No Talent Assclown Ron Silver

He claims he can't find work.

He really, really dislikes liberals, apparently. Odd feeling for a supposed Democrat.

"Michael Moore and that faction of the party was one of the factors that did not let me support the Democratic nominee this year," Silver said. "He is a charlatan in a clown suit. I compare him to Leni Riefenstahl and Goebbels," referring to Adolf Hitler's infamous propagandists.
Yes, a man whose chosen allies are constantly accusing us of calling Bush Hitler is making this statement.

I'll take irony for $1000, Alex. Ron Silver is someone who views the war on terror as a great way to be a bigot without admitting it. His rhetoric, when he's not spewing about how bad liberals are, is about how bad Muslims are.

Silver says his political change of heart and outspoken support of President Bush has exacted a high professional cost in Hollywood, where Republicans are a decidedly rare breed.

"It's affected me very badly. I can't point to a person or a job I've lost, but this community is not very pluralistic," Silver said. "I haven't worked for 10 months."
But has it?
Margery Tabankin, who advises Barbra Streisand and other Hollywood heavyweights on their political giving, said Silver's views, behavior, and claims about his career are in keeping with his persona.
"Ron loves controversy, he loves to say the contrarian thing. That's who he is," Tabankin said. She dismissed Silver's claim about losing jobs, pointing to Republican actors like Bruce Willis and Tom Selleck whose careers have sizzled over the years.
So, he's full of shit, and a hypocrite. What else is wrong with Ron Silver?
"I know John Kerry, I like John Kerry and I respect him, but he is the candidate of the party," Silver said. "And if it's the party of Howard Dean, Dennis Kucinich and Michael Moore, then it's not my party."
He is apparently a big baby, too.

Oh, and he's a liar. Let's take a look at his career as listed at IMDB:

2004: 3 listings
2003: 2 listings
2002: 2 listings
2001: 4 listings
2000: 4 listings
1999: 3 listings
1998: 4 listings
1997: 1 listings
1996: 5 listings
1995: 4 listings
1994: 1 listings
1993: 2 listings
1992: 2 listings
1991: 2 listings
1990: 3 listings

The rest of his career is no more than 2 listings per year. As for 2004, he's had 3 TV appearances, twice as himself, once on Law and Order.

Yeah, he's just dying out there. Maybe he'd get more work if he spent less time whining about how scared he is of the rest of the world, and more time looking for work.
