Another Washed Up, Has-Been ‘Celebrity’ at WND

Another Washed Up, Has-Been ‘Celebrity’ at WND July 4, 2014

What is it about the religious right and their love of washed up has-been “celebrities” that no one has heard about in decades? Stephen Baldwin, Chuck Norris, Victoria Jackson, Janine Turner, Kirk Cameron…conservatives go weak in the knees over such people. Add Morgan Brittany to the list. Who? Exactly.

About the only thing anyone would remember about her is that she had a role on Dallas 30 years ago. But now she’s writing a column for the Worldnetdaily and they are just so excited to have yet another “celebrity” who can’t even get a spot on Dancing With the Stars on their roster.

Morgan Brittany, actress, activist and PolitiChicks anchorwoman joins WND’s commentary team today as a weekly exclusive columnist…

In 2001, she became one of the first openly outspoken conservatives in Hollywood. She has appeared numerous times on Sean Hannity’s “Great American Panel” for Fox News, Dennis Miller’s television show and many conservative radio programs across the country.

Brittany now spends much of her time devoted to military organizations and other conservative causes. She says her greatest passion is speaking on behalf of the greatness of America. Along with Ann-Marie Murrell and fellow WND columnist Gina Loudon, Brittany is one of the PolitiChicks, “the voice of the conservative woman.” Besides a webcast talk show, the PolitiChicks website features writing from women across America.

Well that’s quite a resume to be taken seriously. I guess Blair from Facts of Life was busy.

    Ooh … ooh … [hand up]. Mr. Brayton! I know what “exclusive” means in WingNutDaily-speak!

    About the only thing anyone would remember about her is that she had a role on Dallas 30 years ago.

    Not true. I remember her from numerous infomercials, and several guest appearances on The Love Boat and Fantasy Island.

    She says her greatest passion is speaking on behalf of the greatness of America.

    Wow, now THAT takes some guts. Seriously, kudos to her on taking such a difficult, dangerous, and unpopular path.

    ___

    Now, actually seriously. Even the syntax of the above is garbled. How is a a military organization a “cause?” And how does one speak on “behalf” of greatness, America’s or anyone else’s?

    As an aside, I’m similarly bugged by the chorus of that Lee Greenwood song. It just makes no sense:

    I’m proud to be an American,

    Where at least I know I’m free.

    The “where” has no referent. “American” is not a location.

    ___

    Back on topic. And finally, “In 2001, she became one of the first openly outspoken conservatives in Hollywood.” Really? Really? John Wayne, Jimmy Stewart, Gary Cooper, Bing Crosby, Ronald Reagan, Charlton Heston? Any of these ring a bell? (And note, I’m only naming old-timers here, ones who were famously conservative long before her role on Dallas, and I’m sure in some cases before she was born. This is just off the top of my head; with a little research I’m sure I could come up with more.)

  • According to Wikipedia, she participated with a March of Dimes Congressional Walk in DC with *gasp* Tip O’Neill! I wonder if the WND knows about this? It might damage her conservative cred…

  • dan4

    As Suzanne Cupito (the name she was born with), she was also a child actress. She was in a few Twilight Zone episodes and Hitchcock’s The Birds.

    tbp1 @ 3:

    John Wayne, Jimmy Stewart, Gary Cooper, Bing Crosby, Ronald Reagan, Charlton Heston?

    What? Those RINOs? I bet everyone of them would have supported Thad Corcoran and his Marxist fellow-travelers, John McCain and Haley Barbour! Saint Ronnie only gets a pass because we can’t remember what he was really like.

  • she became one of the first openly outspoken conservatives in Hollywood.

    LOL!

    My imagination just goes wild over this. I mean, it really looks like they are ripping off the kind of language used for oppressed groups of people. And it makes me wonder if they themselves actually are seriously implying it, and if their audience will take such a thing seriously, and if they THINK their audience will take it seriously if they themselves don’t…I just really wonder. Either way, it’s a hilarious reach.

    Re tbp1 @ #3

    Ronnie the rat was a liberal Democrat up until the early 1950s.

