Who's Got the "White Trash" Vote Again?

In addition to the vacuous, dim-witted and out-of-touch celebrity one, I mean. If I were McCain-Palin, I'd be hoping for more "anti-endorsements" like this! Keep talking, Lindsay: You and the Hollywood crowd are just stoking the fires of middle America's genuine love and affection for the "Hockey Mom" from Alaska. By the way, didn't your mother ever teach you it's impolite to punch people for no apparent reason?

UPDATE: Andrew Breitbart on Bad Will Hunting:

Matt Damon is scared. Last week his e-mail runneth over with nasty Sarah Palin rumors. And before he could get his facts straight, the "Bourne" film series star and Barack Obama supporter spread false fears in a hysterical video that immediately went viral on the Internet.

"I want to know if she thinks dinosaurs were here 4,000 years ago or if she banned books or tried to ban books," Mr. Damon raged to the Associated Press. "I mean - you know, we can't - we can't have that."

Mrs. Palin has neither pushed for creationism in Alaska schools nor moved to ban a single book in Wasilla. Yet the "Ocean's 14" ensemble is currently unable to get through another smarmy scene for fear that a John McCain presidency will lead to an evangelical Christian theocracy and catastrophic artistic oppression.

The sad fact is that actual artistic oppression - book banning in its many modern forms - is a matter of course in the entertainment industry, especially when the underlying product is declared politically incorrect or runs contrary to the interests of Hollywood's political altar, the Democratic Party.

Breitbart makes some crucial points concerning real censorship -- Hollywood's capitulation to the Council on American Islamic Relations to change the radical Islamist villians of Tom Clancy's "The Sum of all Fears" to white supremicists; refusal to develop a film depicting the brutal murder of Theo Van Gogh for daring to produce the movie "Submission," a realistic portrayal of the abuses suffered by Muslim women; and stonewalling of the ABC-Disney film "The Path to 9/11." It's a brilliant column that takes Hollywood to task for it's stunning hypocrisy, which -- combined with the sheer stupidity of most celebs -- certainly explains their breathless support for Obama and the Democrats.
