    Why do people think that it’s at all significant who a movie star/musician/celebrity supports in an election?

    Not even remotely about Georgia politics. More suitable for the political column in US Magazine.

    I see now. We could win in Iraq, stop the global rise in oil prices, make terrorists love us, and lower unemployment to 2 percent if we would only put the Drama majors in charge.

    What have we been thinking all these years?

  4. Bill Simon says:

    Well…(ahem! ahem!)…in the world of liberal arts, “drama majors” aren’t that much different from “poly-sci Majors,” Clint.

    As a matter of fact…one could safely say that DRAMA is pretty much what makes all you poly-sci majors click. 🙂

  5. heroV says:

    Not true, Bill. Unlike useless poly-sci majors, at least drama majors actually learn a trade.

  6. Chris says:

    Actually, when Drama majors ply their trade 99% of the time they aren’t trampling on my rights or stealing my money to do so.

    “Actually, when Drama majors ply their trade 99% of the time they aren’t trampling on my rights or stealing my money to do so.”

    The other 1% is when they automatically add an 18% gratuity to the bill.

    Because the large majority of our society is glued to a flat screen most of the time and thinks the people seen there represent the height of success in life. The typical couch potato can’t think for himself and makes decisions based on what or who is most appealing at a certain moment. If a candidate could get Tiger Woods and Jessica Alba to endorse him and run ads for him in late October, he’d win in a landslide.

  9. Demonbeck says:

    Actually, Bill “poly-sci” isn’t a liberal art. “Poly-sci” majors get B.S. degrees. Politics and Drama majors get B.A. degrees, which is a different type of BS.

  10. heroV says:

    Demonbeck, that’s not accurate. Many universities confer a Bachelor of Arts in political science, and not a Bachelor of Science.
