Giving a whole new meaning to the term "star wars", Rosanne Barr goes on the rampage against Hollywood celebrities because of their political beliefs.
Roseanne Barr calls Angleina Jolie the "evil spawn" of Jon Voight, calls Brad Pitt "vacuous" and calls Voight a "frightened little girl in a pink ballet tutu", for not backing Barack Obama. Then Barr announces her support for Cynthia Mckinney.
As reported by MSNBC, Barr lashes out at Jon Voight because of his opinion editorial in the Washington Times, which declared that he believed that Barack Obama was a socialist that could ruin America if elected.
Roseanne Barr runs her own blog called Rosanne World and evidently she has been ranting for some time about the upcoming November presidential elections.
In those rants she declares that Jon Voight is a frightened little girl in a pink ballet tutu who acts like Obama just wandered in from the rain forest with a bone thru his nose and a communist pamphlet in his loincloth."
She calls Angelina Jolie the "evil spawn" of Voight and refers to Brad Pitt as "vacuous".
What does she have against these Hollywood celebrities?
They are not supporting Barack Obama.
Voight made his feelings and reasoning publicly clear in an opinion editorial for the Washington Times, but as Showbiz Spy reports, Jolie and Pitt have both said they have not made their decisions yet on who they will support in the presidential elections.
According to Jolie, "I am waiting to see the commitments they will make on issues like international justice, refugees and how to address the needs of children in crisis around the world"
Barr takes specific aim at Jolie and Pitt regarding their children, by saying, "Angelina Jolie and her vacuous hubby Brad Pitt make about forty million dollars a year in violent psychopathic movies and give away three of it to starving children trying to look as if they give a crap about humanity as they spit out more dunces that will consume more than their fair share and wreck the earth even more."
These words, these attacks on other celebrities for their political beliefs, was clear when Jeffrey Wells, who runs the movie and pop culture website Hollywood-Elsewhere.com, suggested what many are interpreting as "blacklisting" Voight because of his criticisms about Obama in the opinion editorial.
The ironic thing about Barr's personal attacks against celebrities not supporting Obama, is that her latest blog posting declares her support for a presidential candidate..... Cynthia Mckinney, the Green Party's official candidate.
Her most recent piece asserts that the Democrats want to lose "and therefore did not fully vet the candidate they shoved down everyone's throat", referring to Obama.
She goes to claim that she was the "first blogger" to blog about Obama's abortion vote, she then refers to Michelle Obama saying that 'they" have a tape of Michelle Obama defending "live birth abortions".
I am the first blogger to blog about Obama's abortion vote and how it would become the october surprise...they have michelle obama on tape defending live birth abortion, and raising money for it too...(they called this "the whitey" tape, but its far better than just that kind of a boring thing...she is on tape defending sucking the brains out of babies who live through late term abortions). This is the greatest gift pelosi and dean can give to the republicans they work for. It took alot of doing in order to throw this election to the republicans after iraq, katrina, and the economy, but pelosi and dean found a way!
Going through her blog, I find many instances of her attacking various people, but her criticisms of other stars for daring not to vote for Barack Obama at the same time explaining why she won't vote for Barack Obama, almost seem contradictory in nature.
Stars Wars has begun, but it doesn't have those cute little robots and it doesn't seem to be rated PG any longer.

John McCain's answer on abortion at the Saddleback Church was clear and concise and to remind everyone of what it was, it is below.
Abortion: Warren's question was: At what point does a baby get human rights in your view?
Keep that in mind as you read the rest.....
Yesterday The Politico announced an exclusive about how John McCain would be announcing his VP choice on his birthday, which we discussed here, and they floated the names of the choices.
Choices: Mitt Romney, Tim Pawlenty, Tom Ridge and Joseph I. Lieberman.
Today we see The Corner report which states that John McCain's campaign has been "calling key state GOP officials around the country the last couple of days and sounding them out about the consequences of a pro-choice VP pick."
This is where the Mind Games come in.
Lieberman has given up quite a bit to back John McCain and that type of loyalty doesn't come often but given McCain's clear and concise answer to the question of abortion in his interview with warren at the Saddleback Church, I do not think that McCain who has worked hard to unite his base, would choose Lieberman as VP.
He can show Lieberman the same type of loyalty by putting him in the administration or giving him a key cabinet position.
Floating a pro-choice candidate idea is nothing more than a mind game if McCain meant what he said in his interview, float it, then listen to the collective sigh of relief when he picks someone more in line with the conservative base, thereby uniting the remaining part of the party behind him by election day.
Face it, those "feeler" calls would not have went out if it wasn't expected and dare I say, desired, that word would spread and news would leak.
McCain has been in the game long enough to know that if not The Corner, then some other outlet would make it clear that he was putting out "feelers" about a pro-choice candidate.
The obvious choice here should be between Mitt Romney and Tim Pawlenty, Romney more recent in pro-life stance, but with Romney comes a good shot at taking Michigan in the November elections.
Tim Pawlenty, on the other hand has had his name floated about for a while now, but many simply do not recognize him or his name as visibly as Romney because of the primaries between him and McCain.
If McCain is smart, he will keep the speculation alive until he announces, keep hardcore conservatives on the edge of their seat, then he will choose Mitt Romney, knowing full well that the collective sigh of relief over his not choosing Lieberman or Ridge, will overtake the concerns of those not 100 percent in favor of Romney.

The Politico has an exclusive saying that preliminary plans are set for John Mccain to announce his VP on the 29th, a day after Obama gives his acceptance speech which will limit the weekend news coverage and perhaps the bounce that Obama's campaign is expecting after he is crowned the official Democratic nominee. (although if the bounce is anything like when Hillary Clinton suspended her campaign or after his Berlin speech, then it won't be much to worry about anyway)
Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) plans to celebrate his 72nd birthday on Aug. 29 by naming his running mate at a huge rally in the battleground state of Ohio, Republican sources said.
No one is ruling out the fact that McCain can change his mind about the date of the announcement because as they put it, "McCain views this as the one decision that he has total, utter, nonnegotiable control over."
This would be a very smart move on McCain's part, he would control the news coverage for the weekend before the Republican National Convention and then have the following week of the convention as well.
With all the chaos expected for the Democratic National Convention, with anti-war protesters, pro-troop supporters planning an event, Hillary Clinton supporters with their parade and rally, recreate 68 with their nonsense and even more, the coverage will not be pure Obama anyway for the Democratic convention.
John McCain can nab the weekend and Obama's whole celebration will be short and bittersweet since much attention will be focused on Clinton, the protests, security, those razor wire fences to house the animals....um... Code Pink, recreate 68 protesters, I mean.
