Off to Canada
What's with all the celebrities threatening to move to Canada? First, Susan Sarandon announced she will leave the country if McCain wins ("Maybe Canada, I don't know. We're at an abyss"). Now Stephen Baldwin has told Fox News that he will move to Canada if Barack Obama wins. That's a devilishly tempting choice, although voters should be reminded what happened in 2000: Alec Baldwin, Barbara Streisand, Martin Sheen, and Tim Robbins all threatened to leave the US if Bush won, but none of them actually did. I don't get it. Its not like celebrities aren't a visible breed. If I threatened to move to Canada and failed to follow through on it, only a handful of people would notice. But these guys have movies to promote, concerts to deliver, interviews to give, TV appearances to make..... Do they think we won't, you know, notice?
