Have they no sense of shame - or at least of irony ? But these people apparently take themselves seriously. I hope they don't expect us to ...
(I don't see much 'cult-like service' here, though. I see a lot of posers. If I knew who any of them were I'd boycott their films that I don't watch anyway. I'll make a start by deleting the kids Chilli Peppers mp3s. Or maybe I should put them on a file-sharing website)
Andrew Breitbart wields the scalpel :
This video illustrates that the current celebrity class are not citizens but serfs. They need a leader to put their minds in the right place to do the right thing. They are not heroic individualists seeking to extend America’s promise but conformists who chose to sit out and complain during the tough years in order to ensure their guy got in the next go-around ...
They never spoke up against the movies that demonized our military.
They never made movies to counter the libel.
They took the easy route. And blamed Bush for everything.
Moore’s nauseating video — which, like Steven Soderbergh’s “Oceans” franchise, grants a pristine look into the modern celebrity’s sense of self-importance — is not a sign of desire to serve the country under Obama. Watch, by March this pledge like New Year’s resolutions will fall by the wayside. It is a sign that the Democrat is in the White House now. It is a sign that they get to sleep again in the Lincoln Bedroom.
Twenty years ago AIDS was the number one cause for the Hollywood left. Remember the trendy red ribbons at all the self-aggrandizing awards shows? Hollywood has moved on (dot org) to better blame-your-fellow-American causes. But President Bush didn’t. And aside from Bob Geldof and Bono, they ignore this president’s demonstrable goodness ...
Remember this video: It is a instructive relic of the era of celebrity decadence and boutique anti-Republican activism under President Bush. It is a sickening display that they want fast and easy absolution for having comported themselves like ill-behaved children for eight difficult and war-torn years.
Good luck, President Obama. The rest of you can go to hell.
And Iowahawk (who else ?) the rapier :
Totally-wasted-on-heroin guy from the Red Hot Chili Peppers: I... uhhh.... ihhh... ahhhh... monkey funky like da junky...
Jason Bateman: I plehhhhdge... to fondle this microphone in a whimsically provocative manner.
Mr. Haney from Green Acres: To never give anyone the finger when I'm driving again. I will instead moon them, with my frightening elderly haunches.
'Greg and Darma' chick with scary feral baby: To save water, by never bathing my child.
Underwear model: I pledge.
I think it's that Spunky Winkerbean chick, the one who had a boob reduction: I pledge.
Brain-fried Chili Peppers guy: To caaaare? For? America's elderly?
Pockmarked guy in Urban Outfitters T-shirt: To make sure America's senior citizens have access to free healthcare and iPods and ringtone downloads.
Spunky Winkerbean: So that our next generation's USB memories will not be forgotten.
Eva Longoria: Now I'm pledging here on the other side of the frame!
Absolutely no clue who this is, whatsoever: To bring awareness to mental disease, like I am doing right now.
Weirdly bloated lips chick: To advance research into stem cells, collagen, and Botox.
Huh? Maybe I'm just getting too old but this is another guy who simply isn't ringing a bell: To spread the awareness of autism -- by becoming autistic.
