My point is, if someone got celebrity status for doing ABC, then they should get to testify as an expert in ABC. If someone became an expert by dancing with some stars, they should not be a source we go to for knowledge about ABC.
So we have Chris Rock telling us Obama is our daddy. I am sorry, I know who my dad is. It is NOT Obama. We have Jessica Alba telling us how bad guns are. What the hell do they know about guns, or who my daddy is?
If they brought in hunter, shooter, cops, hell even criminals....
In the entertainment world, there is a distinct advantage for following the liberal template.......it serves to advance careers of those who depend on acceptance in those circles for getting work in their field.
In the case of Bruce Willis, he has evolved far beyond the need for acceptance by his peer group. He may have needed that "ladder to success" at one time, but has evolved to the point where he doesn't need to walk the line to find work......and, that is why he has more credibility than other entertainers who may (or may not) be motivated by the established route to success.
I think I'm beginning to see why you, RWBlue, might be influenced by your not being accepted to speak before congress......you did try, and you didn't speak. I probably wouldn't be accepted either. It's likely that it's not the congress that influenced your even hearing of Willis, Rock, or Alba........but, the MSM had more to do with that than congress did.........
