Celebrity

My favorite recurring theme that I hear again and again from the wing-nuts out there is all the griping about Tim Robbins, or Danny Glover, or Leonardo DiCaprio, or whoever, over their speaking their mind on some issue. Some utter hacks have even written books about it. Here's the funny thing: These people are full of shit.

These people are clearly just jealous that our celebrities are simply better than theirs. They certainly can't claim they don't worship celebrities. After all they are the one's who have elected a movie star President of the United States and President of the NRA. Ahem, Arnold Schwartzeneggar anyone?

Any party who can complain about Sean Penn in one breath and who will then turn around and invite a B-lister like Ron "Timecop" Silver to not only attend the Republican National Convention, but to speak to the delegates has got one of two things; serious balls, or serious issues.

No, the simple fact is, they are jealous. For every Toby Keith or Gerald McRaney they have, we can pull out multiple multiple A-list celebrities such as Bruce Springsteen, or George Clooney, or Willie Nelson, or Johnny Depp, or Julia Roberts, or Tom Hanks, or Robert Redford, etc. etc.

Look at how the wing-nut-osphere embraced Mel Gibson if you still don't believe me.

I was remided of this by the recent warm response to the train wreck that is former one-hit wonder Ted Nugent at the recent NRA annual meeting. Is there a person alive who thinks this insane asshole would even exist in our collective memories if he weren't an outspoken conservative? Anyone?

What next? "I cede my 10 minutes to the distinguished Senator Larry the Cable Guy"

I can't help but laugh whenever I hear a conservative praising Nugent. Can you imagine Phyllis Schlafly rocking out to "Wang Dang Sweet Poontang?"

only know three things:

1) In the late '70s Phyllis Schlafly was lookin' so clean, especi'lly down in between (because she shaved her pubic area);

2) She was also so sweet when she yanked on one's meat, down on the street, that it was known she couldn't be beat

and
3) Ted Nugent was not very good at disguising the identities his songs' subjects.

He was essentially the male Carly Simon that way.
