Well JD I just think that these people are fed so much adulation that they may not even realize that half of their audience doesn't hold the same views they do. Therefore they don't understand what all the fuss is about when someone takes issue with what they say.

You have to remember as well that many of them aren't very bright or well educated. They can do what they do, but the can't do anything else.

Agreed. But even the smart ones have "handlers", so you would think they would discuss "hot topics" prior to getting up on the soapbox.

A classic example for me, since I live in the Pacific Northwest, is the band Pearl Jam and that idiot Eddie Vetter. They burst on the scene with the totally overblown "Grunge" movement, and then this idiot starts to take every opportunity to run down the government, the politicians on the Right and pretty much anything else that flutters through his little brain. It's to the point where everyone around here can't stand them any longer because of their mouth piece front man, and this was a band that literally could have run for office back in the day and won just based on all the youth vote.

I just never understood alienating half, or more, of your audience - but then again I don't have a fan base blowing sunshine up my arse every waking moment of every day.

Along the same subject, a little known Hollywood star, James Earl Jones is a pro-gunner. He took home his M1 grand and his M1911a1 when he left the Military and still has them today. Though his wife is anti-gun they still get along.
