Occupy Lovitz

I frequently get comments below my blog posts which go something like this:

Why do we care what you think?  Aren’t you just some girl in Alaska?

(Okay, so usually there’s more profanity in the comments I receive!)

In other words, people question my ability to have a political opinion simply because I’m not some pundit living in Washington, DC.  And they’re right – I am just a girl. I don’t eat, breathe, and live politics like some.  I’m actually glad my life doesn’t revolve around political debates and the latest on CSPAN.

However, I am seeing a trend.  I’m beginning to see normal, every day people speaking out against what’s happening in Washington.  You know, people who aren’t supposed to have opinions.  People like me.  People like Jon Lovitz. Have you heard this famous Saturday Night Live alum talk about the President?  It’s a powerful statement against President Obama, and this is coming from a man who actually voted for Obama in 2008.

(Warning: Language!  He uses more F words than you might hear in a year, but it’s nothing new for those of you who have been reading my comment threads lately!)

    My G-d, that is, quite unintentionally, some the best two minutes of improvisational comedy since Lenny Bruce passed away.
    I’m not surprised that Lovitz came to this conclusion some weeks ago. Privately more and more members of Hollywood’s “1% Club” realize that both the State and National Democratic parties are cratering the economy that is the foundation of the entertainment industry that is the lifeblood of their state.
    It was NO ACCIDENT that “Battle L.A.” was filmed in Bobby Jindal’s Louisiana. Disney relocated a lot of its film resources to its plant in Orange County, Florida PRECISELY because Florida’s business and regulatory burdens are so late. As did Universal. You folks are just deceived by the fact that the two entertainment giants built theme parks around their studios.
    The grips, gaffers, prop guys, stunt men, caterers, etc., who lived in Palmdale, Santa Clarita, La Cieniga, and Thousand Oaks can’t afford to live in that state anymore. They have been under relentless attack by the state and federal governments, led by a party their bosses and the highly paid talent support. So they are slowly moving out of the state.
    Lovitz knows all of this. So do a lot of his friends. They just won’t say it out loud because Right Deviationism can get you blacklisted in Hollywood as sure as the old McCarthyite blacklists did during the Red Scare period in the Early Fifties. Maybe Lovitz escapes because he claims he’ll give Obama another chance or something, but I bet he has trouble getting jobs from here on in.

    Bristol, people question your ability to have a political opinion because you are aren’t well informed on the issues, not because of the fact that you are not a pundit living in Washington DC, you would do well to remember that in the future. If Jon Lovitz was dropping F-bombs while criticizing your mother, you would be the first person whining about it not promoting it on your blog. You would be referring to him as a “has been” comedian and criticizing him for using his celebrity status to influence other people, you would call him a HATER! Let’s face the facts Bristol, neither you nor John Lovitz are actually normal every day people…but you are both celebrities. Mr. Lovitz’s statement against President Obama was not powerful, it was totally WEAK! Sorry but any message containing profanity does not deserve to be heard by anyone. You should be ashamed of yourself for promoting such trash, Bristol. This type of offensive language may be nothing new to anyone reading your comment thread, but that doesn’t make it appropriate and it certainly doesn’t make it acceptable either!!! Bristol you are truly delusional!
