    ...the same argument the right uses against Hollywood celebrities voicing their opinions? Not that the poster is exactly saying that they disagree with public figures/celebrities speaking out (see: Oprah Winfrey), but they have as much right as anyone else to voice their views, they just have a larger platform.

    The right doesn't like to have dissenting voices attack their power base. So, everyone in Hollywood should shut up right?

    Wonder what we'll see in the post Oscar diaries? Jon Stewart sucks because he made an Obama joke! No! He sucks because he made a Clinton joke!

    •  It's the venue I object to. (0+ / 0-)

      Everyone should use their voice to support their candidate..beit on a blog or writing letters to the Editor or (if you are one) using celebrity status.
      Knock yourself out but do it on your own time not on a non-political show.

        So this means that Jon Stewart shouldn't make political jokes at the Oscars, only on his show?

        And, to be fair, SNL has always had political humor.

        •  No. Do the Obama Cult skit or a Hillary skit (0+ / 0-)

          Just don't endorse on a national TeeVee show. If Jon Stewart comes out tonight and urges ppl to vote for Obama in the upcoming primaries, I think there would be one or two objections.
