While browsing fundrace.org, the site that tells you what your neighbors (friends, celebrities, enemies) contribute to political campaigns, I saw this. (I'm assuming there is only one Jamie Farr, self employed, actor.)

Apparently he's a member of the Farr Right.

I believe you are correct. SAG union rules state such. Michael Keaton's real name is Michael Douglas, and he had to change it.

Fundrace.com is either out-of-date or incomplete. They show my $200 check to Bush-Cheney, but not my $50 or $150 Amazon.com donations.

Oh, yeah. He's very traditional. He was (is?) in Branson, MO doing things like serving as a game show host and such. Also, from the 70s, Gordon "Big Guy" Jump (RIP) was a GOP donor, too.

Did you actually READ what I wrote or is this just a knee-jerk mistake on your part???

They guy who played a character trying to get out of a war early (KLINGER) is voting AGAINST the guy who snuck out of the war early (KERRY).

Get it now? Anyone in there?

Stephen Baldwin and his wife are born-again Christians and he does Christian movies and youth evangelism. He's going to be a speaker at the RNC Convention this week. It's a nice catch for the Republicans and a slap in the face to his very liberal brother Alex.

Yeah, I read about Baldwin a couple days ago. I had never heard about his conversion. He's played some rather risque roles in the past... wasn't he with Sharon Stone in Sliver? Could have been Billy. Anyway, Thanksgiving at "mom's" must be interesting when both Stephen and Alex show up.

That was Billy. Stephen is currently appearing in the Christian endtimes movie "Six" [christiancinema.com].

Probably the Balwins all avoid political hot topics when they get together as a family but Stephen going to the RNC Convention would grate as much as Ron Reagan at the DNC Convention.

Gordon Jump? The child molester from "Different Strokes"?

I find it difficult to go in a bicycle shop after those two very special episodes. I am always afraid that the owner will try to ply me with beer and get me to play horsey.

Ah.

Sorry, anti-smoking is not a liberal vs. conservative issue. I've made clear here how one can be patently conservative and support anti-smoking laws. Nothing warped at all.

Col. Klink died a few years ago but he was conservative too. He showed up on Pol. Incorrect a couple of times and he was good to watch.

Intruding on the rights of private property owners is a liberal vs. conservative issue.

You support more intrusive government - that is warped for a conservative.

That earliest donation, to NATIONAL SECURITY PAC is interesting. According to http://www.historylearningsite.co.uk/political_action_committees.htm

they're the group that aired the infamous Willie Horton ads.

Farr is also, by the way, Lebanese. I have both Christian and Muslim Lebanese friends, they all have a high regard for him. I neither know nor care what his religion or Mideast conflict leanings are. Glad to have him on board.

Right-wing wacko Lebanese folks like me appreciate it when well-known Lebanese citizens visibly support the cause. I just found out that Selma Hyak is Lebanses - if she is also a conservative, I might fall totally in love.

And you support the rights on one person to infringe upon that natural rights of everyone else. That is warped for a conservative.

So you see, it's no so simple as you simpleton "conservatives" imagine. I as a true conservative look at the bigger picture.

End of discussion because it is not the topic of this thread.

Yup, Jamie Farr is a conservative Republican; he even appeared in the audience for Limbaugh's TV show. He's also a real-life Korean war vet (the only MASH cast member to do so), a long-time spokesman for the Arab-American community (he comes from an Orthodox Christian family of Syrian and Lebanese descent), and has contributed most of his spare time to charity and philanthropic work (golf and otherwise). I wonder if Mike Farrell and Alan Alda still talk to him.

TRIVIA NOTE: Farr made his film debut in The Blackboard Jungle, under his real name of Jamal Farrah, alongside Sydney Poitier, Vic Morrow, and future director Paul Mazursky. He played Santini, the Italian student whom everyone mocked for not knowing English.
