Celebrities Love The Dems!

9/20/2006 3:13 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

In case you haven't noticed... it's election time. And when it's election time, it's also time for the stars to pull out their checkbooks to make donations to their pet candidates or causes. So just who are the stars that are willing to shell out their hard earned money?
Jessica Alba and Matt Damon

Barbra Streisand donated a total of $34,000 to Democratic candidates, $2000 of that going towards US Senate candidate Amy Klobuchar. Klobuchar is running for an open Senate seat not in California where Babs lives, but in Minnesota. Matt Damon contributed nearly $30,000 to Democratic candidates, and Rosie O'Donnell and Susan Sarandon also gave money to those running on a Democratic ticket. Even Jessica Alba got into the campaign finance game with her $600 donation to Tennessee Senate candidate Harold Ford.

Celebs seem to be backing, for the most part, Democratic candidates. So who is the candidate that has received the most help from Hollywood this election year? You guessed it... the esteemed Senator from New York Hillary Rodham Clinton.

Can anyone explain to me the relationship between democrats and wealthy movie stars. I would just figure the wealthy would just automatically want to sidle up to republicans to keep their almight dollar. Anyone? Anyone?

Of course the mostly liberal celebrities will give their money to those lowlife Democrats. with support like Rosie, Sarandon, and Streisand, they don't have a prayer because those obnoxious celebrities will sway any normal person AGAINST their candidates.

WHAT IS THE RUSH    

THE STARS CAN'T THINK FOR THEMSELVES, BECAUSE THEY ARE ALL SHEEP. NO BACKBONE, HAVE TO RUN WITH THE PACK IN CLOTHES, DIETS AND RESTURANTS. SO NO SURPRISE THEY ALL HUDDLE TOGETHER COME ELECTION TIME, THEY ARE ALL A PHONEY BUNCH, AND THEIR SUPPORT MEANS NOTHING TO ME. AFRAID IF THEY GO TO THE OTHER SIDE THEY WON'T WORK, GET A SPINE.

Most Celebrities are registered democrats, because the overriding trait they have in common (celebs and democrats) is they are both so totally and irrevocably out of touch with reality it is frightening.

Movie stars have to go against the norm. Like their shoes, purses and everything else in their lives. They are phoney from the word go. If it walks phoney and talks phoney, it must be a star.

Losers attract losers. It's why actors are mostly democrats because they can't think for themself and just parrot what they are told (which they are good since that is what actors do). These actors are the do as I say not as I do crowd. And also notice that these are RICH people. The richest people in congress are mostly Democrats. They call for hire taxes while sheltering their own money. Republicans who typically get rich do so by their own hard work and not inheriting their money like many dems do.

We already have Ronald McDonald for president. I pray that we get a good president next time around. Many Republicans seem to be very hateful people. Just read this board!

#4 Gunny -- I take it you view yourself as "normal" - you lemming war monger. And #5 Bueller I agree: you'd think these rich folks in Hollywood would be behind our republican monarchy, who only take care of themselves and their millionaire friends.

i know which party i belong to, and it's not the one supported by barely-educated celebs! as for those of you that think republicans are only out to protect their rich friends - i suggest you take either a college level econ or finance class, as you are sadly mistaken and only regurgitating rhetoric that you hear come out of your favorite celebs mouth!
