Stars Donate To Hillary's Campaign

A galaxy of Hollywood stars, including PAUL NEWMAN, REESE WITHERSPOON and NANCY SINATRA, have donated thousands of dollars to US Senator HILLARY CLINTON's political campaign.

Clinton, who is fundraising for the Democratic party, intends to use the money, which now stands at an impressive $17.1 million (GBP9 million), for a presidential bid.

Newman and his wife JOANNE WOODWARD both donated $2,000 (GBP1,135), while WALK THE LINE beauty REESE WITHERSPOON gave $1000 (GBP570) alongside EDIE FALCO and DANNY DeVITO, according to the New York Post.

Chat-show host JERRY SPRINGER gave the most to the cause - $4200 (GBP2,400) - while NANCY SINATRA gave a modest $200 (GBP110).

You are right, he was never "the standard", but using her looks as a determination of the validity of her candidacy?That's silly, but I guess allowing Rush Limbaugh or Neal Boortz to influence you rather than Hollywood might do this...

Please Hollywood, donate your fortunes to Hillary so she and the Democratic Party think she is invincable. She is by far the easiest Dem to defeat in 2008. This could be a 49 state run with only her home state of ?????? voting for her. She is a nasty, crooked, socialist hack. I can hardly wait....

And I wouldn't call her a lightweight, she's very much a socialist, that's hardly lightweight. This is why these wingnuts are so po'ed about her.

DVD/CD shredder's picture

DVD/CD shredder

I am glad to see that I am not the only one who votes with his wallet! I know I have missed some fairly decent movies in the past several years, but I just cannot make myself go watch the Tom Hanks, Streisands, Newmans, Baldwins, Penns, Witherspoons, Spielbergs, et al, anymore. They are just actors (or some of them are) and why do they think their viewers/fans give a damm about what they believe politically? They sure do not seem too concerned about accepting multi-million dollar checks for their "craft" yet I do not see them doing much with their money except buying 'bling' and spouting off to any and every camera that is pointed in their general direction. My DVD and CD collection is ever-shrinking too. Whenever I hear that some "artist" that I have purchased in the past thinks that Hitlery is the savior of our republic, another disc goes in the shredder. I used to send the shredded remains to the artist via registered mail, but it hardly seems worth the expense or effort anymore. No matter what you do, they are just not intelligent enough to bother with anymore. And when the appeasers out there allow Iran to build their own nukes, one can only hope when it does go off on American soil, it is right beneath the Hollywood sign.

Disappointed

Very disappointed in Reese Witherspoon. Thought she was a lot smarter than that. I vote with my wallet, and my wallet says no money for liberal or liberal causes.Democrats have become a joke. The Alito hearings were ridiculous. To see Ted Kennedy question Sam Alito about ethics was beyond belief since as far as I know, Sam Alito was not expelled from Harvard for cheating or never left a young girl to drown in his car while he ran home to his wife.What happened to our two party system? From where I sit, it looks like Democrats are going the way of the Whigs. They have become some sort of grotesque caricature and it's only a matter of time that they lose the house, senate, white house and SC. Oh wait.......

Thank you for publishing a list so I know whose movies I will continue to see. Good to see these celebrities are awake. We are suffering throught the worst president in American history, the most surpressed constitutional freedoms and incredible friction with allies and enemies alike. As senator, vp or the prez, Hilary's honest and intellegent approach could give this country a much needed boost.

It becomes harder and harder to watch movies that are not about teenage idiots or african americans or these political assholes. Paul Newman has always been a liberal but he is one of the greatest actors around and the great work he has done with the proceeds of his food lines should not be criticized.

I would really like to know who appointed all these stars God and the fact that they want to tell us who to vote for and what to think and they are the only one smart enough to know anything about the issues.They just don't get it. We don't go to movies for political points of view, we go to be intertained.AND TO THINK THEY DON'T GET IT WHY PEOPLE ARE STAYING AWAY FROM THE MOVIES IN DROVES.ALSO, WE DON'T WANT THEM TO BELITTLE OUR GOD EITHER.
