According to Matt Drudge, a group of Hollywood elite will be meeting tomorrow night in an event titled “Hate Bush”:
Top Hollywood activists and intellectuals are planning to gather this week in Beverly Hills for an event billed as ‘Hate Bush,’ the DRUDGE REPORT has learned!
Laurie David [wife of SEINFELD creator Larry David] has sent out invites to the planned Tuesday evening meeting at the Hilton with the bold heading: ‘Hate Bush 12/2 – Event’
The event is being chaired by Harold Ickes, a former Clinton chief of staff, and Ellen Malcolm, who founded Emily’s List. Among the intellectual luminaries invited are: Julia Louis-Dreyfus, whose career stalled out after “Seinfeld” went off the air; Lyn Lear, Norman’s wife; actor Daniel Stern; Marge Tabankin, described by Drudge as “Barbara Streisand’s philanthropic and political guru”; and Heather Thomas, best known as a pin-up model in the 1980s. Also on the list are a number of agents and producers, all of whom are assumably big donors to the Democratic party. The main connecting thread between all of the Hollywood contingent appears to be that none of them have been professionally successful in the past 10 years, which explains why they’re all haters.
Before anyone gets their panties in a bunch, these people have every right to get together for their little hate-in. In fact, I hope that develops as the dominant theme for the next election. “Vote for [insert generic Democrat here], because we really hate George Bush!!” If this puerile, middle-school effort is the best this crowd can generate as a rallying cry, it explains why their professional product stinks and their political product is doomed. Look for the knee-jerk Hollywood reaction of “McCarthyism!!” when this effort gets criticized, as we must remember that free speech is reserved for big movie stars and the sycophants that support/feed off them.
