B-b-but he was in this wingnut movie!Republican movie actor Dennis Hopper is so Republican that he starred in that shitty wingnut movie not even Republicans bothered to see, An American Carol. But now the hippie icon and Republican-since-Reagan is in the tank for You Know Who, That One, Barack Obama. “I voted for Bush, father and son, but this time I’ll vote for Obama,” Hopper said in Paris, which is also in the tank for Obama. “I pray God that Barack Obama is elected.” [AFP]

  1. Nothing warms my heart more than the utter critical and commercial failure of “An American Carol”. Well, maybe with the exception of the even harder failure of Ben Stein’s “Expelled”.

  2. If Jamakane is elected no one will be able to afford to go to movies again. That latest stinker of a movie will be lucky to make back it’s cost no matter who is elected.

  3. Well, this seals it for the Muslin for sure (and, Jeebus, Hopper’s IMDB listing is incredible–have you even seen someone work so much where you have not heard of 99% of the crap he has been in? He has somehow made a living in movies like Super Mario Brothers, Supertruckers, and Meet the Deedles. )

    Oh, and I just want to note that Dean Smith’s endorsement will lose Obama the Duke vote (raising the question, would you want the Duke vote, ha ha ha).

  4. Dennis Hopper for Obama? But I thought he was too busy planning my financial future while sitting in the middle of the desert doing Peyote.

  5. [re=132040]SayItWithWookies[/re]: Pop quiz, hotshot. You’re a conservative old actor who’s political preference has gone from noticably stupid to egregiously untenable. What do you do? WHAT DO YOU DO?

  6. [re=131981]ihasasad[/re]: Srsly. All these “I voted for Bush, all the time, in every election, ever, but now I like Hopey” guys are coming out and admitting their previous wrongs because they think that endorsing Obama is going to absolve them of their sins. The first intelligent vote of their lives, though, doesn’t completely erase their lifelong loyalty to the Bushes.

  7. I hope he is registered to vote in New Mexico.
    ( he owns the old movie theatre in Taos, and almost started a culture war there with the Spanish and the Taos Pueblo by shooting up the place) Seriously.

    If he votes in Taos he could do some good for once in his life.
    New Mexico is a swing state. Kerry lost there by a few thousand stolen votes.

  8. [re=132004]Doglessliberal[/re]: Duke as in John Wayne? I thought that the Indian Nation that adopted the Muslin would’ve lost the Duke vote.

  9. Hopper is being very cavalier with that firearm…I see several violations of the Ten Commandments of Firearm Safety…and there Hollywood goes again!…promoting gun violence and providing very bad examples to the gun owning children of America! Mr. Hopper! Always keep the muzzle pointed in a safe direction and be sure of your target and what’s beyond it! FuQin’ idiot.

  10. Can anyone think of a movie specifically designed to lampoon the conservative movement? Seriously, I can’t think of one. Regardless of how much it sucks, in that An American Carol’s sole purpose is to make fun of an entire political movement it may be a genre-busting, one of a kind, political satire.

    I know some of Michael Moore’s films are funny, or have funny moments. But he doesn’t go out of his way to make fun of entire political movement and its supporters. What is An American Carol reacting to? And, by the way, activists on the fringes are funny already, they don’t need Zucker’s, or anyone else’s, help.

    And great, Hopper is in the tank. Who the hell isn’t at this point? If Wonkette wants to break news, they would be better served to find semi-famous people who support McCain at this point. I request some sort of video-journalism courtesy of Liz Glover designed to find this ever-shrinking demographic.

  11. Can we really trust the man that played King Bowser in the Super Mario Bros movie?

    Evil Lizard Characters from Atrocious Video Game Film Adaptations for Obama!

  12. Half these guys will de-apostasize as soon as possible after the election. They’ll say “I went against my party because I wanted to give Hope a chance, but I realized my error after Obama raised taxes /devalued the currency/ cracked down on American end-timers living in bunkers in Idaho”

  13. Actually, I’m rather happy at this. One more vote for the Hopester. I’ve often thought Pabst Blue Ribbon ought to send Hopper a royalty check every year even if he doesn’t drink any more. Hey, maybe that’s the reason he’s doing this, to screw the rivals Budweiser.

  14. [re=132096]Terry[/re]: [re=132431]Baldeagle79[/re]: I think the timing of “W.” beats them all hands down. I don’t think anyone wants to hear the name Bush uttered for at least the next 10 years.

  15. “What are they gonna say about him? What are they gonna say? That he was a kind man? That he was a wise man? That he had plans? That he had wisdom? Bullshit man! Hey, man, you don’t talk to Obama. You listen to him. The man’s enlarged my mind. He’s a poet-warrior in the classic sense. I mean sometimes he’ll… uh… well, you’ll say “hello” to him, right? And he’ll just walk right by you. He won’t even notice you. And suddenly he’ll grab you, and he’ll throw you in a corner, and he’ll say, “do you know that ‘if’ is the middle word in life? If you can keep your head when all about you are losing theirs and blaming it on you, if you can trust yourself when all men doubt you”… I mean I’m no, I can’t… I’m a little man, I’m a little man, he’s… he’s a great man. I should have been a pair of ragged claws scuttling across floors of silent seas…

  16. By midnight, Rambo, Rocky, the Terminator, Major Dad, Frasier and dim bimbo Angie Harmon will have embraced the great Obama, who will then lose to Sarah Palin who will then ban all Frasier reruns from Lifetime, TV for Women. The end.

  17. [re=131975]Texan Bulldoggette[/re]: Speaking of John Voight, it is increasingly obvious where Angelina gets the crazy from. I thought it was heroine, but now I see it’s just crazy genes. Poor Shiloh and the twins. Oh well, at least they’ll be pretty.

  18. Hopper’s a menace with maverick swagger that reminds of Hilton quoting Milton, Friedman that isn’t: words to the effect that if you know what’s right and still do what’s wrong, well, then that’s really wrong. So as long as Hopper’s in Paris, he ought to wiggle it around a lot and see if she doesn’t expose a nipple or something.

  19. [re=132208]Rodney Badger[/re]: Actually, I can think of one, and it was brilliant: Bob Roberts.

    I haven’t seen it in years, and…oh, my, I forgot Alan Rickman is in it.

    Excuse me; I’ll be back in a few minutes….

  20. Well what do we expect? The man was just inducted into the Legion of Honor–in France . I think no further evidence of his Eurotanky tendencies is required.
