Posted on 11/11/2011 8:31:32 AM PST by Recovering_Democrat
Earlier this week, Obama revealed that he was at least considering delaying or denying the Keystone XL, the controversial pipeline that would carry tar sands oil from Canada to the Texas Gulf Coast. His hesitance to approve the pipeline is no doubt thanks the enormous tide of opposition that has risen up against it. From every green group on the books to impacted indigenous peoples to a cadre of outspoken celebrity activists, the opponents of Keystone XL have been gaining momentum indeed.
The latest and perhaps most unexpected celebrity to come out swinging at the Obama administration is Julia Louis-Dreyfus, the actress most famous for playing Elaine on Seinfeld. She's recorded a video with the Tar Sands Action campaign asking Obama to turn down the proposed pipeline, and has announced that she'll be attending the massive protest at the White House in Washington D.C. this weekend.

I tend to think I’m quite accustomed to smug, lefty pinhead celebs and their moronic political blather. Nowadays it’s become part of the constant background noise, if anything.
But living in a rather economically depressed vicinity that would greatly benefit from this project (not even counting the huge benefit to the country), this example really takes the cake. Although maybe I should just be glad that Dreyfuss didn’t add in with her statement a call for someone to kill Sarah Palin, like some of her other Hollywood comrades. God, I loathe these people.
She’s apparently a BIGGER IDIOT in REAL LIFE than she was on the show...................
And that’s saying something LOL.
Like I said, it’s not just how much money you make, it’s HOW you make you money. She’s been lucky to be able to play around all her life. Others have to WORK for their wealth.
I’m still waiting for someone with more intellectual heft to weigh in, like George Lopez or Snookie.
No wonder Jerry hired her. She’s perfect...........
"Sweet fancy Moses!"
It is so good to hear from actors who have engineering degrees in Petrochemical and geological backgrounds.
LOL, you’re good.
I mean, anyone can recognize that.
Basically this move is nothing but a sop for the enviromental racket to rake in the bucks. If you notice they never tell you why the pipeline is controversial because it is not, so basically the lawyers and other parasites are running a racket to seperate dollars from dumbasses. Enter this bimbo, exit her dollars (but I’ll bet fewer than the racketeers expected from such a rich person)

Full disclosure my WEst Texas oil and gas royalty took a nice pop today on this news.
She is also doing a radio PSA where she claims our national parks need more environmental regulations and are under-funded.
I suppose Laurie David would have vetoed her as a Seinfeld cast member if she did not hold such opinions.
“Excuse me Mr. President, she’s a celebrity. You better listen.”
“Celebrities - Is there ANYTHING they don’t know?”
