Bustamante Comes Clean

I think the last time Carlos Bustamante talked with a blogger was when he dropped his now infamous “water-bra” joke on Red County’s Matt Cunningham and former LATimes reporter Christian Berthelsen in the Hall of Administration.

Conservatives Hate Celebrity Unless Celebrity is Conservative

How many times must we read Republican/Conservative contempt for Hollywood celebrity, which is largely liberal and pretty damn wealthy enough to put their money where their mouths are in terms of supports causes they favor, except when that member of Hollywood is a conservative?
