  • A Celebrity President

    Ronnie was an actor who did it but, starring in Bedtime For Bonzo, doesn't exactly qualify as a great celebrity who became President. Arnie is a Nazi at birth and heart so he's (lawfully) out of the running.

    Thinking of 'characters' that actors play ('play' being the operative word) who would make a good president during these times?

    In my mind, I rather like Michael Corleone kicking arse there.

    Firstly I think our economy would be flourishing and secondly I think our enemies would be scared shiteless. Bin Laden would have been wacked a long time ago and the French and Germans would have been involved in Iraq, having accepted an 'offer they couldn't refuse.'

    I'd like to see Raymond Babbit (Hoffman from "Rainman")...oh, wait...that's kinda what we've already got...
    . . . and to tell you this: I work with gays, have friends who are gay, go to church with gays. Most of them are aware that I believe that homosexual behavior is sin. Some of them actually agree. Most don't. It's OK . . . because they also know or at least have been made aware of my multitude of sins: adulterous heart, lustful and covetous behavior, wicked pride, angry spirit . . . do I need to go on?

      Martin Sheen or Bill Maher.

      I just watched Real time with Bill Maher, and he is awesome.

                How about Joe Don Baker who starred as Buford Pusser in Walking Tall? This guy knew how to kick ass and take names. His weapon of choice? A baseball bat!

                Anyone else remember thsi old movie where Tennessee sheriff Buford Pusser sets out to rid his community of organized crime, prostitution, and gambling, only to incite a vicious crime war. Based on real events, this extremely violent film went on to huge boxoffice success, spawning a sequel and a television series.

                The Rock is going to star in a remake. I don't know how much of actor he is but if this movie is a good as the original it should do pretty well at the box office.

                  I'd take President Palmer from 24 long before I'd take Martin Sheen.
                  When you say to your neighbor, "We're having a loud party on Saturday night if that's alright with you," what you really mean is, "We're having a loud party on Saturday night."

                        Letterman had a good line about Harrison Ford as president when Clinton was in office. He said Ford was a kick-ass president instead of a grab-ass president. But Ally McBeal as first lady? Do we need another first lady who is an attorney with a firm who does questionable things?
