Angelina Jolie is no fan of Barack Obama, according to this US Weekly article, here.
Barack Obama does not have Angelina Jolie’s seal of approval.
“She hates him,” a source close to the U.N. goodwill ambassador, 34, tells the new issue of Us Weekly (on newsstands now).
“She’s into education and rehabilitation and thinks Obama is all about welfare and handouts. She thinks Obama is really a socialist in disguise,” adds the source.
Personally I don’t really care what celebrities think about politics, nor do I value their opinions. What they think about the issues really shouldn’t matter.
But here’s why it does matter. Sadly, many Americans are more engaged in celebrity gossip than real issues of the day. We are obsessed with celebrities. Many people are influenced by the opinions held by those in Hollywood. We can pretend that isn’t the case, but that would be wishful thinking, and denial.
So, let’s use this to our advantage. We rarely have such on opportunity. But Jolie has opened the door for us.
What we must do is this: Make sure everyone (especially the impressionable, star-struck among us) find out about this. How can this be done? Well I’ve done the first part, telling you about it here. You can do other things, you are a smart and creative bunch. But here are a few ideas:

p.s. You may wish to share this as an item of discussion at Thanksgiving dinner. However, if your family is anything like mine, politics and holidays never mix well. But if you are brave, go for it… Happy Thanksgiving!
