The Politics of Jessica Simpson
Is being snubbed by actress/celebrity/low-grade moron Jessica Simpson a plus or minus?
Well, if you are a republican it is a snub. According to a CNN story the intelligence-challenged Dukes of Hazzard star declined to meet with President Bush to discuss her favorite charity because it is a non-partisan group.
According to the story:
"It just feels wrong," one Simpson insider told Reuters Wednesday, adding that the actress keeps her political views private. "She would love to meet the president and talk about Operation Smile ... but she can't do it at a fund-raiser for the Republican Party."
Maybe she does not realize that meeting the president does not require her to change her political affiliation. She can remain a democrat, independent or whatever. As is pointed out, if U2's Bono can chat up the president then she can too.
The president did not seem to upset, he probably doesn't even know who she is, but I bet Clinton would have thrown a fit if Jessica bailed out on a little face time with him
