Normally I am a big fan of the movie star's opinion being broadcast to the world (clothes, shoes, hot spots) - but when it comes to politics - I think celebrities need to think (or hire a personal politicalist) before they speak. Case in point - this video via msn. Come on Matty do your research!
Now I am not making a political move here at all - in fact, I don't really want to announce to the world certain things - how much money I make, how often the hanky panky happens, how much my house costs and who gets my vote. But when someone gets in front of a video camera and says that it is like a "really bad Disney movie" that a woman who is a Governor of Alaska could possibly be President of the US one day, I gotta speak up. He said that he doesn't know alot about the gal - and Matty, all you gotta do is GOOGLE.
Oh and just for reference - here are a bunch of us regular people, "hockey moms" if you will, that were governors and turned out to be poll ranked by the Wall Street Journal in 2005 as the top 15 Presidents ever:
- Ronald Reagan - Governor of California
- Franklin D. Roosevelt - Governor of New York
- Thomas Jefferson - Governor of Virginia
- Theodore Roosevelt - Governor of New York
- Woodrow Wilson - Governor of New Jersey
- Grover Cleveland - Governor of New York
- James K Polk - Governor of Tennessee
- William McKinley - Governor of Ohio
So my Sexiest Man Alive - research doesn't hurt anyone. In fact it might just cement your personal presidential choice a little bit further. But here's a tip - just like you would hire a stylist - do a bit of serious study or hire a college kid to do it. Cause I can bet your bottom dollar that when it is time to stroll the red carpet that you don't make your clothing choices without knowing what's up - so the same applies in politics. And I bet that college kid needs the cash :)
