There's Jerry Doyle... sure, he's a talk show host... but he used to be in Babylon 5. Don't ask me what role. I don't have a clue.

Steven Tyler, I'm shocked!

And Stephen Baldwin, he's probably been banished from the family... Maybe that's good... That's a tough row to hoe...

There are a few others in Hollywood that are GOP but are afraid to come out.

They try to walk a tightrope and call themselves Libertarians, like Kurt Russell.. But I definently think he's a Bush vote in 04.

John Rhys-Davies, who played Gimli the dwarf in The Lord of the Rings trilogy, said recently, "You introduce a Republican to another in Hollywood, it's like a meeting between two Christians in Caligula's Rome."

Ooooooo! Blind Boys are the greatest! We just bought 3 more of their CDs!

We even tried to get to see them when they were appearing in our neck of the woods, but we couldn't quite work it out.

Not to be catty or anything (OK, meow) why the heck is Alec Baldwin still around? I thought we bought him a ticket to France....

Skynyrd's come a long way, if memory serves, (that's questionable about the 70's) I seem to remember that they supported Carter.

But Lynyrd Skynyrd, Kid Rock, Britney Spears, Ted Nugent, and Steve Tyler of Aerosmith are fans of the President. So is punk-rock guitarist Johnny Ramone of the Ramones, who urges musician pals to donate to Bush's campaign. "I try to make a dent in people when I can," he said in a March interview with the Washington Times. "I figure people drift toward liberalism at a young age, and I always hope that they change when they see how the world really is."

Two other entertainers, both favorites of mine (and both publicly, aggressively pro-Bush): Rock gawd GENE SIMMONS --

"We need to do this not only in Iraq, but in Somalia, in Sudan, anywhere there’s Al-Queda. Anybody who believes that we should just stay in America is wrong. The roaches multiply in the kitchen. This idea that if you stay in the bedroom, everything will be okay doesn’t work, because roaches multiply. You have to get an exterminator. Exterminators are not fun guys to be around, because what they are there to do is to get rid of the roaches. So they are not popular guys. When I look at George Bush, he’s not well loved. People around the world don’t like this guy, but he’s got to stay, because he’s an exterminator. That’s what he does."

... and Mystery Science Theatre 3000 good guy MICHAEL J. NELSON.

"I read the National Review cover to cover.  Check in at Townhall.com every day.  Check the Washington Times daily.  Listen to Dennis Prager and Michael Medved on a regular basis.  Read Mark Steyn with regularity.  Read the Weekly Standard.  So, yes, I do vote Republican.  As the pundit Hugh Hewitt has observed, there are indeed two Americas: Serious America and Silly America.  The Democrats seem bent on turning this into Silly America, so I stick with those who wish this to remain Serious America."

Simmons has always struck me as a Romeo / pig

I caught him on Ryan Seacrest recently (my kids watch it) and in between piggishly alluding to sexual acts / he is first and foremost a friend of Israel - and I beleive maybe even a Jew - hence his pro Bush stance.

Gene Simmons' birth name is Chaim Witz. He was born in Haifa, Israel and once considered becoming a rabbi.

I'd like to see some proof of the Britney and Steven Tyler voting Bush this year. Tyler being from Boston would be a shoo-in to vote Kerry imo and he usually has a pretty liberal mouth. Britney although from the south has too many liberal friends and is close with Madonna who is very much anti-Bush.

I will hold out on those 2 until further evidence suggests otherwise.

More from Gene: "I am passionate about America. It has given me (and in my estimation, the world) everything I ever wanted... including the right to disagree, without winding up in a can of dog food. And, because of my passionate love of America, warts and all, I will stand up and defend her at the drop of a hat. [...] I wasn't born here. But, I have a love for this country and its people that knows no bounds. I will forever be grateful to America for going into World War II, when it had nothing to gain, in a country that was far away...and rescued my Mother from the Nazi German Concentration Camps.

"She is alive and I am alive because of America.

"And, if you have a problem with America, YOU HAVE A PROBLEM WITH ME."

Britney comes out swinging for Bush. It's been reported again and again that she's for Bush and none of her people have denied it. I couldn't find anything about Tyler.

Why does this matter? "Celebrities are interesting, and voters care about them," said Alan Schroeder, author of Celebrity-in-Chief: How Show Business Took Over the White House.

Celebrity-in-Chief? That would be the previous administration, Mr. Schroeder. You remember The Big Lug, the guy who rented the Lincoln Bedroom to his Hollywood buds? The guy who had a comment about every trivial news item, every day? The guy who, if he could have, would have cut the ribbon at every supermarket and mall opening in the US of A? That Celebrity-in-Chief?
