Happy Mother’s Day to all the Uppity Mothers! (And if you’re so inclined, you can wish Hillary a Happy Mother’s Day too.)
A few celebrity endorsements have come out this week. I say this with full understanding of the roolz: the folks in Hollywood aren’t real people if they like my candidate—only when they like the opposing candidates. Here are some fake people who like Hillary this week.
Helen Mirren: Still for Hill has a post up about Dame Mirren’s endorsement.
George Clooney: pledged to support Hillary Clinton any way he can even though he called her “the most polarizing figure in American politics” in 2008. Apparently, marrying a super-smart woman has done Mr. Clooney a world of good.
Wonder Woman/Lynda Carter: said, “Hillary has my endorsement for all of her life and mine.” She also said, “She can have my Lasso of Truth.”
The time for a woman to serve as our President has come – really, now is the time – and I think the idea of having a former First Lady as the leader of the free world is really quite a marvelous notion. I want Hillary to win. Even though I admire two of the current potential Republican nominees, I have no interest in seeing either of them lead this
This was a hoax, but sounded so believable that Bloomberg fell for it.
This counts as an endorsement in my book:
John Bolton: said Hillary should be disqualified from presidential run.
My favorite endorsement is an old one, from Meryl Streep: who said, “I am am actress but she is the real deal.”
