The standalone clip, entitled 3am, has been posted on YouTube. Republican candidate Donald Trump is seen with a copy of a book called Great Speeches by A. Hitler in the video. When Homer signals that he might vote for Trump, Marge says: "If that's your vote, I question whether I can ever be with you again." Homer replies: "And that's how I became a Democrat."

    Obama Skips Border Chaos, Will Fundraise in Austin with Director of Pro-Illegal Immigration Film President Barack Obama is refusing to visit the turbulent U.S.-Mexican border, where a flood of illegal immigrants continues to overwhelm the region. Instead, Obama will visit the home of Austin-based filmmaker Robert Rodriguez this week as part of a trio of Texas fundraisers. The Austin visit features tickets ranging in price from $5,000 to $32,400. The July 9 fundraiser also will feature actors Rosario Dawson, Danny Trejo and Jessica Alba. Both Trejo and Alba star in Rodriguez's ultra-violent Machete franchise. The first film in the series...

    Her story is the stuff Hollywood films are made of. She is a severely disabled woman with an inspiring story and the singer of a sweet song entitled "Alone and Yet Not Alone," a piece about the person who stood by her side and helped with her struggles.  The song was recently nominated for an Academy Award. The singer is Joni Earekson Tada, who was left a quadriplegic at age 17 after a diving accident crippled her for life.  She can't even use her hands.  But despite her disability, she became an artist, an author, and a speaker.  A strong and powerful advocate...

    In 2003, ahead of a U.S. attack on Iraq, a robust anti-war movement in Hollywood included [2] a TV commercial starring Martin Sheen and Sean Penn visiting Baghdad. There were online petitions signed by Ed Asner; letters to President George W. Bush pleading for peace were signed by Matt Damon, Tim Robbins, Barbra Streisand and Alec Baldwin; former M*A*S*H star Mike Farrell fronted multiple press conferences where celebrities denounced war. In interviews, Janeane Garofalo stopped identifying herself as an actor -- she preferred to be called a member of the U.S. anti-war movement. The good news for President Barack Obama...

    Forty-one days after legendary Motown singer-songwriter Stevie Wonder vowed to boycott Florida, Miami Beach’s sultry sultry summer evenings called out to him and he couldn’t resist. Jose’ Lambeit’s Gossip Extra broke the story Tuesday that the legendary recording artist spent the weekend in South Florida’s legendary South Beach before jetting off to Los Angeles. During a Canadian performance on July 14, Wonder told the audience he would boycott Florida, saying, “for those of you who’ve lost in the battle for justice.. we can’t bring them back. What we can do is we can let our voices be heard.” He made...

    It’s no surprise that many Hollywood actors and actresses are on the left side of the aisle. But what is a surprise -- and a nice one at that -- is to see some of them stand by their ideology even when many liberals on Capitol Hill will not. Last Wednesday, while many Democrats on Capitol Hill stood silent on a big civil liberties issue, one major celebrity went on twitter to chastise some of his ideological allies. On an issue that they are both passionate about, the liberal actor John Cusack -- the star of films like “Being...

    Movie legend Eastwood hit headlines after his bizarre performance in Tampa, Florida last Thursday (30Aug12), during which the Dirty Harry star chatted to an invisible Obama about foreign policy and economics, suggesting it was time for the President to be replaced by his party's candidate, Mitt Romney. His eyebrow-raising antics provided great material for Penn, who is now a member of the leader's White House Office of Public Engagement, and he took the opportunity as one of the main speakers on the first night of the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte, North Carolina to mock the film veteran. Praising Obama...

    The latest solid proof that Hollywood really can't stand traditional Christianity has arrived in an unfolding boycott of Chick-fil-A, a Georgia-based fast-food chain that's rapidly spreading franchises across America. Chick-fil-A demonstrates a public faith by closing all its stores on Sundays and on Thanksgiving and Christmas. It's something the left ridicules but something anyone of any faith respects. It's the company's donations through its WinShape Foundation that have launched the intolerant gay left into action. Chick-fil-A has dared to donate their profits to groups like the Fellowship of Christian Athletes (Horrors!) and the Marriage and Family Foundation (No!). Chick-fil-A President...

    Before I read the two reviews of this animated feature this morning, I had said to myself over the past few weeks: "Pharmboy, this movie must really be awful since you cannot look anywhere without seeing some sort of promotion for it. A cry for help if I've ever seen one."Well, it appears even worse than that. I read two reviews (The New York Times and the New York Post) and both HATED this dreck, and each said that the absolute preachiness was worse than Al Gore and Obama, respectively. You know what to expect: bad corporations raping the environment....

    At 56 years of age, Sandra Bernhard hasn’t become any less outspoken. If anything, she’s become more so. Two years ago, the comedian and singer made headlines after allegedly suggesting that if Sarah Palin were to visit New York City, she may find herself getting “gang-raped by some of my big black brothers.” This is particularly true in her one-woman shows, the latest of which, I Love Being Me, Don’t You?, a mix of comedy, music, and dance, she’ll be performing at the Painted Bride starting today through Saturday. She spoke with The A.V. Club about politics, Playboy, and feminism....

    A comedian and actor went to Twitter to suggest that the death of Muammar Gaddafi should inspire American liberals to kill Sarah Palin, sparking a virtual fire-storm. That's just what actor and former soda spokesman Orlando Jones did when he turned the death of the Libyan dictator into a call to arms for American liberals to kill the poster woman for the Tea Party movement. 'Libyan Rebels kill Gaddafi, if American liberals want respect the better stop listening to Aretha & kill Sarah Palin(:' Mr Jones tweeted on Friday.

    George Clooney and Barack Obama is a perfect example of the ageless romance between Hollywood and Washington liberals.. I’ve been living in Los Angeles for three months now, writing a book on politics in Hollywood. The question people ask time and again is, “Why is the movie business dominated by liberals?” Some critics (chiefly bloggers James Hirsen and Andrew Breitbart, and now Ben Shapiro in his new book) think it’s a conspiracy. I don’t agree. I think this town cleaves to the Left for social, not political reasons.
  • Will Ferrell’s “The Other Guys” Opens Today, Can We Expect the Usual Bush Derangement Syndrome?

    So you’re watching a funny film and you’re thinking to yourself, “Why aren’t there more great comedies like this?” Then All of a sudden there is an unwanted “Bush is stupid” joke that no one asked for. You just went from amused to not being able to wait to tell your friends that there is yet another Hollywood film that is unable to curb unnecessary politics for 100 minutes. Will Ferrell and Adam McKay, two of the comedic powerhouses of the last decade; have made some great films that have been tarnished by unnecessary political editorializing. The opening of McKay’s...
