The second and third reasons are Madonna’s: Obama is diverse, and he likes gay marriage.
Hollywood will support Obama as an affirmative action president. That’s why they went even wilder for Obama in 2008 than they went for Clinton in 1992 or 1996. Obama’s racial background makes the guilty white liberals in Hollywood feel great about themselves; pulling the lever for Obama makes them feel even better. Hollywood is notoriously white; racism and sexism in Hollywood are more endemic to the industry than in most others. Obama makesthe Hollywood bigwigs feel good.
As to Obama’s religion, most of Hollywood recognizes that Obama’s not religious. More to the point, even if he were Muslim, they wouldn’t care; they’d see it as another diversity box checked on his resume. So long as Obama’s not an overly observant Christian or Jew, Hollywood’s happy to humor the President.
And then there’s Obama’s gay rights position. Nothing has changed for gays in this country as a result of Obama’s stance on gay marriage. Nothing. But in Hollywood, you’re considered a barbaric rube if you’re anti-gay marriage. Obama really is, for these people, our first gay President.
The support for Obama in Hollywood is visceral, not logical. And Madonna’s a great spokesperson for that view. No wonder she threatens to strip naked if Obama wins re-election. Her comments have already stripped naked the base idiocy of the Hollywood left.
