Do celebrities “need” to vent against Republicans to remain au courant of the popular culture?

Howard Towt seems to think so. In a thoughtful post on the “What I’ve Learned” interviews in the January, 2011 issue of Esquire magazine, entitled “Establishing Credentials,” he notes that one theme that seems to unite the reflections of the various celebrities interviewed:

Each of these individuals establishes his anti-Republican credentials as a way of validating his remarks with the reader and letting us know that he is a part of our popular culture. It is a reflexive action and is endorsed by Esquire.

  1. We also have the case of bottom-feeder Kathy Griffin openly admitting that the only way for her to get any attention is to bash Sarah Palin.

  2. If these so-called “celebrities” feel that they have the right to be anti-GOP and anti-American, then I reserve the right to not attend their movies/concerts/shows and waste my hard-earned dollars on their so-called “talent.”

  3. I think that Hollywood Liberals attack any movement that supports independence and self-sufficiency BECAUSE they don’t understand it.

    It’s a fear of the unknown. They feel inadequate because they cannot solve the same problems that everyday Americans face everyday, and they rationalize their position by convincing themselves they they are the ‘norm’.

    Lot’s and lots of talented people go to Hollywood. But only some of them have the correct political outlook to be given a chance. Some of the homeless people in Hollywood are actually AS QUALIFIED as any of the Hollywood Superstars, but never get the chance to realize their dream because their politics don’t jive with the Hollywood community.

    Growing up in the United States, every human being is an expert at drama by the age of 12, but few of us ever get the chance. In order to prop up their fragile Ego’s, the people of Hollywood must convince themselves that they are somehow different from the rest of us.

    In order to balance their expectations of reality, they must adopt a system that is consistent with the ‘glass house’ they have constructed, and that contains elements that they can still relate to.

    The choice of political affiliation for unstable personalities is clear. They must become Liberals.

  5. Ah, liberal celebrities and that deep need of theirs to “bash” someone (Bush, Palin, “right-wingers”, etc.) openly in the press to establish their bona fides with others of their ilk. Quite pathetic behavior, really. Of course there’s a reason for all this “herd mentality.” Celebrities are usually the worst-educated folks around, rarely think for themselves, and are used to reading from a script rather than offering any original input. Given all that, it’s only natural to expect such behavior from them, especially since the shelf life for ‘celebrities’ is so limited, due to the media creating new ones every hour. I mean, it’s imperative that celebrities keep their names in the news, even looing foolish and with their feet in their mouths half the time.
