On his radio show today, an outraged Rush Limbaugh challenged "bird-brain" actress and Obama Co-Chair Eva Longoria for her pro-Obama efforts (which have included very demeaning, anti-women tweets -- rebelled against by the likes of Michelle Malkin).
Limbaugh employed sharp-tongued humor to say Longoria is a "groupie" activist who goes from one sports star to the next.
"Hulk Hogan's available," said Rush. "I heard that." Hogan is suing a neighbor over a sex tape.
Rush's point, I think, is that Longoria is not a serious, thoughtful person, and that she is trading on her looks and star power to advance her political cause.
Longoria may be learning that if one is to become publicly involved in politics, a) being educated and informed is vital, b) you must expect counter critique, especially if you demonize others, and c) outside of the Hollywood bubble, many intelligent, informed, creative, and caring people have concluded Obama is a disaster for America.
Intelligent, informed, creative, and caring people are equally concerned that the liberal Hollywood bubble is also a disaster for human creativity and proper rebellion against the status quo.
Whether America in the main, or Hollywood in the specific, you cannot abandon the rules for freedom and sustain a society of freedom.
If and when Longoria arrives at a social or political position not consistent with Hollywood elites, let her then voice that position and see how those elites react. I double-dare say, if Longoria were, as a thought experiment, to show an openness to other voices, she might be surprised at the reception she receives from her Beverly Hills posse.
It's counterintuitive but true: Establishment Hollywood fears real rebels.
Come on, Eva. Be a rebel. Discover who your real friends are.
