I don't pay much attention to the mudslinging that takes up much of the primary season, mainly because I'm not registered as a Republican or a Democrat. So I don't really care who wins the primaries. Once they're over and we're down to one on each side (and Ralph Nader), I'll start paying more attention...assuming there isn't a really good Celebreality show on VH-1 that takes up a lot of my time next year.
Which brings me to my point (it's so rare that I have a point here that I will understand if you choose to stop here). With Oprah lending her support to Barack Obama and word of the "Chuck Norris factor" in Iowa, it is clear that celebrities--as should rightfully be the case--will be playing a big part in deciding the next President of the United States. And I want to make sure that I'm aware of the latest in celebrity presidential endorsements. So, I have decided to compile a list of 15 (lucky number) celebrities whose political opinions will need to be declared before I decide who I want in the White House in January 2009. And here is that list:
Jon Brennan from the second season of "The Real World"
Corey Haim (Canadian, but I will still need to know)
Hank Williams Jr.
Freddy "Boom Boom" Cannon
If anybody knows which candidate any of the above have decided to back, please let me know. There's still plenty of time, but I want to get a good head start on this and really give this important endeavor the attention it deserves.
The future of our country may depend on it.
