Clooney: I ruined Kerry's presidential race
Ireland Online ^ | 1/14/06 | Ireland Online

Posted on 01/14/2006 5:31:52 PM PST by wagglebee

George Clooney is convinced he ruined John Kerry's chances in the race for US president in 2004 - by snubbing an invitation and hurting his feelings.

The Ocean's Twelve actor was one of several screen stars invited to ride on Kerry's election train, but it all went downhill for the Democrat when Clooney stayed away.

He recalls: "Kerry asked me to ride on his train - he had a train going cross-country after he was nominated and some actors went on board. I called him and explained that I couldn't do it. I'd hurt him. I'd actually caused him harm at the polls."

I'm not so sure his absense hurt Kerry, but everytime he flaps his lips, it certainly helps us.

Clooney did ruin sKerry's chances as well as his father's Congressional race. Nick Clooney ran for Congress in the KY-04. The Elder Clooney portrayed himself as pro-life, pro-gun RAT. George Clooney's outspoken liberalism sunk his father at the polls in 2004.

Yeah... you know, just the other day I was saying to myself, "If ONLY Kerry had gotten strong, consistent support from George Clooney... he just might've been able to pull it out of the bag..."

So I guess we can call off the election investigation in OHIO!

The guy has delusions of relevance. IIRC: He couldn't even get his dad elected.

Sure George, whatever. I suspect it had more to do with him knowing if he showed up on sKerry's train, his Dad the conservative Democrat from KY(?), had no chance in his State Assy run. Of course he lost anyway.

With Rula Lenska nowhere in sight, Kerry was doomed.
