The Top Liberals in America


"We've become the people our parents warned us about!" That quip by veteran singer Jimmy Buffet underscored the zeitgeist at Thursday night's major Democratic fundraiser at New York's Radio City Music Hall. Vice President Al Gore and running-mate Joe Lieberman, with respective spouses and Hillary Clinton for good (and local) measure were the front-row guests of honor through a three-hour concert which raised a very impressive $6.5 million for the DNC.

Some of the younger actors were making their first forays into presidential politics and were effusive yet almost charmingly unprepared for the task of public endorsements. Julia Roberts explained her support for Democrats over Republicans by way of her study of the definition of those two words in the dictionary. Her line that she found "Republican" right between "reptile" and "repugnant" was a an easy crowd-pleaser.....

Tonight, Lieberman will join Gore in an unprecedented star-studded fund raiser at Radio City Music Hall in New York scheduled to include as hosts liberal actors Ben Affleck, Julia Roberts, John Cusack and Matt Damon – all of whom have starred in violent R-rated movies – as well as liberal performers Bette Midler, Jon Bon Jovi, Richie Sambora, Jimmy Buffett, Don Henley, Macy Gray, Lenny Kravitz and Crosby, Stills & Nash.

The hosts are Miramax Chairman Harvey Weinstein, Rolling Stone Editor and Publisher Jann Wenner and VH1 President John Sykes, according to Center for Responsive Politics.

On Monday, Gore raised more than $1 million at a star-studded fund raiser in Camden, N.J., hosted by comedian David Brenner that included performances by Luther Vandross, Michael Bolton and Cher.

"He's embarrassing," Roberts recently confided to friends and associates, according to sources. "He's not my president. He will never be my president" Roberts turns animated when discussing politics. She told an audience last year: "Republican comes in the dictionary just after reptile and just above repugnant... I looked up Democrat. It's of the people, by the people, for the people."


Wall-to-wall celebrities at the Democratic National Committee fund-raiser at Radio City Music Hall included Matt Damon, Salma Hayek, Julia Roberts, Michael Douglas, and Harrison Ford, who helped raise $6.5 million for the Democratic cause. Maybe it was her legal activist role in Erin Brockovich, but Roberts confessed, “I’m a Democrat, [but] I’ve never done anything political before” Performers included Sheryl Crow, Lenny Kravitz, and Jon Bon Jovi — who harmonized on The Beatles’ “Revolution” — and Bette “Bathhouse”Midler. The hosts of the event were Miramax’s Harvey Weinstein, VH1’s John Sykes, and Rolling Stone’s Jann Wenner. Introducing Lieberman, Weinstein acknowledged that the vice-presidential candidate “isn’t making my job any easier”but called him “a strong but fair critic of the entertainment industry.” He added, “I’m proud that we were the first to respond this week,”referring to the Sept. 12 statement by Miramax’s parent, the Walt Disney Co., which spelled out “responsible marketing practices”that the company would undertake in order to answer specific criticisms of a recent Federal Trade Commission report. (Mr. Showbiz is also owned by the Walt Disney Co.)
