Most of the “stars” at this year’s Academy Awards were curiously shy about talking politics. Why? Could it be that in the past few years they’ve gotten exactly what they begged for and now realize it ain’t so great?

PETA activist James Cromwell and uber hypocrite Michael Moore didn’t disappoint, however.

I’m partial to the actress whose response to the gas price question was “they’re way higher in Europe, I can tell you.” Obama should adopt that as a talking point and see how it works out:

    Obama's only defense of his policies is to claim that things would have been better without them, so he might very well use the little point about gas prices being higher in Europe.

    There may be a glimmer of hope here. The notion politicians have that they have to act like Democrats to get elected needs to be gotten rid of. Acting like Democrats should be the kiss of death.

    That's the excuse of the left "they're way higher in Europe, so shut up and eat your peas." Unless of course a republican is in office, then they want his head.

    Perzactly. Not only did the Professional Left not want to discuss political matters, clearly they were visibly uncomfortable even considering it. If I were Obama ( oh, excuse me, NOT Obama "The President of the United States"! ) I'd be very VERY worried!

    Only reluctant, guarded 'support'. Now all we need is a H'wood video series on what they intend to do after Nov. to get the country BACK on track! Maybe when Demi gets out of re-hab..?

    What a difference a few years and the party in charge makes !

    I`m thinking of Cheech and Chong from the `70s: "Tired of the steady drip, drip, drip of irony ? Time to call Political Rooter !"

    “they’re way higher in Europe…"

    Except for Willie Nelson, of course.

    Considering the political stances of most California liberals is driving the entertainment industry out of California and the continually sagging poll numbers of their chosen Mesiah, I am not too surprised that many stars decided not to talk politics.

    And it only took them what, 10 or 11 years to begin to get a clue ?

    For many of the Hollywood types that would be considered a rapid learning curve.

    Remember what grandma used to say:

    “If you can’t say anything nice (about your candidate), don’t say anything at all.”

    They’re all wishing they could’ve thought of at least ONE something to say.

    The little clip from John Wayne was perfectly positioned. Funniest part of the whole video.

    O/T – but I see Urkel is going to be on Dancing With the Stars. Oh, I'm sorry. The real Urkel is dancing on the show. I thought Ozero was looking for some more props after his singing gigs.

    I saw that earlier and thought, "Oh gee, there`s 3 of `em !"

    I checked out the list of "Celebrity Vegetarians" and was a bit surprised to see Geezer Butler there, but the rest of the list is pretty much what I'd expect.

    And I've got one question for Forest Whitaker:

    If you're really a vegetarian, how come you're still such a fat f*ck?

    Geezer gave up meat when he saw Ozzie bite the head off a bat.
