Republicans (HEART) Hollywood! Pass it on.The right has made the phrase "Hollywood liberals" the conventional wisdom. Of course Hollywood and liberals are in bed together, right?
But historically, republicans have been the party that recruits from Hollywood. Look at Wikipedia's list of actor politicians: Ronald Reagan, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Sonny Bono, Fred Thompson, Shirley Temple, Gopher from Love Boat--all republicans!
So my theory is that all the republican bravado about liberal Hollywood is just cover for their secret crush. That's why they nominate and elect actors them whenever they can. And it's also why they spend so much energy demonizing Hollywood. They're afraid they might fall for its irresitable charms.
