« Is Dick Cheney the most disreputable person in public life? | Main | Worst newspaper headline ever? »

Is it just my imagination or is it true that almost every entertainer-turned-politician is a Republican? Assuming this is true (and it seems to me that it is) does anyone else find that strange, given that Hollywood is widely considered to be a Liberal hotbed?

Consider these Republicans:
Ronald Reagan
Fred Thompson
Sonny Bono
Clint Eastwood
Arnold Schwarznegger
That guy who was on "Dukes of Hazzard"
That guy who was on "Love Boat"

Who can name an actor/actress who became an elected Democrat? I can't think of one, but then I'm not the sharpest knife in the drawer, so feel free to fill me in.

Could it be that perhaps Hollywood is not as liberal as we've been told?

I'm just thinking out loud - not actually formulating a theory or anything yet.
