Okay...so I'm about to become Rush Limbaugh. It's a daunting task to say the least. Needless to say, I have not portrayed a character with this much of a loyal following since I had the lead in "Manson: The Musical". When I first got the part, I was excited. You know, a little singing, a little dancing, a few laughs. Then I read Chris Jones' blog about the show. Or, to be more specific, I read the responses to the blog. The show hasn't opened yet, heck I haven't even seen the whole script, and already the debate over the appropriateness of it is raging.
Here are a couple of examples:
"This is so lame...conservatives should see it, yell out at appropriate moments and then get hauled out...but don't expect to see your arse on the 10 o'clock news. It's not gonna happen. This is Chicago, Obama's city."
"The leftist propaganda machine goes into motion to defame supporters of the constitution and self government. You can't tell me these guys aren't socialists and panty wastes. Don't like Rush or his commentary? Debate him in an open forum. Make your point using logic and rational thought. Of course that can't happen because of the real intention of their action. This is cowardice plain and simple because they can't debate talking points on their merit."
And here I thought I was just an actor. Now I'm a cog in the "Leftist Propaganda Machine". Well, the machine kicks into gear soon…and this cog can't wait.
