Deuce Bigalow – Republican Gigalo

“Hey, Richie, Richie Ceeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee, makin’ copies at the copy machine. Rich, Richmeister, the Rich man”

A minor, but interesting defection from the Hollywood Idiot camp is calling attention to the daily accretion of additional layers of tarnish on the state formerly known as Golden.  Actor and Comedian Rob Schneider, known for his warped characterizations on Saturday Night Live and in movies like ‘Deuce Bigelow, American Gigolo’, has declared that he’s switching party registration from Democrat to Republican.

“The state of California is a mess, and the super majority of Democrats is not working. I’ve been a lifelong Democrat and I have to switch over because it no longer serves the people of this great state,” said Mr. Schneider, as The Blaze reported. “The last time I made a movie was seven years ago and that’s because we’re not being competitive.”

Actually, his decision has been percolating for awhile now.  Rob Schneider had officially joined the chorus of parents resisting California’s mandates of controversial vaccines for children last November, and as you can see in this interview from 2012, he’s quite well spoken on the subject and on the general principal of the limits of government authority:

As an unfortunate post script to this interview, California Governor Jerry Brown did sign AB2109 in to law.  That is yet another example of why California impresses many observers as the forerunner of a national fascist state. There is no longer any pretense of two-party rule – California is a closed shop.  Democrats are solidly in control of the levers of power and are euphoric in their unchecked ability to trash freedom.

In an interview with Ann-Marie Murrell of PolitiChicks, an excellent website targeted at conservative ladies (but highly recommended for my male readers also – because the site is loaded with talented writers)  –  Schneider gives a bit more background on what pushed him over into the GOP camp and now enthusiastically supporting Assemblyman Tim Donnelly (not the actor) in his candidacy for Governor.

“We moved out of the state because of overregulation,” he said, speaking about Texas Gov. Rick Perry’s targeted ads to compel business to leave California for the comparative freedoms of the Lone Star state. “It isn’t helping businesses. We’re chasing businesses away.”  Mr. Schneider added, “Another four years of a Democratic administration will be a disaster, as it already has been.” 

Rob is a surprisingly intelligent and articulate guy and I was impressed with him on that basis, apart from his notoriety, erstwhile as it may be at this point.  A lot of conservatives get goosebumps when a celebrity, whether it be a ‘B’ or ‘C’ list, a former ‘A’ list or even someone who is no longer on any list, defects and comes over to the conservative or Republican side of politics.  Me, not so much.  I’ve seen these folks who usually no longer are tethered to their careers in movies, TV or films, parachute out of the Democrat club and without exception, the legacy media ignores them and the ‘Bread and Circuses Industrial Complex’ takes note and scratches their names off the list of players and lunch invitations.  Then they become sizable fish in the conservative pond for awhile.

Some hang on longer than others and develop cult followings.  Some write blogs that are so pedestrian that no one would read them other than they who remain bedazzled by their faded legacy of stardom.  I’ll keep it classy by not mentioning names.

So, I don’t expect Rob Schneider to be any kind of game changer in the sense that his fans will say “Oh, Rob’s a conservative – hmmm, maybe I should take a second look at Republicans.”  But, what Rob Schneider does signify to me is perhaps a very small kinesthetic impression that the Democrats are reaching the stage where the pain of their suffocating one party rule in California may be jarring swing voters out of their coma.  There have been a few faint and feeble signs of this of late.

Too few and too faint and feeble, to please me.
