in Hollywood.]

Bruce Willis, Dennis Hopper

[And Willis had the sense to ditch that airhead Demi Moore.]

wow, would not have expected Dennis Hopper that is sad

[May we send you a consolation card?]

Patricia Heaton. I absolutely despise her since I found out she's a Republican. Especially after I read some of the comments she has made. Blech!!! That's the only one that bothers me. Don't have any negative feelings about the others I know of who are Republican.

[Send her to The Hague for political Thought Crimes.]

I can't watch her anymore. She is a good comedic actress. However, once I know something like that, it just destroys my image of them.

[Is Playboy Playmate Petra Verkaik a Republican? Somehow I don't think her politics would be my main concern if I ever happen to bump into her.]

Robert Duvall. he's a REAL asshole, too. smug, arrogant, uber macho prick. so that makes it easier to loathe him, unlike Downey, who I've always liked a lot can't believe he swings that way must've been all the drugs

[Was Gabby Hayes a Republican? That knowledge would greatly influence how I perceive Roy Rogers movies.]

What??? Robert Downey Jr.?? Is that true? I had not heard that. My wife will be crushed when she hears this -- he is one of her favorite actors.

[Your wife will have to retire her bong pipe.]

Clint Eastwood

[Kind of hard to think of Dirty Harry as a kneejerk liberal.]

Stallone. Who coulda guessed?

[Easy to guess that when you watch the Rocky Balboa movies.]

Gary Sinese

[No surprise there. And I've been a big fan of his since watching him in "True West." A great play.]

John Voight

[No surprise now but years ago I sort of had him pegged for a liberal.]

Jim Caviezel

[Jesus was a Republican. Remember that.]

Mary Tyler Moore told Parade last year how much she loves Bill O'Reilly and said she'd campaign for McCain/Palin if asked

[FUn Fact: Morey Amsterdam from the Dick Van Dycke show was a big supporter of Ronald Reagan.]

Adam Sandler shattered my illusions.

[Another Republican. I loved him as Dave Buzznik in "Anger Management." Was Dr. Buddy Rydell also a Republican?]

Phyllis Diller.

[Bob Hope must have rubbed off on her.]

Here is a list of them: MEATLOAF? And, Cindy Williams of Lavern & Shirley

[I never thought about it before but Meatloaf's political leanings surprises me as well.]

R. Lee Ermey is a Republican?!

[How could you possibly think that Sgt. Hartman would be a liberal Democrat?]

Micky Dolenz of the Monkees. He apparently appeared as a headline act at a teabag event in Texas. Bummer.

[Peter Tork?]

Drew Carey. Majorly bummed about that

[Then I better not tell you about Lou Costello.]

Still waiting for Windows 7 to come out next month before buying a replacement computer. If you don't play video games, the computers are fairly cheap nowadays. Walmart has a Dell Inspiron with 19" wide screen for just $300. I was a little pissed when my 'puter was starting to bug out on me but I am overdue for one. I vowed to get a new computer every 3 years but this one is almost 4 years which is old in computer years.

These people really see the world upside down. They think Robert Duvall is arrogant, yet they probably think Sean Penn and Tim Robbins are humble and thoughtful.

Who said the DUmmies are objective?

I've always thought Robert Downey Jr. is an awesome actor. Now, since he has cleaned his act up and turned over a new leaf does every one get to see it.

Meatloaf always was a wild and an untamed thing.

Of course, that makes him a match with Sarah Palin.

I wonder if they realize that a lot of us often ponder how the heck anyone could call what the trash talk that the Marxist in Hollywood spew as liberal. There is nothing liberating about worshiping dear leader. There is nothing liberating about a government that is so large that it causes you fear. There is nothing liberating about having so little faith in yourself that you think big brother should take care of you. Face it there is nothing liberating about what the media calls liberal thought. It’s all just fascism.

“John Voight”

I think it's "Jon" Voight, but, other than that, I listened to him on the commentary to the "National Treasure II" DVD, and laughed out loud when he recommended Newt Gingrich's book during the commentary. The other commentator (director?) was so befuddled he didn't know what to say. Hehehe.

It’s a Seinfeld episode: George buys a car because it was owned by a John Voight [who turns out to be a dentist.] The [correct] spelling of Jon is part of the gag.

I don’t know if he gets into politics at all, but Gene Simmons strikes me as a surprisingly conservative guy. Very pro-America, pro-military and pro-personal responsibility. Probably a James Woods libertarian.

Jimmy Stewart flew a B17 in WWII, I forget how many missions but it was a bunch. What made these idiots think he was a communist(which is what all the DUmmies are)?

Arlo Guthrie, who's father was pretty much a Communist, has been a registered Republican for a few years.

It's not that he's a conservative -- he's somewhere between a Ron Paulista and a liberal Republican -- but still, it's something.

I bought one about 4 months ago(without the monitor)and it functions perfectly. It comes with a disk(seperate from the recovery disk)with all the drivers on it, plus if you opt for Vista the disk has the XP drivers on it also. Soon though 7 will be out as you say. I think I will stick with my XP.

Bo Derek is also a pubbie. I know she was at President Reagans funeral. I’m pretty sure I read that Jessica Simpson is also conservative. It sure bolsters the the notion that conservative women are hot and lib women, well....Rosie O’Donnel, Helen Thomas, Whoopie...you get the gist.

Drew Carey is a pretty solid independent I think. I heard him say he doesn’t like either party. I think that was around the 2004 election maybe, I’m thinking he leans pro-Constitution and dislikes politicians.
