A Limo With A View

Maybe there is some hope left for Hollywood. Pat Sajak steps up and delivers a pithy dose of reality for anyone giving celebrities political relevance.

Does anyone decide which candidate to choose based on the recommendation of a TV talk show host or a singer/actress? If any group of citizens is uniquely unqualified to tell someone else how to vote, it’s those of us who live in the sheltered, privileged arena of celebrityhood.

Do your own research and form your own opinions - then get out there and vote. However, if you don't do your research and rely on others to manipulate your vote, then do all of us a favor and stay home on election day.

##That's my opinion##

I would extend this to political pundits and radio personalities.

And actually, I wouldn't say that the wrong people stay home on election day in as much as I would assert that far too many of the wrong people actually go to the polls. These 'wrong' people are the ones that vote not with their heads but with their hearts. They screw it up for us informed voters.
