List Of Alleged Republican Celebrities

Remember, these people are considered innocent of conservatism until found guilty by a competent tribunal.

EXPLANATION FOR THOSE WHO ARE CONFUSED: Some wonder what the BTK killer is doing on the list. Or Mary LeTorneau.

It's simple. (I think.) The list is taken directly from Wikipedia. Wikipedia is "edited" by anyone who wants to log on, and any topic that is remotely political becomes a game of constant editing and re-editing by opposing political forces, sometimes with prankish intentions. (BTK killer, for example.)

As it's mostly liberals doing Wikipedia editing -- the whole "community" bullshit they stroke themselves over -- we're usually on the wrong side of the numbers and intensity of interest.

I'm told that anything to do with Palestein or Israel is the subject of furious minute-by-minute "Jews Suck!" "edits," for example.

Anyway, that's why those oddball names are on there. Ignore them.

Another Update: But this does cast doubt on some of the surprise entries on the list, as names like "Grace Slick" could just be added as a joke.

Meaning the only names on the list you can trust are those you already know to be Republican or Republican-leaning, making the list... a waste of time.

Except for obscure names, I think. Who would think to pull a prank with the name "Bob Gale," writer of the Back to the Future movies? (Damn, that was a tight, smart script.) The name is so random that my BS detector doesn't go off when I see it.

Back to original entry.

It's kind of sad how few there are. As I speculated on the webcast show a few weeks ago, I think it's a demonstration of how vindictively liberal Hollywood is. After all, even considering that actors, writers and such tend to skew liberal Democrat, surely there must be 10 or 15% of Hollywood types who are actually Republican. It couldn't be much lower than that.

And yet, because most B or C level celebrities have to worry about their next check (unlike A-level people like Arnold Schwarzenegger or Bruce Willis), they keep silent about their politics.

We hear a lot of yap from B, C, and D level liberal celebrities. Apparently they don't fear their politics will hurt them in the business. But we don't hear much from the B, C, and D level conservative celebrities-- and, again, they must exist.

But they're quiet, because they know getting a job requires goodwill from a producer, and they know that there'll be less goodwill from a liberal producer or executive if it's discovered your guilty of Republicanism. In the first degree.

A lot of these are pretty well known-- Robert Duvall, for example. Most of us know he's a founder of a Republican morning club that meets monthly.

But there are some surprises. GRACE SLICK of Jefferson Airplane/Starship? And an admitted "life-long Republican" to boot? WHAT?

Emily Proctor? Well, she's from North Carolina, so it's not shocking, but I'd never heard she was a Republican before.

Tony Danza? Ummm... let's skip over that one. He's just "Republian-linked," anyway.

Ivan Reitman? I guess he got too rich off of Stripes and Ghostbusters to not be a Republican.

Kurt Russell is listed as a "Libertarian," but we know he just ays that to keep his liberal pseudowife happy. A lot of people use "libertarian" to soft-pedal their actual politics; hey, archliberal Bill Maher claimed to be a "libertarian" for years.

And of course Adam "I'm Not Related To Those Other Idiots" Baldwin, who, per female reader demand, will become the permanent Cowbell Beefcake Dude here at AoSHQ.

Flashback: Lara Flynn Boyle, Dirty-Kinky Rightwing Hot.

Not only is she rightwing, rich, and an unabashed Bush-booster, she occasionally strips naked on airplanes and tries to have sex with random passengers, which is definitely a part of the Ace of Spades Lifestyle (TM) that I haven't yet dared myself.

On Grace Slick and Liberal Bubblehead Bullshit Happytalk: I should have suspected Grace Slick was a conservative. Because conservatives, by their nature, tend to recoil in disgust from the happytalk liberal conventional wisdom.

She was asked, by some idiot interviewer, if she thought she was sexier now (at around 50 or so) than she was when she was twenty.

She could have done the Madonna/Sharon Stone bullshit about feeling "sexier than ever" and being in her "prime sexual peak" and that crap.

Instead, she told the truth. She said something to the effect of: "I hate getting old. I hate not being thought of as a sex object the way I was when I was younger. I hate no longer attracting the eyes of men who used to stare at me. Getting old just sucks."

The impulse to speak uncomfortable truths is a conservative one. Liberals claim to have this impulse, but they don't. They just endlessly regurgitate the same herd-pleasing nonsense and call themselves "courageous" for daring to say what everyone else is saying.

Now, mind you, I'm not saying older women can't be sexy or any of that. I'm just praising her for being offered a pretty stupid question and answering it with a bit of uncomfortable candor her moronic interviewer wasn't expecting.

And hey, she's right. It does suck getting old. There are benefits to it, but I haven't enjoyed a birthday myself since my 25th one, and I only liked that one because my auto insurance rates went down. Minus that minor benefit, I think I'd've preferred to remain 22 for the rest of my life.
