Penn Gillette is consevative.
Bruce Willis has (unofficially) endorsed Fred Thompson for President (spoke about it on O’Reilly). Thompson was in Die Hard II, so they know each other ...
Incidentally - Mike Piazza apparently described meeting Rush Limbaugh as being akin to “meeting George Washington”.
Almost makes me less angry at Piazza for being so pathetic on my fantasy baseball team this season ...
Keiffor is nto a conservative but he does play one on 24!
That would be Steven Baldwin. He is I believe the only conservative Baldwin.
More lost youth and their families, to reach for Christ!
Yes Sarah Michelle Geller is conservative! That is awesome. I absolutely have a huge crush on her. Yes one of those crushes from afar when married (My wife thinks it is funny). lol. Of course it is nice her husband is conservative too...Freddie Prince Jr.
>> It seems to me that conservatives are the more intelligent members of our society. If so, is it any wonder that you dont find conservatives among the K-fed, Brittany, Lindsey, Paris crowd?
Jessica Simpson and Nick Lachey are definitely Republicans, and Britney Spears is supposedly a Republican (asked to perform at 2000 Convention, but bowed out because conservatives didn’t like the idea).
There are a LOT of crazy celebrity conservatives as well. Stephen Baldwin is a drug addict. Marilyn Manson is virtually satanic. Vince Vaughn has had addiction problems. Vincent Gallo caught flak for performing in an explicit hardcore scene (with actress Chloe Sevigny) in one of his movies.
And, Craig Biggio’s batting average has fallen significantly over the past few seasons.
>> even the staunchly Republican Bing Crosby had affairs and smoked marijuana
I’d bet you could add Kid Rock, Ted Nugent, Alice Cooper, the entire band ZZ Top, and 50 Cent to the marijuana-user list.
John Stossel also does CPAC conventions.
I'm a conservative and I believe in and support the D.I. and Constitution. There's nothing in either that says I have to accept your views -- or anyone else's -- as to Whom or What that Creator may be, or any of the specifics that derive from that belief. I'm with Poser on what defines "conservatism." Specific religions or religious beliefs have nothing to do with conservatism or the Constitution, as it's clearly spelled out in Amendment I.
Ah, well as long as it isn’t Alec!
As I was going over the sports stars, I noticed that a lot of them are very conservative (NASCAR being absolutely dominated by conservatives, followed by golf and football). It’s great to know that about the sports world, but it’s even better to know that these people go out and make a living and don’t force their political views on other people, just because they have a pulpit. Hollywood could learn a lesson.
As is (former supermodel/business woman) Kathy Ireland.
I remember he gave a speech after one of the 2000 presidential debates.
Agreed, it’s NOT my views and it is also NOT about a religion.
Just an FYI. Patricia Heaton and Kelsey Grammer are co-starring in a new television series this fall. I hope it's funny and well-written. There's not much on the tube I'd waste my time watching anymore.
“Willis has been trying to distance himself from Bush recently. He was supposed to make a pro-war movie about Iraq, but it never happened.”
i know WIllis has been distancing himself which just tells me he is a wuss but i did hear that the Iraq movie was supposedly still on
i could be misinformed however
Don’t know much about Lancaster, but Fonda played a real nasty guy in “Once Upon A Time In The West.”
I always assumed that’s how Jane got that way, but I didn’t know.
“What about Drew Carrey?”
Carey is a self-described libertarian, not a conservative. Although that’s about as close to conservative as you get in Hollywood.
That's because he's a Socialist (by his own admission).
I always enjoy seeing Adam Baldwin, from "My Bodyguard" to "Independence Day." There is a quality about him that inspires confidence. Naturally he's a political conservative! Though I'd be a fan regardless.
Over my life, I've known literally dozens of staunch, honorable Republicans and Republican conservatives (for those who note the difference) who smoke pot. Lots and lots of them.
I've also known a few self-professed high-profile-in-their-churches "Christian" Republicans who were major jerks I wouldn't trust in a business exchange as far as I could throw them. They were hypocrites of an order that NONE of the pot-smokers I've known ever were. I'd trust a pot-smoking Republican in principle and in fact before I'd trust a look-at-me-I'm-a-Christian church "leader" any day. And I'm a Christian who thanks the Lord daily for Christ and the bible; I know that all my blessings are through His grace. I also know that just because a guy goes to church and waves his hands high in the air and shouts "Yes!" doesn't mean he's not a fraud.
My mistake. I thought I had seen him in a photograph with Limbeaugh on this forum sometime last year at a gathering for the “24” program. I guess having your picture taken with a good conservative like Rush doesn’t make you one.
>> I’d trust a pot-smoking Republican in principle and in fact before I’d trust a look-at-me-I’m-a-Christian church “leader” any day.
There is quite a difference between the acknowledgement of definite imperfections and hypocricy within the Christian community, and declaring outright that you’d sooner trust a dope-smoking Republican than any professed Christian. That’s just dumb.
The idea that hypocricy is the highest crime that can be committed is simply a straw-man argument constructed by hedonists to use against any moral person displaying any imperfection at all. Christianity is a religion which, on its face, acknowledges that hypocricy is inherent in ANY advocacy of a moral life. The Bible states that we are all, necessarily, fallen beings that will absolutely give into temptations that we certainly should resist.
The failure of every Christian to fully live up to the teachings of Christ does not negate the importance of his teachings, nor does it indicate hypocricy (defined as the advocacy of a tenet in which you do not actually believe). It merely indicates the nature of every person on this planet to fail to live up to a moral ideal.
“Carey is a self-described libertarian, not a conservative. “
True but he did contribute to the Republican Party and was at Bush’s inauguration
I always heard that Richard Boone was a “Friend of Dorothy”, but could not verify it.
Always loved Rip Torn in the Cincinatti Kid. Better than McQueen (who was a lib) in that film.
Thanks for the link... very interesting. I think the one that caught my eye the most was Tracy Lords... conservative!Obviously much smarter than one might have guessed.
