Fair and Balanced
In the wake of David Mamet's conversion from "brain-dead liberalism", conservative Hollywood writer Roger Simon is calling on a few fellow conservatives to help balance the scale.
"Really," Simon is quoted as saying, "this is just unfair. When someone of David's stature switches sides, it throws the whole Hollywood eco-system out of whack. What's worse, it can cause a ripple effect. I mean, David may be worth 20 Matt Damon's, but what if someone like Jack or Barbra saw the light? The results would be catastrophic. We might even have a pro-Iraq movie in theaters by next summer!"
Simon is asking fellow Hollywood conservatives Ron Silver, Andrew Klavan and others to join him in re-embracing liberalism, saying "It's the least we can do."
