for Shrub in 2000 and plans to do so again this year. I was watching a Bob Costas show on HBO this morning when he said that. Hopper also mentioned that his wife is a liberal Democrat.

Dennis, you sold out!

1. maybe he didn't sell out, but he's an actor who happened to
Maybe he didn't sell out, but he's an actor who happened to play a character in "Easy Rider" who probably wouldn't vote Republican.

2. He was a Reaganite, too.
So, if I remember correctly (and I'm perfectly willing to admit I may not be) was/is James Woods. If he sold out, in other words, it was long, long ago.

3. Maybe he just burned up too many brain cells
But I do find it surprising that he's a conservative.

5. That's why he finds GWB a kindred spirit
Between the two of them they have at least one functioning brain cell!

6. Franken recounts
a bizarre moment in Big Fat Idiot when he and Newt Gingrich bumped into Hopper and he turned into a gushing fool, telling Newt that he was a "great, great man" doing "great, great things" for the country.

7. Wait, wasn't that what Hopper's character, the photo-
...journalist in the movie "Apocalypse Now" said about the renegade colonel that Martin Sheen was sent to assassinate? :freak:

Ol' Dennis was flashing.

On edit: Gringrich told Hopper he loved Blue Velvet. Al said he felt like he was in Blue Velvet :)

10. What are they gonna say about him?
What are they gonna say? That he was a kind man? That he was a wise man? That he had plans? That he had wisdom? Bullshit, man!
