When a celebrity says something political, why do we react as if an elected offical or government employee said it?
I love Morgan Freeman, think he's a fabulous actor.....don't care what his political POVs are.
I love Michael Moore movies, think they're hilarious and some of them quite moving, but again, don't care what his POVs are.
Rachel Maddow is a media whore (said in the nicest possible way), not running for office. Again, don't care.
I can keep adding to this list. Point is, we overreact to the news that some celebrity has spoken about our political system as if they had any special insight. They're good at what they do (at least some of them) but what they do is not politics.
WHY do we care so much?
