Hollywood Hypocrites Bash Overpaid Insurance Execs

Via Michelle Malkin comes's latest piece of political propaganda targeting insurance companies and their evil profits. Few people can afford to brave the health care industry without insurance save for a few of these grossly overpaid actors. I wonder if it crossed any of their minds that loads of people out there might consider this whole worthless ad the ultimate form of self-indulgent hypocrisy. Of course not, these are the beautiful people who care for the poor, blah, blah blah...

Ed Morrissey at Hot Air lists the unbelievable pay the slob Will Farrell has received for some of his great contributions to the film industry:

* Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby (2006): $20,000,000
* Bewitched (2005): $20,000,000
* Kicking & Screaming (2005): $20,000,000
* Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy (2004): $7,000,000

Heartache, just two days after my Mad Men post comes this ad ruining my Jon Hamm moment, as it were. Why can't Hollywood people just stick to their overpaid work and keep their politics to themselves? Dan Riehl thinks they should be forced to receive all their care under the public option and sign a binding legal document forfeiting 80% if their personal holdings to the Treasury if they renege. Good idea, maybe they should just redistribute their income before any health care legislation is passed. If the average family policy is $10,000.00, the proceeds of just one Farrell movie could insure two thousand families this year. Let him put his money where his big mouth is for a change.
