So I was watching Countdown with Keith Olbermann and for the second time within a few days was inspired to write a thread.

John Cusack was on the show to talked about his affiliation with moveon.org as well as his new film. He appears in a "TV ad that challenges voters to try to tell the difference between George Bush and John McCain".

Now my question to you all is, what do think about celebrities getting involved in politics? Is it o.k. to speak out when you have that kind of influence?

Recently I got into a discussion over this subject with my Mom in respect to the "Oprah endorsement." I thought that it was o.k. and without getting into too much detail I said that every person has a right to say what they think no matter how many sheeple they do or do not have following them.

What do you think?

Its perfectly acceptable for them to speak out. Of course, on the flip side, I've never understood why anyone cares what they have to say. Taken as a group, celebrities tend to be idiots.

LMAO


Agree- they are people and have very right to endorse whom ever they believe in. It doesn't mean we have to listen, though. Frankly, I don't give a rip who Oprah likes or dislikes. I respect her, I just prefer to listen to the issues and discussions from politicians (always with a grain of salt) and political experts.

I concur with this. I don't think people are really swayed by them. However, I do think that there are some who aren't usually into watching Countdown who might actually stop on the news channel if they spot their "boyfriend" (John Cusack) talking politics.

Just on a side note I found this thread about Cusack in politics. I find Cusack a pretty interesting fellow.

THEIR boyfriend???
He's MY boyfriend! At least that's what my husband calls him. Last night when the Olbermann segment was coming up, my husband called me in, telling me my boyfriend was going to be on... He knows what i like.


Anyway, yes, celebrities absolutely have a right to voice their personal opinions. Why shouldn't they? They're just like everyone else.

I also find him fascinating and interesting (besides being a hottie).
