There is a reason why Laura Ingraham titled her book "Shut-up and Sing". The message was Barbara Streisand can sing but when it comes to politics she doesn't know what she's talking about so she just needs to shut-up!! I think this applies to most of the people in Hollywood. A lot of them can act/sing thats why they are famous but they don't have a clue when it comes to having a competent opinion on politics or current events. There are exceptions on both sides of the aisle i.e. Dennis Miller on the right and Ben Affleck on the left but for the most part this is true.

I'm a TV/movie person so if I like someone its almost better if I don't know much about their personal, political views. Goldie Hawn and Drew Barrymore are 2 of my favorite actresses but they are both complete airheads. Hawn lobbied for some bill against being cruel to circus elephants (which was absurd in and of itself) and she was asking people to contact their representatives. When asked who her representative was and had she contacted him/her she didn't even know who her representative was, sigh... Drew Barrymore did some ridiculous video tour trying to find out what politicians could do for her (a millionaire) and was upset when even Hillary Clinton wouldn't allow her to follow her around. I had to stop watching because I was so astounded at how shallow she was.

All of this leads to me watching O'Reilly and his people interview some of the Hollywood anti-war protesters. I could not believe how pathetic they were. When Fonda was told that 3 million Vietnamese died when we pulled out and was she worried about the Iraqis if we cut and ran, she had no answer. When Robbins was asked how we should stop Iran from developing nuclear weapons he just made some sarcastic answer about how it wouldn't be by bombing them. To top it off O'Reilly himself interviewed Whoopi Goldberg last night and said she had a right to her opinions but she needed to back them up. Her answer basically was that this was how she FELT and she didn't need to back up her opinions with fact. O'Reilly brought up a great point about how what if your opinion would put people in danger.

It must be nice to be a Hollywood liberal. You have fame so people pretend to care about your opinion so you get to share how you FEEL about life-altering events but you don't have to back them up with any facts.
