One of the few openly conservative, Republican people in Hollywood is Pat Sajak, host of the 25 year old Wheel Of Fortune television game show. Because he is who he is, only Mr. Sajak could have written this gem from Human Events http://humanevents.com:
If any group of citizens is uniquely unqualified to tell someone else how to vote, its those of us who live in the sheltered, privilaged arena of celebrityhood.
Can I get an AMEN, brother?!
The point of Mr. Sajak's column is that it really should not matter what the celbutard class says about who they are voting for and that you should too. And Mr. Sajak defends the right of those in the celbutard class to speak up on issues of the day. But, Mr. Sajak points out that because they are celebrities, people pay attention. And read his O. J. Simpson example.
People like Mr. Sajak make sense and that is probably why so few like Mr. Sajak end up becoming celebrities.
From what I see, it is emotional train wrecks with no strong foundation of any kind turn to becoming actors and actresses, singers, musicians, and other assorted entertainers. I know, that is not fair to lump everyone into the train wreck category, but it does appear that many of today's stars are just one step away from doing themselves in. That is sad. But, it does not mean that they have any vast knowledge of current events any more than you or I.
Like Pat Sajak who has had his head screwed on straight, there are some others, but they are so few real great examples for young people to look up to. And that is the real sad part.
So, to paraphrase Mr. Sajak, let the celebutard class make their endorsements, and take it with a grain of salt and inform yourself on the issues and who you are going to vote for.
