Only the dimmest of intellects care what celebrities think
Obama wants to use Hollywood's sanctimonious, celebrity half-wits to promote Obamacare to the dumb masses......
From Deadline.com -- Will Obamacare become plot fodder for CBS’ and A $500,000 grant awarded this week to USC Annenberg Norman Lear Center’s Hollywood Health & Society program certainly suggests it’s a possibility. In the latest push to get Tinseltown to promote President Obama’s Affordable Care Act, the decade-old program has received the money from the private California Endowment to give Hollywood producers, writers and execs details about the newly launched health insurance initiative.
Only a cretin would get his information solely from watching episodic, entertainment television, but then I just described most Obama voters didn't I?
I enjoy being mindlessly entertained by the overpaid jesters on TV as much as anybody, but when I even sniff a political message on a show, it's the last time I ever watch it. It's bad enough when the actors lecture the rest of America about how we should live our lives and what opinions we should have, but when they do that as part of their shows or movies, I refuse to support that with viewership.
