It's okay if you're a Republican

Actor Jon Voight, who hosted the dinner, delivered a particularly harsh rebuke to Obama, saying he was "embarrassed" by the president and that Obama's leadership would cause the "downfall" of the country.

"We are becoming a weak nation," he said, calling Obama a "false prophet" and his administration the "Obama oppression."
I hope Natalie Maines, at least, finds Mr. Voight amusing. The rest of us can just find him clinically insane. Keynote speaker and admirer Newt Gingrich praised Jon Voight for his "great quote." Jon Voight initially rose to prominence with the Family Values crowd in his role as a male prostitute who solicited sex with men in public bathrooms.
Both Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell and Senator Orrin Hatch of Utah, who followed Voight, seemed pleasantly surprised.

"I’m still just reveling that someone from Hollywood made a speech like that. I hope you’re going to be able to find work after this," chortled McConnell. "I really enjoyed that."

Senator John Cornyn of Texas called the speech "refreshing."
Such amazing hypocrites, the lot of 'em.
