You mean, when he's not actively shooting but instead posing for the cameras who are actively shooting?

I've always wondered about the Hollywood non-elite. Do those actors serving as models, waiters, or bartenders vote for Democrats or Republicans? And are they elite? Just how elite are the Hooywood elite anyhow? Are they more elite than the officers of the Carlyle Group, the owners of a sports team, the owners of an energy company? What if they drive a Prius, believe in Scientology, make movies about The Passion--are they still elite? Or are only liberals elite?

=astro, too elite for my shirt...

What? According to the last 2 elections something in the neighborhood of 50% of the population give or take a few thousand, support liberal causes. Read the papers. Or hell, look it up on Fox. They were sort of forced to report it too

This is known as "The Rest of the Story" yes, that label of "elite" and other such buzz words is part of the "Pay No Attention to the Man Behind the Curtain" game.

Re: At least Bush Won't Govern by watching the Polls...........

If you actually took the time to read the whole post my comment was in response to why people who are very left wing have a hard time being voted into office. Look at Hillary, she has been slowly attempting to bring herself to the middle. I do not buy what she is trying to sell. She is still very left wing, and just trying to hide her spots.

In reference to the last election. One of Kerry's hardest sells was convincing the middle of the road and righties that he wasn't a left wing nutjob. Obviously people weren't buying it, he lost. In fact, many people voted for him not because they liked him, but because they hated Bush. I'm sure many people voted for Bush only because he wasn't Kerry. I'd be willing to bet that more people voted for Kerry because he wasn't Bush than the other way around.

Well I did read you posty. Thats why I answered the way I did. But be serious. The current regime wouldnt be able to get elected if they were honest. tehy had to present themselves as something tey weren't then got "lucky" with all teh wars and the'yre just pimping ig for all its wortyh. The Man Behind the Curtain.

And as far as voting Right/Left.. The left controlled the trajectory of this contry for good or ill from 1933 till just the last 10 yrs. Hardly paints an anti left picture.

And the last 2 elections were too close for the Right to claim any kind of moral victory, just teh lamesty of administratve victories.
