Bo Derek and Sarah Michelle Gellar

...are Republicans!

I may now have to use the internet for it most frequently-used purpose....

Finding information.
See here for slide show of night Right-wing celebrities.

And here's a list from a Fleetwood Mac site of Republican celebrities of stage, screen and recording studios.

And wiki.
Hooray for Hollywood
But..Denzel Washington? Really?

I thought he made his living playing angst-ridden anti-everything good hand-wringers? You know, the Henry Fonda or Jack Hawkins type of person; kind of like me playing Harold Pinter or Polly Toynbee...

There may be hope yet.

Her husband is but she isnt.

Sarah “So, I will not speak about candidates or issues. Aside from saying I am pro stem-cell research.”

"I have good friends, gay couples, who've been together for 18 years. It drives me crazy that in the eyes of the law, their love isn't acknowledged when I have girlfriends who have married four times by the age of 25."

What do you think about the 2008 election result?" She says:
"I'm thrilled. I couldn't ask for anything better. The only thing that breaks my heart a little bit is that Proposition 8 went through. I think it's criminal. It's shameful"

Even though they can have a civil ceremony?

Anonymous...Thanks for posting, and...interesting.

Stem-cell research - clearly not that kind of Republican.

I can find the quote about gay couples, which only shows she approaves of some form of gay marriage. Doesn't stop her being a republican.

The quote about the election result is about an election result - but, frustratingly, it doesn't say WHICH election. The Proposition 8 does tend to the November 2008 argument though, doesn't it?

Fair enough, then.
You may be right about that. I might very well be wrong.

Half of my flinty Thatcherite heart may be breaking.

Incidentally, if you Google;
I might very well be wrong said Senator Obama you get
"'I might very well be wrong,' said Senator Obama" - did not match any documents.

and this
I might be wrong said Senator Obama "I might be wrong said Senator Obama" - did not match any documents.

I was wrong Senator Obama "I was wrong said Senator Obama" - did not match any documents.

I was wrong President Obama "I was wrong said President Obama"


I was wrong Barack Obama "I was wrong said Barack Obama" - did not match any documents.

So he must be right, and I might be wrong.

But point taken about not believing everything you see on the internet.

PS, here's the link to the You Tube post.

She looks very happy, doesn't she?

Actually, the real clue was her starring in loopy anti-Republican screed 'Southland Tales':

On the other hand, who cares? She's past thirty and she screwed with any script that requires her to do more than spout one-liners. Right about now, she's a trivial pursuit question.

Welcome, DJ, and thanks for your comment.

How dare you!

Freedom of expression is a fine thing and also I admit occasionally bringing facts into the picture can add value to it - if they're the right facts of course -
... but dissing SMG; nope, can't see the value in that myself.

Actually, some critics of Southland tales express the view that it's at least libertarian-themed; but clearly not Republican.

I'm beginning to think this isn't my best post ever.

May I refer you to:


in evidence that occasionally I know what I'm doing?