  • shouldbeworking

    John Wayne was a Conservative In Name Only. I remember watching him on the left wing ‘comedy shòw’ Rowan and Martin’s Laugh In. CINO? You bet your sweet bippy!

  • I guess Blair from Facts of Life was busy.

    Sure, but Tootie should be free, after her and The Blowfish broke up.

  • dan4

    @9: Sarcasm or not? It’s hard to tell these days.

  • Ronnie the rat was a liberal Democrat up until he saw a way to do himself a solid with the McCarthyites.

    Where at least I know I’m free.

    The “where” has no referent. “American” is not a location

    Maybe he means he’s proud to be an American currently singing in a location where he’s free, as opposed to being an American in North Korea or something. If he was singing in Canada, he might use the same words.

    The troubling part is the “at least”. Since the first line in the song is “If tomorrow all the things were gone I’d worked for all my life”, it makes sense to still see the bright side of American life, freedom. But to me it points out a major problem with American culture — we don’t do enough as many other Western democracies to have a social safety net to protect against losing everything. Loss of a job and medical issues are things that shouldn’t, but still often do, cost Americans everything they’ve worked for.

    And the world is again at equilibrium because I don’t remember her at all. lol

    Re democommie @ #12

    It is generally believed that Ronnie the rat’s conversion to conservative politics was mostly due to his father in law, his second wife’s father, who was a big conservative poobah in Arizona.

    “In 2001, she became one of the first openly outspoken conservatives in Hollywood. ”

    As above, cons have no idea about their own history.

  • lorn

    Morgan Brittany … she, I assume it is she … ummm … oh … ah-yes … she did that thing … with whatshisname … no, that was the other lady … ummm … Adrienne Barbeau … Morgan Brittany … she …

    I got nothing.

    Who the hell is Morgan Brittany?

    Google to the rescue.

    From:

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Morgan_Brittany

    “At age 18, Cupito changed her name to Morgan Brittany and then appeared with Gene Kelly in his Las Vegas show, Gene Kelly’s Wonderful World of Girls, as a dancer. She then moved to New York City where she modeled for The Ford Modeling Agency, and appeared in several TV commercials and print ads (including a three-year stint as “The Ultra Brite Toothpaste Girl”), and was spokesmodel for brands such as L’Oreal, Ford, Levi’s and Camay. In 1974, she was hired by the Japanese cosmetics company Kanebo to be the “face” of their product “Ireine”, and so moved to Tokyo for two and 1/2 years.[citation needed] In 1976, she returned to the U.S. and restarted her acting career.”

    Which didn’t seem to go very well in my humble opinion.

    The high point of which seems to be a roll in the 1982 TV movie “The Wild Women of Chastity Gulch”

    Not to be confused with the famous eighties porn actress Brittany Morgan. Now she was a babe.

  • dingojack

    Not so much ‘WhirledNutsDaily celebrity’ as ‘WhirledNutsDaily castaway‘…

  • dingojack

    It’s fascinating that WND readers think because some minor celebrity from some eighties sitcom they half remember will spout WND talking-points (for money, let us not forget) that makes them absolutely creditable experts on the subject at hand.

    ‘That person was on TV therefore they must be right’; rather than ‘is their argument any good’?

  • StevoR : Free West Papua, free Tibet, let the Chagossians return!

    @7.brianpansky : “she became one of the first openly outspoken conservatives in Hollywood.”

    Yup. Thing I wonder about is who has ever been a *closetedly* outspoken conservative! 😉

  • @15:

    I see no bar to both of us being right!

  • Oddly enough, not so long ago I read some comments on a thread about George Clooney considering running for office. The nuts came out of the woodwork to claim that Clooney only was doing that because his career is over.

    Let’s see: Two movies in pre-production and set to be released next year; Monument Men (2014), Gravity (2013), 8 (2012), The Descendants and Ides of March (2011), The American (2010). That’s one half of a decade. I haven’t seen any of those movies to know whether they’re good, bod or ugly, but the guy is working.

    Tell me again, who is Brianna Morgan? Or whatever her name is?
