If there's one class of people that consistently draws the ire of the Republican party, it's celebrities. Perhaps mindful of the fact that all the cool kids in Hollywood vote Democrat, the GOP is forever on the attack against celebrities, their political views, and all they represent, and John McCain's attention-getting "Celebrity" ad is just the latest example. Yessir, there's nothing the Republican party hates more than celebrities.
Oh wait, THEY TOTALLY DON'T, because they keep running them for office all the freakin' time. A guided tour of the GOP's celebrity worship, after the jump:
