Using Celebrities to Demonize Hollywood

Arnold, Rudy and plenty of Christian rock will help to provide some of the highlights of the upcoming GOP convention. The Republicans (like the Dems) are looking to recruit celebrities to help spread their message. The only celeb mentioned by organizers so far is Ron Silver, a fixture on Fox News and not that much of a celeb, who they hinted was concerned about coming because it might hurt his career (he denied that account).

I don’t get the angle here. Why not continue along the path of demonizing Hollywood? Why go off message at this point?

And speaking of celebrities at the convention, it turns out that Colin Powell will not be among those in attendence. Interesting.

I wonder if he’d consider giving me his pass?

Concentration is important!
