I love stories about Hollywood conservatives. I guess it is because I am such a big television and movie fan and hate to think of the money I contribute to the industry through ticket sales ending up as donations to liberal politicians. I enjoyed reading the list of those expected to attend an event for John McCain next week.
As Democrats celebrate in Denver next week, Republican presumptive presidential nominee Sen. John McCain will be trying to fire up some star power of his own by collecting checks and support from conservatives in Hollywood.
Mr. McCain will attend a fundraiser at the Beverly Hilton on Monday, the day the Democrats’ convention opens,bringing together top leaders from the Los Angeles business and entertainment communities, according to an invitation for the event obtained by The Washington Times.
Show business publication Variety reported that Angie Harmon, David Zucker, Jon Cryer, Lionel Chetwynd, Craig T. Nelson, Jon Voight, Craig Haffner and Robert Duvall are among those expected to attend.
For more on conservatives in Hollywood, read John Nolte’s piece on David Zucker’s upcoming An American Carol movie. More on conservative Hollywood at Dirty Harry’s Place and at Libertas (now on hiatus, but there is still plenty of current stuff there to check out).
