I think Hollywood is starting to learn that it’s cheaper to support the Republican guy.

You'd have to be somebody who takes the supermarket tabloids seriously to let a celebrity sway your opinion, regardless of the candidate or political party.

The celebrity worship in this country is ridiculous. If you are dumb enough to let celebrities help make up your mind, you deserve every bit of the big government we've been getting for the past few decades.

Ever hear of the movie Brokeback Mountain??? Hahaha.

He had a starring role in that classic, but he’s actually a pretty good actor in my opinion.

What makes this interesting is he is still young and really truly in the game in Hollywood, not on the fringe or in the twilight of a career. Pretty big risk.

I’m sure many more feel the same way but are afraid to put it out there for fear of their careers.

But I understand your point.

The sad joke is if we had the economy today that Bush I lost with, the MSM would call it “spectacular”

Yes, the celebrity worship in the US is ridiculous, but we have a special case with this election. These celebrity endorsements lower the normative barrier to voting against Obama that might still exist for some independents.

I don't know. Guys got 10,000 followers. Since I DO NOT tweet and have NEVER been on twitter, I am not sure how to spot a good account from a fake account, but looks legitimate.

Regardless, dude makes good points about O’Bumbler!

I am not aware of his sexual habits, but I heard Brokeback Mountain was a good movie. Just about a subject that I am not interested in.

That being said. He is a very good actor, regardless of his political beliefs. I feel the same way about Alec Baldwin, he is a very good actor, even if he is a real political idiot.

“Hugh Jackman is Australian. Don’t think he can vote here. :)”
I think he was referring to Hugh Gyllenhall, Jake’s grandfather.

Gyllenhall is Swedish. Jake is Jewish through his mother.

True, but every election cycle we need to win the votes of stupid voters. It's better to do that by getting flashy spokespeople than by saying we support stupid liberal policies which sound good to stupid people.

That’s the whole thing, the Hoolyweird types like Lyndsey Lohan and this twitter-twit have hugh followings of uninformed, disinterested morons that voted for Obozamma last time.

They will follow and vote Romney this time!! The “celebs” have given their permission to dump Obozo!!

Stupid and uninformed voters are a big part of the reason why the the GOP establishment moderates are able to foist RINO candidates off on us and why the last couple of Republican Presidents have been big government nanny-staters.

You don't get a New England liberal who believes in false prophets and who inspired Obamacare as the GOP candidate unless you fool a lot of stupid people.
