Celebrities and Politics

And now a special political rant from “Hot Kelly”

Dear Celebrities (A-Z list),

When the hell are you all going to learn that talking about your political views has no value to the American public? I know this is probably just another ploy to get attention, since lets face it, the reason most of you are in the entertainment industry is strictly because you crave constant attention and approval. I know there is a small number of you who actually truly love and have a passion for the arts and for that small number, I tilt my hat to you, but lets face it―most of you are just one role away from being on “Dancing with the Stars,” and you enjoy keeping your pie-hole in constant rotation.

Eva Longoria―I love how you say, “Anyone with half a brain is voting for Obama.” Really? Is that the best you could think of? Not, “I am voting for Obama because I like his stance on foreign policy or his tax cuts for 95% of Americans.” Really? I say again, really?

Matt Damon―As much as I loved your skit with Sarah Silverman, you really need to learn to stop for a second and really think about the things that come out of your mouth before all the words spew out into one giant cat shit sandwich. You are concerned if Sarah Palin believes in dinosaurs? Because you are convinced McCain is going to flat line his first term? You discredit Palin because she was a small town mayor and Governor of Alaska for a “measly” two years, even though Obama has been running a political campaign his last two years in the Senate with no executive experience?

Also, I will include the religious right: Obama is not the Anti-Christ. He’s a good man who cares about his country and even if he was the Anti-Christ, wouldn’t that be God’s will?

Now, I am not endorsing anyone here for President and you wanna know why? Because nobody gives a fuck what I think. Americans will vote for whom he or she believes is the best candidate to them. I’m not even saying don’t tell us who you’re voting for because you have every right to say that. I just don’t understand why you celebrities feel that you are all politcal scientists! You’re hurting you’re party more than helping … seriously.

I go to my accountant for financial help, I take my dog to the vet so that he can extract her asshole glands, and I go the movies so that you can entertain me. Is that so much to ask for, that you just take your
10-million dollar contract, act, and then go home to your nice estate in Bel Air? I think the person who said it best was none other than Bob Ritchie (aka Kid Rock):

“I truly believe that people like myself, who are in a position of entertainers in the limelight, should keep their mouth shut on politics. Because at the end of the day, let me tell you what I ‘m good at: I’m good at writing songs and singing. What I’m not educated in is the field of political science. And so for me to be sharing my views and influencing people of who I think they should be voting for … I think would be very irresponsible on my part. So I’ll just keep my mouth shut on that. I think celebrity endorsements hurt politicians. Because as soon as somebody comes out for a politician, especially in Hollywood, when they all go, ‘I’m voting for this guy!’ — I go, ‘That’s not who I’m voting for!’ … As soon as Oprah Winfrey pops up and goes ‘Ha-la-la-la-la,’ I’m like, ‘I love Barrack Obama. I hate Oprah Winfrey.’ I don’t hate her. I just don’t believe in her, so I don’t want any part of any of that. I think celebrities hurt politicians.”

I’m just sayin’ …

― Hot Kelly
