NewsMeat has published its “2008 Presidential A-List Donor Chart,” showing the contributions to McCain, Obama and Clinton by “America’s most famous and powerful citizens.” Oddly, they’ve included me on the list as a McCain contributor. More oddly still, they misspelled my name.
Presumably they had to include people like me and Pat Boone because it’s hard to come up with actual famous people who are supporting McCain. (No offense, Pat.) To me, the most interesting Obama supporter was John Cleese. Apparently Cleese has become an American citizen, and, out of nostalgia for confiscatory taxes and lousy health care, is supporting Barack Obama.
