The National Republican Senatorial Committee put out a kitchen-sink type ad in Minnesota Monday, accusing someone of writing pornography, laughing at the disabled, humiliating minorities and demeaning women.
And I thought Republicans liked Bill O'Reilly.
Okay. The NRSC was taking a shot at Al Franken, and in his Minnesota Senatorial battle with Norm Coleman where Coleman felt necessary to call in the Marines. Um...Maroons...from Hollywood - aren't they all out there? - to explain why Al Franken is a terrible person.
John Ratzenberger, Robert Davi, Pat Boone and Victoria Jackson. No denying we're talking A-list Hollywood, but their standing in show biz should not be in question. They have just as much a right to speak as they do to perform their paid gigs. But when I hear those who say that "you are not your job" I'm guessing that more than most people, those in show biz (actors/comedians/singers) understand that when they do their job, they are most likely performing as someone they are not.
It's their job, not who they are.
