With Celebrity Friends Like Gwyneth Paltrow...

Looks like Obama could be running into some serious celebrity backlash. Gwyneth Paltrow, resident in London, stars in an internet video ad exhorting expat Americans around the globe to get out those absentee ballots and vote, vote, vote — for Obama. Check it out, as detailed in the U.K.’s Telegraph online, but don’t stop with the article and video, look at the 300+ comments so far.  If this is rigged, someone’s done quite a job; and if it isn’t, Gwyneth, give it a rest. To quote from one: “My Brit brothers and sisters… Keep her.” To quote another: “He is not the Messiah” — (One more reason in these revelatory times to dust off Monty Python’s Life of Brian — “He’s not the Messiah. He’s a very naughty boy.”)
