"...if you love freedom."
Sorry, but I had to hear that for eight years. What else do you have?

Am I evil for kind of wanting her to win just to see the resulting train wreck?

The "CONTROLS MEDIA" bit on the "government over-reach" list supports my theory that, like many washed up celebrities (well, Peter Barbarian anyhow, he told my roommate all about it) her questionable beliefs are tied up with some vague notion that the state of her career is the result of some kind of Hollywood insider conspiracy against her.
There probably is a conspiracy against her. I mean, by now, most of the entertainment industry knows how terrible she is to work with, how bad her talent is, and how having her affiliated with you is damaging to your reputation.
Much like there's a government conspiracy to keep repeat DUI offenders from getting a drivers licence.
She's not the only one. Dwight Schultz, Dennis Miller, Kirk Cameron, and just about any comedian/actor whose brief time in the limelight goes the way of the Dodo because they can't keep from proselytizing everyone about their wingnut fantasies.
When they say "there's a conspiracy against my career," they really should be saying, "I can't keep from irritating everyone around me rather than doing the job I'm supposed to be doing which is acting/entertaining."
Maybe some of them see their elevated status as a platform to start going all Glenn Beck 24/7, not realizing this is about as welcome as keeping a pair of caffeinated Jehovah's Witnesses in your living room instead of a TV. However, I'd also say a large part of this is an embracing of right wing ideology in a hope that it will get you an automatic audience without too much effort.
If they had any talent to speak of, I bet they'd still be finding work, annoying personal opinions or no. There's a reason Alec Baldwin is more successful than Stephen, and it's not their views on Obamacare.
Janine Turner's another one. Remember her? She played the love interest in "Northern Exposure". She was a tolerably good actress who had quirky good looks, and managed to be in the right place at the right time to star in an hour-long series. Then her career tanked, not because of her politics, but because lightning rarely strikes twice. And while we're at it, do a Google image search for her; whatever pixie-like cuteness she had going for her in 1990, it up and left some time ago.
Sorry Janine, one time you happened to get luckier than 99% of the women waiting tables in LA ever do, that doesn't mean the world owes you an ongoing sequence of acting gigs. Or do you think there needs to be a program in place to make sure that conservatives are given an equal shot, let's call it an "affirmative action" program of some kind?

I'm not going to watch. I just ate and her voice has a certain effect on me. But 5 anyway.
