Conservatives in Hollywood: Is It Really Getting Easier?
I'm hoping Rob Long can weigh in on this.
First there was Clint Eastwood at the Republican convention. "There are a lot of conservative people ... in Hollywood," he said. "It's just that the conservative people, by the nature of the word itself, play it a little more close to the vest."
Then, the other day, I saw an interview on Fox News wherein legendary thespian Scott Baio was asked if it's hard being a conservative in Hollywood, given that he's part of such a small minority. "No," he answered, "because it's not as small as you think it is. The people who believe what I believe are much quieter about it."
And today there's an article, again on Fox News, asserting that, in general, Hollywood Republicans are feeling more comfortable coming forward with their opinions.
So I'm wondering. I know Hollywood is still in California, with everything that that implies. But is it starting to look like there are more conservatives there than is popularly believed? Rob?
