What is more absolutely interesting to America than actors who have opinions about politics? Gosh, not much! (Economic regulation theory, maybe?) So, good news! Andrew Breitbart, the longtime Drudge henchman, is launching BigHollywood, a website for the non-left out in L.A. (Politico hilariously calls the staff “a who’s who of regular writers such as the Weekly Standard‘s Joel Engel, Commentary‘s next editor John Podhoretz, and novelist-screenwriter Andrew Klavan.” They mean, I think, a “who’s what?” It is run by the guy who ran the “website for L.A.’s conservative Liberty Film Festival.”)
But it’s true—why should Barbra Streisand get all the attention? Let’s get more blogging out of Chuck Norris and the delicious Kurt Russell! The people need to know! There is just so much to be fascinated by—don’t forget that HBO fight-flick director Leigh Simons is supposedly now shooting a documentary called PoliWood. And this election is, after all, about the rise of the opinion machines. The more platform and the more bandwidth that everyone has to burn on their thoughts about peak oil and Afghanistan and about how bad other people are, the stronger America becomes (on the chatboards of the Internet). A nation of commenters cannot fail!
