Insanity! Dems Turn To Hollywood To Spread Message…..
Insanity! Dems Turn To Hollywood To Spread Message….. Again, After it Failed Spectacularly In 2016
Insanity: Doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result.
Having watched their 13 point lead in generic polling heading into the mid-term elections, dwindle down to single digits, with House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi producing gaffe and gaffe, showing how disconnected from the voters their party is, Democrats have now come up with a brilliant (yes, that is snark) idea.
Politico announced the “new” strategy on June 11, 2018: “The Democratic National Committee and members of Congress are turning to Hollywood for help with voter turnout and messaging ahead of the midterm elections and 2020 presidential campaign, quietly consulting with a group of actors, writers and producers here.”
What is the “message?” Well Politico’s sub-header says it all, “We lost to an insane person.”
The same people who applauded Robert DeNiro recently for standing on stage at one their never-ending award shows and screamed “F*ck Trump,” before raising his fists into the air, with people like MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough saying those that applauded were “unwittingly helping the president get re-elected.“
The same people that supported Samantha Bee, another Hollywood favorite, calling Ivanka Trump a “feckless C*nt,” just to see two-thirds of her advertisers pull out of her show, Full Frontal.” Oh, and her ratings are free-falling.
Hollywood itself is seeing the same type of free-fall, with movie-going attendance in 2017 hitting a 25 year low.
If Hollywood’s recent antics and the backlash against them for it, wasn’t enough to think that perhaps it isn’t the wisest choice to depend on celebrities and their “fame” to push a political party’s messaging and drive for voter registration, then recent history should have done so.
