I just finished having an extremely heated conversation with someone on this subject. Although I LOVE celebrities, when someone gets a lot of camera time to spout their political opinions, it rubs me the wrong. For example, Matt Damon's comments on Sarah Palin. I would say this regardless of which candidate they supported. I don't think its appropriate. People say its good for democracy, but when someone like Damon has his own soap box, it's a little upsetting because as an actor, he does have influence over others. Any thoughts?
