George Clooney, Secretary of State


Saturday night was the 97th annual White House Correspondents Dinner, where fortunately for our great Republic, Washington was able to mingle with Zooey-Deschanel, Lindsey Lohan, Rosario Dawson, Elizabeth Banks, Reese Witherspoon and George Clooney. Just so you know, Yahoo news tells us Rosario "flashed way too much cleavage for the conservative affair," (wait a minute, there's such as thing as too much cleavage?) and LiLo wore "a safe-yet-lackluster plunging black dress."

I'm told actors and actresses are people also, but I haven't seen the proof. And they have just as much right to an opinion as everyone else, but we don't encourage politicians to listen the policy opinions of six-year olds so why we would applaud them soliciting opinions with the six-year old's equivalent is beyond me.

I know, I know, we are led to believe no one is listening to what LiLo thinks about Iran or unemployment benefits. But can we be sure? After all, Congress had Steven Colbert testify on immigration policy. And he testified as the character he plays on TV. It would be as if Mike Brady were called to testify on extended families.

The Republicans are just as star struck as the Democrats, but it seems like there is a greater portion of the entertainment industry attending these type of events when the Democrats are in power. Makes sense, Hollywood loves the Dems.
