These days it seems every hollyweird celebraty has an opinion on politics...Charlie Sheen, Rosie Odonnle, Robert DeNiro, Sean Penn, Tim Robbins, Dixie Chicks, Neil Young, etc, etc. The list goes on and on.
What do you guys think of political comments made by entertainers?
But their exposure in the media, TV and other, gives far more weight to their words than they truely deserve IMHO
Originally posted by Crakeur What I don't like is when a celebrity starts talking about how this politician or that politician is stupid or dumb. More often than not, the celebrity has a high school diploma and maybe a year or two of college under their belt.

Why not let them speak? When people criticize celebrities for speaking their mind about politics my how they convienently forget about some stars who actually went into government.
After all Ronald Reagan became president, didn't he? He was once a Democrat, but he turned into a Republican. And he was actually president of SAG.
Arnold Schwartzenegger (The other "selected" politician in office), became governor of California.
Pat Paulsen, comedian. Democrat. Ran for President six times.
Former Representative Fred Grandy (R.-Iowa) ('Gopher' on the Love Boat for those old enough to remember). Elected four times to Congress.
Former Senator Fred Dalton Thompson (R.-Tenn), now D.A. Arthur Branch on Law and Order
Former Representative Ben "Cooter" Jones(D.-Ga.) (Was on the original "Dukes of Hazzard" as Cooter; forced out of his seat due to "redistricting")
Albert Dekker, Democrat, Served in the California Legislature from 1944-1946 in the 57th District (Hollywood). However, most know about his questionable demise.
