Coffee Break

Taking a brief break from the campaign season, I came across a news article devoted to those in the entertainment industry who go against the liberal grain.

CBS Chicago created a slideshow recently of celebrities and other notable Americans who have expressed a clear proclivity towards the GOP. This is not exclusive to movie stars, as it also contains authors, athletes and even a notorious boxing promoter.

I have summarized the list and was surprised by more than a few of the names.
  • Chuck Norris
  • Elisabeth Hasselbeck
  • Kelsey Grammer
  • Jessica Simpson
  • Bruce Willis
  • John Elway
  • Richard Petty
  • Curt Schilling
  • Mel Gibson
  • Dale Earnhardt Jr.
  • Arnold Schwarzenegger
  • Ben Stein
  • Tom Clancy
  • Trace Adkins
  • Angie Harmon
  • Mike Ditka
  • Jon Voight
  • Jack Nicklaus
  • Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson
  • Stephen Baldwin
  • Pat Sajak
  • Susan Lucci
  • Kirk Cameron
  • Dennis Hopper
  • Robert Duvall
  • Clint Eastwood
  • Tom Selleck
  • Don King
  • James Woods
  • Mary Lou Retton
  • Dennis Miller
  • Rick Schroeder
  • Bo Derek
These individuals should be commended for not backing down from positions that are very unpopular and increasingly rare among their colleagues.
