One of the main constituencies that tried to defeat President Bush was the Hollywood crowd. And as would be expected, many of them are now despondent. Burt Prelutsky perfectly describes this crowd and their involvement in politics.
When I titled my book "Conservatives Are From Mars, Liberals Are From San Francisco," I could just as easily have pointed out that liberals are from Hollywood. It really is a different planet from the one most of us live on.

To begin with, it is populated with high school drop-outs and drama majors making millions of dollars a year, convinced they should decide how the rest of us think, live and vote. What you must never forget about these pampered pets is that the first lesson they learned in acting class was to get in touch with their feelings. Those self-absorbing exercises only served to diminish whatever thought processes they might have possessed. The end result is that, at their best, they can mimic emotions and action, but have an impossible time trying to suggest they are thinking about anything at all serious.
Alec Baldwin promised to leave the country if Bush won in 2000. One can only hope that Bush's re-election will spur him to keep his promise.
