6. Hollywood royalty show us the error of our small-minded ways
It’s a rampant illness infecting California’s “real” capital city (Hollywood): From the supremely annoying “The More You Know” campaign on NBC in which two-bit TV actors pontificate on all matters moral, to the hags of The View talk show who are always up for spreading both their stupidity and their bigotry… from grand pronouncements about life and meaning and the elegance of Obama from Actors Who Win Awards, to the sucker punch insults against conservatives that pepper our movies and television (speaking of which, see here for your warning about the next big condescending insult from the Left coming to you after you shell out perfectly good money to enjoy a movie, you fool!)
Anyway, this illness that infects personages both large and small in the Hollywood food chain – let’s call it Self Delusional Narcissism Syndrome, aka Royalty Disorder. These folks think they are better than everyone else. They have apparently confused better looking (I’m not talking about you, Sean Penn) with smarter, more interesting, and more knowledgeable. None of which apply, my star-studded friends, to most of you.
But that doesn’t stop them, does it, from opening their artificially-whitened teeth and blathering on about all things political and economic. Irony and hypocrisy abound. Mega-million dollar movie star Ben Affleck thinks CEO’s shouldn’t make so much money. Uh-huh. So the businessman who’s put in 70-hour work weeks for 20 years doesn’t deserve his salary, but you, Prince Ben, have earned the right to pull down seven figures for pretending (and not that convincingly) to be a bank robber. Shoot, my son did that when he was 5, and he was a whole lot cuter than you are when you’re whining about corporate greed, while cashing big ol’ checks from some of California’s most illustrious entertainment conglomerates.
These people don’t just think they’re the royalty of California – they think they’re the royalty of the world, and they’ve got the egos to prove it. For the most part, they’re far too self-absorbed to even understand their own idiocy. Like the screenwriter of the hit movie The Social Network, who not only suffers from the aforementioned Royalty Disorder, but he’s got a raging case of PDS (Palin Derangement Syndrome) as well.
So, California is where these people do most of their dirty deeds. You’re welcome, America!
