Actor and director Tim Robbins praises Edwards

IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) -- Actor and film director Tim Robbins is backing Democratic presidential candidate John Edwards. Robbins joked yesterday that he's not Oprah, as he backed the former North Carolina senator in a packed library auditorium in Iowa City. Oprah Winfrey toured three states last weekend pushing Barack Obama. Robbins's film credits include "Mystic River," "Bull Durham" and "The Shawshank Redemption." Robbins says Edwards has been overlooked as the media focus on the clash between Hillary Clinton and Obama. Robbins is not the only help Edwards expects. Kevin Bacon is to join Edwards later this week. Singer-song writers Jackson Browne and Bonnie Raitt are to perform at Edwards' town meetings in New Hampshire next week. Edwards is on an eight-day bus tour through Iowa. (Copyright 2007 by The Associated Press. All Rights Reserved.)

They can empty each others wallets to pay the way for those that didn't work hard in school, don't have an education and live off our taxes. johnny red can fix it all!

Loved Bull Durham

But if it was a movie that came out today I think I would rather NOT see it because of what this Tim Robbins has said in the name of politics. Far Left libs are a dime a dozen. Glad he is standing with Edwards. They deserve each other.

...and Sean Penn likes Hugo Chavez.

All this proves is that these Left-wing Hollywood nutjobs are too dim to realize that Edwards wants to end poverty using their wallets. But gee, they could give away their millions NOW, if they had a mind to, couldn't they? No, they need a Socialist government taking their money. Why would any millionaire snuggle up to Comrade Edwards? A successful person voting for a Democrat is identical to a woman inviting a known rapist home for a few drinks. They JAVE to know what's coming!

Crude example

Crude example

But very, very accurate!

Why would anyone in their right mind vote for someone who has promised to put the screws to them? Truth is more important than civility. The only difference between John Edwards and the thug on the corner who wants to take your wallet is the $400 haircut.
