Too Funny

From Fox News:
Tens of thousands of voters, including high-profile celebrities such as Kaley Cuoco, Demi Moore and Emma Stone, have accidentally registered as members of a small conservative party in California, according to a new survey.
The Los Angeles Times said that a telephone survey of 500 members of the American Independent Party found nearly three of four members did not realize they had enrolled in a political party that opposes abortion rights and same-sex marriage and calls for building a fence along the southern U.S. border.
The newspaper said voters were confused by the use of the word "independent" in the party's name. In California, voters who do not want to register with any party must check a box on a registration form for "no party preference."
This mistake could prevent people from casting their votes in California’s June 7 primary.
The Times reported that those who made the mistake include celebrities like Moore, Cuoco, Stone and Sugar Ray Leonard. Moore has contributed money to and campaigned for President Obama, the Associated Press reported.
"Demi Moore is not, nor has ever been, a member of the American Independent Party," a representative for Moore told the Times.
Umm, Demi, if you registered for the AIP, you joined that party.  You may not support it, but you and others were so too stupid that you actually did join it.

  1. AIP probably owes its continued existence to sounding as though they're actual independents. They used to be so far around the bend, that you could see the nuttiness from space. But the further right the GOP goes, I guess the closer the AIP gets to the mainstream.

    Funny thing: with all of the Voter ID conservatives have been pushing all over the country, the super-conservative AIP doesn't even want to have drivers licenses, because they think state IDs give the government too much power.
