When whoever-it-is says "To give up plastic" I presume she's talking about surgery.

Have they no sense of shame - or at least of irony ? But these people apparently take themselves seriously. I hope they don't expect us to ...

(I don't see much 'cult-like service' here, though. I see a lot of posers. If I knew who any of them were I'd boycott their films that I don't watch anyway. I'll make a start by deleting the kids Chilli Peppers mp3s. Or maybe I should put them on a file-sharing website)

Andrew Breitbart wields the scalpel :

This video illustrates that the current celebrity class are not citizens but serfs. They need a leader to put their minds in the right place to do the right thing. They are not heroic individualists seeking to extend America’s promise but conformists who chose to sit out and complain during the tough years in order to ensure their guy got in the next go-around ...

They never spoke up against the movies that demonized our military.

They never made movies to counter the libel.

They took the easy route. And blamed Bush for everything.

Moore’s nauseating video — which, like Steven Soderbergh’s “Oceans” franchise, grants a pristine look into the modern celebrity’s sense of self-importance — is not a sign of desire to serve the country under Obama. Watch, by March this pledge like New Year’s resolutions will fall by the wayside. It is a sign that the Democrat is in the White House now. It is a sign that they get to sleep again in the Lincoln Bedroom.

Twenty years ago AIDS was the number one cause for the Hollywood left. Remember the trendy red ribbons at all the self-aggrandizing awards shows? Hollywood has moved on (dot org) to better blame-your-fellow-American causes. But President Bush didn’t. And aside from Bob Geldof and Bono, they ignore this president’s demonstrable goodness ...

Remember this video: It is a instructive relic of the era of celebrity decadence and boutique anti-Republican activism under President Bush. It is a sickening display that they want fast and easy absolution for having comported themselves like ill-behaved children for eight difficult and war-torn years.

Good luck, President Obama. The rest of you can go to hell.

And Iowahawk (who else ?) the rapier :

Totally-wasted-on-heroin guy from the Red Hot Chili Peppers: I... uhhh.... ihhh... ahhhh... monkey funky like da junky...

Jason Bateman: I plehhhhdge... to fondle this microphone in a whimsically provocative manner.

Mr. Haney from Green Acres: To never give anyone the finger when I'm driving again. I will instead moon them, with my frightening elderly haunches.

'Greg and Darma' chick with scary feral baby: To save water, by never bathing my child.

Underwear model: I pledge.

I think it's that Spunky Winkerbean chick, the one who had a boob reduction: I pledge.

Brain-fried Chili Peppers guy: To caaaare? For? America's elderly?

Pockmarked guy in Urban Outfitters T-shirt: To make sure America's senior citizens have access to free healthcare and iPods and ringtone downloads.

Spunky Winkerbean: So that our next generation's USB memories will not be forgotten.

Eva Longoria: Now I'm pledging here on the other side of the frame!

Absolutely no clue who this is, whatsoever: To bring awareness to mental disease, like I am doing right now.

Weirdly bloated lips chick: To advance research into stem cells, collagen, and Botox.

Huh? Maybe I'm just getting too old but this is another guy who simply isn't ringing a bell: To spread the awareness of autism -- by becoming autistic.

As a headline I saw elsewhere puts it- "I guess dissent is no longer the highest form of patriotism"

It's all a bit 'Triumph of the Will' don't you think?

(Can't think of that without the bits they used in the Fast Show of the 17th Bavarian Agricultural Corps, or whatever, asking Arthur Atkinson to "tell us zee von about zee vashboard" :-)

What a bunch of tossers, first against the wall come the glorious day! Ugh.

You'd think with all those takes they could get the camera to stay still.

Eva Longoria (in the vid) was on the Jonathan Ross show a year or two back. He made some comment about the stereotype of Americans not travelling abroad much. Without a seconds hesitation she shot back that she was Mexican.

So why is she in the vid? She is not American, St Obama is not her President. What Americans do and who they vote for is none of her business.

Amidst that group of loyal Americans, I spotted a Welshman and a Serbo-Ukrainian who's shacked up with a Geordie.

There is a risk that if you vote for a rock star you might just get a Monkee.

For the most part, I think that the man on the street finds this kind of thing repulsive and phoney. They know the fickleness and superficiality of celebrity culture. I think it's counter-productive.

At 3:54 they pledge

"To be a servant to our president"

No cult of the leader there eh?

I like the way Demi Moore wants to end slavery within five years now. Previously, all those enslaved people could get stuffed, because who wants to end slavery on Bush's watch?
You can't buy this kind of sincerity.

Deeply irrational.

I note that Barry has been quick to deliver on two fairly simple election pledges - funding abortion overseas and embryonic stem cell research.

He'll quickly realise that what makes America unpopular abroad, particularly in Muslim countries, is not war or "torture" (there's plenty enough of that), but liberal cultural values - abortion, homosexuality, etc. Also, that funding abortion and contraception in poorer countries is widely seen as an attempt at covert genocide - which is probably why Bush was so successful and popular in Africa: they thought he was trying to help them out rather than to wipe them out.

If Barry goes further and forces abortion and sodomy on all states against their will, that will be all the evidence the world needs that Barry is the Great Satan of the the Great Satan.

I pledge that, should I ever become dictator, I shall have all such people flogged and then exiled.

Cheers for that.

I pledge to restrain myself from punching these guys in the face, even though I really want to
