Movie actors, anyone?Submitted by Kevin Tuma on Wed, 11/12/2008 - 16:18
I'm convinced at this writing we are desperate for a presidential candidate and willing to accept almost anything---as long as it's someone who has a political resume.
What about the opposite tack? Running a political newbie for office who is a world famous celebrity? Because frankly I don't see any career politicians in the public eye who look like they could wake the voters, let alone the brain-dead mainstream media, from a deep slumber.
The name Jesse Ventura keeps coming up. What political resume does Ventura have? He was governor of Minnesota. What political resume did he have before that? None. He was a movie actor and ex-wrestler.
What political resume did Schwarzenegger have before he became governor? None. He was a movie actor and ex-bodybuilder.
What political resume did Reagan have before he became governor? None. He was a movie actor, and president of the Screen Actors Guild.
At least with governor, it seems to be an open door.
There are stars out there who are not members of the Hollywood Left.
