Maybe there is no "Daytime for McCain." Maybe nobody has organized such an event. Is the soap press to blame for not covering an even that hasn't happened?

I agree that journalisim should be balanced, but we aren't talking about SOD writing editorials about the presidential candidates, we're talking about some press coverage of some photo shoot. If there is evidence that a similar event was held for McCain and not covered, that's a different story.

I hate that "shut up and act/sing" BS.

As someone pointed out here, actors and entertainers alike are just as american as the rest of us and have every right to voice their opinion and support for who they choose.

The underwear thing is super tacky. I have no problem with celebs expressing their political opinions. It's funny though that most celebs don't vote even when they lecture others to vote. Anyone who determines their vote by what a celeb thinks is a moron.

And THAT is REALLY the bottom line! Celebs have every right to express their political views as do we all! But why should we CARE more about what they think than we do about the opinions of the guy down the street? I don't try to sway anyone over to my POV and hearing that a singer, movie actor or soap star is behind a candidate isn't going to move me in that direction!

Here's my two cents. I'm an Obama supporter (before anyone accuses me of just being a bitter McCain backer), and even I'm not a fan of this. I just don't think it's fair for celebrities to be able use their status to try to sway the rest of the country to vote their way. Do I get a chance to nationally endorse the candidate I prefer? No. But does that make my opinion any less valuable than a celebrity's? Fuck no.
