I have just read your matched set of articles on the rantings of the Hollywood Left (Hollywood Left — is there any other kind of Hollywood?). I am significantly torn in my opinion of whether their opinions ought to be aired more or less.
Unfortunately, the Moore, Sheen, Fonda, Sarandon, et al faction make my blood boil. However, their opinions and rantings are so outrageous that I really am tempted to say that their every utterance should receive “front page” treatment in all media. The theory being that, the more the public sees their rantings, the more disgusting they will seem and the less effective and believable they will be. That, however, implies that the American citizens are logical, reasonable individuals both capable and willing to make informed judgments. I am not sure what portion of my fellow countrymen fail that description.
The other side of my self-argument is that there is a really significant subset of our population whom you simply can not underestimate. They made Oprah and Martha Stewart hugely wealthy women. They have allowed Alec Baldwin to keep his citizenship after he promised to leave the country. They truly see the Dixie Chicks as deep thinkers. These folks anchor their lives and beliefs on the expressed thoughts of the latest “hot” commodity in the entertainment, athletic, and/or media world. My only hope of salvation is that these gullible citizens largely make up the 50% or more of Americans that do not vote in elections. But then again, they elected Bill Clinton and still adore him and bitterly hate George Bush.p>I shall continue this argument with myself.

A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.
Mr. and Mrs. American Spectator Reader, let P.J. O’Rourke talk sense to your kids.
In Britain, defending your property can get you life.
The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
