Hollywood Drags Mitt Romney Choosing Paul Ryan As VP
Today's news of Mitt Romney's vice presidential pick, Wisconsin Rep. Paul Ryan. Hollywood to react to today's news of Mitt Romney's vice presidential pick, Wisconsin Rep. Paul Ryan. Given Hollywood's liberal bend, it's not surprising that the reaction was largely negative (save for conservative news magnate Rupert Murdoch).
Here's a sampling of what the stars had to say via Twitter:
Eva Longoria: "Romney's VP pick voted against equal pay for women and repeal of Don't Ask, Don't Tell. We can't go backward."
Olivia Wilde: "Two R's won't make it right. Romney/Ryan are Wrong for America."
Jared Leto: "Today Mitt Romney picked Paul Ryan, who wants to cut Pell Grant scholarships for nearly 10 million students!"
Michael Ian Black: "Romney/Ryan = same initials as Ronald Reagan. THINK ABOUT IT!!!"
Andy Richter: "I think saying "worst recovery in 70 years" is kinda cute. Doesn't at all beg the phrase "worst recession in 70 years."
Kal Penn: "This is awful. I was hoping it would be Jindal so I could play him in a HBO movie"
Michael Moore: "Channeling Bush, war supporters/military dodgers Romney and Ryan insult those who served by using battleship as their prop."
Rupert Murdoch: "Thank God! Now we might have a real election on the great issues of the day. Paul Ryan almost perfect choice."
Russell Simmons: "MItt Romney and Paul Ryan, two men who will destroy our people..."
C'mon ATRLers,you know better than the 2 Rs of Regression.(I'm NOT speaking for all ATRLers w/ this banner btw.)
Not even shading anyone in particular, but I'm convinced if you put a green wig and cute pumps on an inanimate object and gave it one Top 40 Dr. Luke or RedOne single, you will see threads praising and stanning for it, comparing it to Michael Jackson and how they're slayed by its good personality
