It's amusing when conservatives mock liberals for having actors as spokesmen, when there is a long history of actors going into politics. You know who I am talking about.
Still, I wonder if the left has gone over the breach in elevating comedians to heroes, or pining for ersatz presidents over real contenders.
Martin Sheen, Geena Davis, Steven Colbert are fakes, people, and at least Davis and Colbert seem to still know that they are fakes. It might be important at some point to be able to tell the difference. Because when we fail to delineate between reality and fantasy, we end with just about what we have now.
