SHeer brilliance as usual.
Getting into the minds of Hollywood's elite is challenging at best.
About the only parallel I can make as to why those who benefit more from capitalism than most are the most ardent socialists is the same reason why so many otherwise rational individuals voted for the Dear Leader in 2008.
It's white guilt in a contorted fashion.
The Hollywood rich share a near universal guilt that they have taken away gold/wealth from others and should now be self enforced to give it back to the poor using government channels.
This differs from true capitalists who use charities rather than the worst use of funds ever devised; the US government. Its probably not too much more complicated that that.
Holy crap, George Will just assaulted Donna Brazille!
