Re "Right for the part?" Opinion, Dec. 30

Daniel W. Drezner makes some interesting points about celebrities' involvement in world affairs. But he misses one not-so-surprising phenomenon: the celebrities' qualifications are rarely questioned unless the cause advocated supports the conservative ideology. One person who comes to mind is author Michael Crichton. Though unlike most other celebrities, he is actually quite educated, his qualifications to question the validity of global warming science (or lack thereof) is constantly brought up. In my opinion, all of these dancing monkeys (conservatives and liberals alike) should just stick to entertaining.
