Why Is This News?

Drudge is linking to this story on the so-called "Cybercast News Service."
Richard Dreyfuss, the actor who starred in movies ranging from "Jaws" to "Mr. Holland's Opus," told an audience in Washington, D.C., on Thursday that "there are causes worth fighting for," and one of those is the impeachment of President George W. Bush.
Who gives a rat's ass what Richard Dreyfuss thinks about politics? He's an actor. Do you care to hear my views on sub-atomic physics? Didn't think so. So why report this? And a more pressing question: What was he doing speaking at the National Press Club? Dr. Joyce Brothers was all booked up?

Drudge is linking to the story because he wants to let us know, if we haven't heard already, that Hollywood is awash in radical leftists and smelly communists. Oh, and Jews. I can't believe I almost forgot the Jews—I really have to reread my GOP Blogging Handbook.

Wow, Hollywood leans left. CEOs tend to vote for Republicans. Anarchists don't shower. La-di-freakin-da! Who cares?

Hollywood actors: Stop making grand pronouncements on politics as if you had any idea what the hell you were talking about! A 10th-grade education and an IMDB entry don't entitle you to lecture me or anyone else on politics. That's what bloggers are for.

Drudge: Stop giving these actors media attention for their political views! Haven't you ever heard the expression "don't feed the trolls"? In the grand scheme of things, it doesn't matter what SAG members like Richard Dreyfuss, Robert Redford or Arnold Schwarzenegger have to say about anything other than acting or what it's like to have enough money to buy and sell any one of us ten times over.
