A couple of U-Hauls with guys packing baseball bats is headed for the convention and the cops have been told not to arrest anybody.

Consider the possibilities.

I did watch Bill on C-Span (I refuse to watch any "news" with "views"). Around my house, it's weird for me to watch anything on TV (I barely know how to use the remote), but I always catch them looking at what I watch.

My wife is a harsh critic. I said "isn't Bill's face orange too?" to which she replied "not as orange as Albright's." I hadn't even noticed Albright's makeup.

Bill said (at least) one obviously stupid thing for which he should be thoroughly lambasted. I haven't bothered looking through Twitter feeds to see if others noticed it as well.

Oh and Lena Dunham has got to be the most disgusting thing to ever pollute the media. Why does it seem that only gays and parents of gays adore her?

It's depressing to think that Lena Dunham is an opinion maker. She can't deliver a bloc of votes like the SEIU, but there are people alive who pay attention to her...........I'd like to think that celebrity endorsements don't count for much, but why do corporations pay them so much money to wear their make up or drive their cars. It counts for something.......Katy Perry married Russell Brand. That gives you some insight into the quality of her judgment, but she has come out strongly for Hillary. She'll influence some voters, particularly when she wears a low cut dress.......I know celebrities are entitled to their opinions and the free expression of those opinions, but something about it feels wrong. Tom Hanks has played some roles that generate a considerable amount of good will. That good will is transferred to Tom Hanks and, then, to the candidates he supports. There's something manipulative about this........There's no good evidence to show that movie and rock stars are blessed with any great wisdom or political insight. The evidence is rather to the contrary, but there they are........There should be a disclaimer attached to all their endorsements, like they do with pharmaceuticals. "The Surgeon General has determined that this celebrity has a history of failed marriages, expensive flops, and silly behavior. Consult your physician before taking his advice."

I would be willing to give more weight to a celebrity’s political opinion if it was based on special knowledge that they have. IF they said:

“I am an artist who views the word thru a different perspective and that perspective is…”
“I am an actor and I’m trained to get inside of characters who are removed from who I really am, so I’m able to quickly understand people and their personalities and my view is…”
“My career has taken me all over the world and had a chance to globally meet more people than most Americans- and my opinion is…”

But I don’t think that a celebrity opinion is to be valued more solely because they are famous.
