I'll file this under "entertainment" rather than "politics" just because it's so hilarious. "Hollywood Liberals Say Most Americans Agree With Them."
Hollywood celebrities attending the Democratic National Convention in Boston this week declared that an overwhelming majority of Americans agree with their liberal political views. ...Right, but "appealing" doesn't equal "possible". Sure, if socialism worked I'd be all for it. Why not? Plenty for everyone; no one has to work too hard; sign me up. I'm sure it sounds great to millionaire movie stars who have absolutely no concept of what money is worth or what it means to work for a living.
But [Rob] Reiner added that liberals are now mobilizing and eventually will achieve success against the prevailing conservative juggernaut.
"We (liberals) don't even have to be on a level playing field. If we are on a slightly less level playing field, our ideas are so much more appealing to the public than theirs," Reiner explained.
Actor Ben Affleck said at a DNC celebrity panel discussion on Wednesday that America's political views are solidly to the left.Hey Benny, there actually are polls of people in America, and surprisingly the numbers don't line up with the leftist tripe you're normally surrounded with in Hollywood.
"If you polled all people in America, probably 65 percent of people would align themselves with the Democrats," Affleck said at the panel discussion titled "Funny But True: Important Issue in 2004."
Affleck believes that conservatives place so much pressure on the media to cast them in a positive light that it skews the objectivity of the news.Some? Some?! "When asked who would be a better president, the journalists from outside the Beltway picked Mr. Kerry 3 to 1, and the ones from Washington favored him 12 to 1. Those results jibe with previous surveys over the past two decades showing that journalists tend to be Democrats, especially the ones based in Washington." Yeah, maybe "some".
"Most reporters, too, some of whom are Democrats, too, bent over backwards to say, 'Well I have to be fair, so I have to endlessly play up the Clinton blow-job story,'" he said.
Left-wing filmmaker Michael Moore says public opinion polls prove that the American people side with the left. ...Holy freaking crap I hate this guy so unbelievably much. He should know by now that we conservatives don't believe in "group" identity; we try to screw each minority member individually. It's not normally necessary to wake up as early as he thinks, however, since most minorities are so lazy and don't get out of bed until noon unless it's the first of the month.
"They are up at six in the morning trying to figure out which -- you know -- minority group they are going to screw today -- the hate that they eat for breakfast," Moore said. "Our side, we never see six in the morning, unless we have been up all night," he added.
"Hollywood is not an evil empire within. It is human beings, tax-paying citizens that are not defined by their vocation nor their geographical location," [Janeane Garofalo] said.I'd love to see the tax returns from these movie stars. Why do I get the feeling that they shelter most of their income from taxes rather than gleefully bending over for dirty Uncle Sam?
