UPDATE October 5, 2008: An updated and much longer list has been posted HERE.

The stars were chosen because they have either been recently in the news or were run across in my non-scientific Internet search. A short explanation is given about some of their comments or actions in favor of Obama but please take it with a large grain of salt as it is in no way complete. In case someone asks, of course there are a small number of stars that support the John McCain / Sarah Palin ticket like Sylvester Stallone, John Voight, Ted Nugent and Charlie Daniels.

It is no secret that most Hollywood and music stars are liberals and have become a reliable source of campaign cash for Democratic candidates. So far according to the Center for Responsive Politics the music and entertainment industry has given over $ 5.6 million to the Obama presidential effort and donated $ 3.4 million to the Hillary Clinton campaign. How did John McCain fare you ask? His campaign has received $ 885,000, total.

Not included are many rap and hip-hop stars like 50 Cent, Chamillionare, Scarface, etc., because around 95% of their community supports Obama’s candidacy. To list them all would take forever. They support Obama by using clothes with Obama’s image on them on stage, by putting up Obama or Obama/Biden banners at their concerts, etc. Almost all speak favorably of the candidate and hope the more outspoken members of their community tone down their support for fear of alienating voters that do not understand what their music is about. Some artists have said they support and will vote for Obama because he is one of them. Others say he is the most qualified for the job with race having nothing to do with their decision. To say that they are excited about this election is an understatement!

Below the stars, more or less in alphabetical order, listed by their last name. Looking for Oprah? She’s under W for Winfrey. How about Jay-Z? He’s under C for Shawn Carter. Linda Evans? Try E for Linda Evans.

Most people outside of the hip-hop community missed the significance of the gesture but it quickly became controversial. In a mater of days after the controversy that a presidential candidate for the first time ever used hip-hop inspired gestures during a speech had reached a crescendo, it was learned that the gesture could be related to a song by Jay-Z called “Dirt Off Your Shoulder”. The gesture meant shaking those that hate you off or getting rid of negative energy. Obama and his campaign have said that in his iPod Obama has songs by Jay-Z….

  4. Poor deceived celebreties! They can’t separate reality from the make-believe world they live in. Their credibility concerning the complex issues of the real world is non-existant. They practice bait and switch: reel the people in with their performing skills (or lack there-of) and then try to convince you that they have some active brain cells on the subject. Here’s a little advice: You can’t create your own script as to how the world should operate! When I need a doctor, I don’t call a plumber! Stick to what you know and don’t meddle where your ego is neither helpful or desired! Why don’t all of them donate their giant, obscene salary’s to the government and leave the rest of us alone!

  7. Unbelievable! I agree with M. Gabriel – if Hollywood wants to help so much why don’t they live in normal house and buy their jeans at Target and Wal-mart – like the rest of us do. I feel like they are very hypocritical.
