I know it's a holiday but

you really need to read this right now. Or tonight after fireworks. Or soon. "The Pledge We Can Believe In" for Obama's supporters in Hollywood. It is a classic work.

I still love this quote from 2004 attributed to Alice Cooper:

"If you're listening to a rock star in order to get your information on who to vote for, you're a bigger moron than they are. Why are we rock stars? Because we're morons. We sleep all day, we play music at night and very rarely do we sit around reading the Washington Journal."

Replace rock star with any celebrity. Like the black tv actor who thinks he "paved the way" for an Obama presidency because he played the Pres on a tv show. (I guess he's got the arrogance down pat.) Are people stupid enough to vote because of that? I despair.

Of course there are celebrities who are intelligent, well-read, and know what's going on. And they are as entitled to their opinions as anyone else. Unfortunately they have a grip on the minds of many people who will vote for someone simply because a star tells them to. And knowing that, celebrities should shut up.

Hey, you never fail to put a little smile on my face in the mornings. I love how you just say what's on your mind. It is a bit refreshing in this age of "political correctness".
