AP Touts Movie Stars as Political Verification

As the Breitbart movement pushes against the slant of the MSM, the MSM media pushes back. The Associate Press reports that what makes a presidential candidate is movie stars. It is not the support of the public or constituents that vote; it is not the candidate's ideas, ideals, or voting record; it is not even as shallow as a candidate's charisma. It is movie stars.

Some of the dumbest people in the public eye are being promoted as the most important to politics.

This is line one of paragraph one of the story :
No presidential candidate worth his chauffeured SUV has reached his personal zenith without this: celebrities to vouch for them.
After this statement the article goes on to describe how stars attract attention to a campaign, and then the name dropping begins. Here is a chronicle of this amazingly critical reporting of who the celebrities support:
Newt Gingrich
  • Chuck Norris
Mitt Romney
  • Jeff Foxworthy
  • Kid Rock
  • Gene Simmons
Rick Santorum
  • Dave Mustaine
  • Jim Bob Duggar
  • Michelle Duggar
  • Josh Duggar
Ron Paul
  • Kelly Clarkson
  • Snoop Dogg
  • Oliver Stone
  • Juliette Lewis
  • Vince Vaughn
  • Joe Rogan
  • Jesse Ventura
Barack Obama
  • Tyler Perry
  • Cee Lo Green
  • Oprah Winfrey
  • Tom Hanks
  • George Clooney
  • Will Smith
  • Magic Johnson
  • Antonio Banderas
  • Robert De Niro
  • Foo Fighters
  • Jim Belushi
Jeez. If celebrities are important, look who should be the Republican nominee!

Continue with the Breitbart movement. Hit the MSM and don't let Hollywood influence you. Document and show their insanity.

By the way, best line in the story had to be a total flub on the author's part:
On Friday, Obama was on a furious fundraising pace, hitting five events in two cities in one day and raising at least $4.8 million.
Did your brain say "Fast and Furious fundraising" too? Ouch!
