She did make some nice albums with Nelson Riddle, though.

"I really care about Linda Ronstadt's political opinion."

You only value the political opinions of Reality TV Stars with zero prior political experience.

Any thoughts on how that happened to you?

Linda Ronstadt's political opinions are just as valid as those of the giggling couch tumors on Faux and Fiends or those of the "entertainers" named Hannity, Carlson or Ingraham.

To Pompeo:
You're no good, you're no good, you're no good, baby, you're no good.

Linda Ronstadt's political savvy surpasses most people including you. She was very close to Gov. Jerry Brown and have spent a lot of time hanging with political movers and shakers.

What's the source of your credibility ... bitching out "lefties: in the DR?

Oh footnote... Jerry Brown mopped up Aaaaahhhhhhhnulds mess. Ahhhhhhhhnuld was another one of them t.v. stars the clowns think is going to save us.

Back when Jerry Brown was bonking her, Linda Ronstadt was majorly hot. And unlike Trump, he didn't have to marry her or pay her bribe money. Ronstadt dated him and went on vacation with him because she wanted to. THAT'S the difference between a real winner and a mere whoremonger.

If only all celebrities adopted this view.

Anthony Hopkins on Why He Doesn't Talk About Politics: 'Actors Are Pretty Stupid'

n a conversation with fellow actor Brad Pitt for a lengthy chat for Interview magazine, Anthony Hopkins explained why he seldom -- actually: never -- talks about politics... and why he's not a big fan of other actors talking about politics either. In short: "Actors are pretty stupid."

Obsessive-compulsive political correctness syndrome:

...her[Rondstadt] telling the San Diego Union-Tribune in 2004, "It's a real conflict for me when I go to a concert and find out somebody in the audience is a Republican or fundamental Christian. It can cloud my enjoyment. I'd rather not know."

Starting with Trump.

Strokes will do that to you.

They'll also make you pretend to defend musicians while you're ripping them off, believe plants are moving northward as a political statement, and think borrowing $2.3 Trillion won't make us more dependent on China.

@#3 ... She did make some nice albums with Nelson Riddle, though. ...

Back in the day, I saw Ms Rondstadt (sans Nelson Riddle) at the Saratoga Performing Arts Center (Saratoga, NY).

Front row center seats. The Center saved the seats in the orchestra pit for the locals to buy at the box office. The rest of the seats were put on Ticketron, available to anyone.

She put on a most excellent show.

But, like you, the opinions of celebrities matter little to me in and of themselves.

Lucky you. I had some great seats for Sarah Vaughn at UCLA's Royce Hall, but not quite that good.

Which is why conservatives elect them so often as president. Reagan AND Trump.

Pompeo needs to go back home and STFU.

Blanket statements like that are stupid. Repeating them is even more so. But then, that is why right wing douche bags do, they repeat talking points and think they are actually saying something important.

When he resigns. Or gets thrown under the bus by Humpy.

Which should be any second now.

Idiots that live on a Russian Troll farm in St Petersburg, Russia (see you) are extremely stupid.
Your accent gives you away comrade.
