This book makes a heck of a lot of sense.
Well read in Brooklyn
People with mental retardation don't deserve to be demeaned and Andrea Peyser's use of it in this way is absolutely demeaning.
Kindle Customer
The tone is generally mean,biased and very critical.

'Never discuss religion or politics' - a wise old adage that should be adhered to in the workplace, in places where alcohol is consumed, and by celebutards. Unfortunately during the election year of 2008 many entertainers opted to use their lime-light opportunities to spout their political opinions, operating under some misguided notion that regular folks need to be told by the Hollywood Elite what to think. Much of what they said was condescending, insulting, and offensive. I found it curious that people who make their living in such a competitive field, a field with a shelf life, a field wherein the product is a luxury item that is easily cut from a family budget during rough times, could be so utterly stupid. As the weeks went on a growing list of formerly admired entertainers was being compiled in my mind - a list of celebutards who would no longer be the recipient of my entertainment monetary and time allotment.

That brings us to Andrea Peyser's incredible book. As a discriminating consumer, my money and time was well spent on this witty, timely, thoroughly enjoyable narrative. I laughed (out loud and often); I cried (blessed confirmation that I was not alone in this); and most important - I was entertained !!!

As an aside: During the last couple of weeks it seems the entertainment center has shifted from Hollywood to D.C., what with the daily installments of drama and comedic flair. It's called irony.

While I may agree with some of the political positions taken by some of the "celebutards" that Ms, Pyser skewers so brilliantly--the underlying reality that she so deftly exposes is the need of the consuming public to take them any more seriously then their neighbors or friends.

The argument that entertainers have as much right to free speech as anyone else turns stale when "speech" is a commodity to be purchased by fame money and access to constant media outlets.

Celebrities have become the golden calfs of the current age...
Andrea Pyser has done a great job of beginning to melt them down.

This book is a great look into the double speak of certain celebs that really don't know what they are talking about when it comes to politics and world policies. Sean Penn holds up Hugo Chevez as a hero like figure, yet in Hugo's world there is no free speech and gay rights are non existent, in fact gays are persecuted, so what does Sean really believe? Al Gore and Mike Moore are just unfathomably liars, to put it mildly. Liberals without an open mind will not like this book, but it makes some very good points, but conservatives might find some issues with it as well. One more issue, M. Moore continues to harp on the fact that health care in some European countries and other socialist leaning countries is free, but the truth is that citizens of these progressive societies pay up to 70% in taxes, thereby making health care way more expensive then in a free market society.

Hollywood and Washington have become almost interchangeable as people trade their celebrity and lose their morals in the race to be famous, or just get a decent table at the club du jour.. Andrea Peyser is at her best when devouring the celebrated, insanely dumb people who feed off and use trusting citizens. Read this book and learn. Vote. Leave the house. Don't listen to Rosie O'Donnell or Madonna or Michael Moore. This book makes a heck of a lot of sense.

Format: Hardcover
I have always found it so odd that folks that have acheived fame could not possibly have a valid political point to make. Like the job of actor or entertainer somehow makes someone less valid than a bug exterminator (Tom DeLay-R) Pro Footballer (Heath Shuler-D) or TV Weatherperson (Sara Palin-Party of Stupid). But hey, I guess Al Frankin, Clint Eastwood, Sonny Bono, John Hall, the Governator and Ronny Reagen should have stayed with those day jobs before running for office, right? It makes this book pointless, as Andrea Peyser just goes into rant mode for the bulk of it. I could find her gripes about Alex Baldwin's hypocrisy - being a person for peace and screaming obscenities into a kid's answer machine? - valid. Al Gore's infamous carbon footprint? I'll bite. Madonna? Baby-shopping and religion hopping. Shooting fish in a barrel, that girl.

However, Jimmy Carter is not really a "celeb" or a "debutante," and his works at diplomacy are hardly ill-founded. And the tease and insinuation that George Clooney is gay are beyond useless; they make Peyser into the sleazy bozo she claims to be so angry about. Had Andrea ever listened to Bruce Springsteen's well-spokeness or seen his actions or done anything other than listened to his records, she'd realize tha man consistantly puts his money where his mouth is and follows up. She thinks that being a media personality and having an agenda is a bad thing? Dear Madame, YOU'RE ON TV. If you wanna play journalist, start acting like one. Innuendo and knocking what you don't understand doesn't make a book like this any more credible than 30 minutes of Glenn Beck's bird vomit.

I really enjoyed this book. I was able to read it in about 2 days. Nice little chapters and funny side thoughts. I think she could have dropped some celebs to focus on others but you can't ahve everything.
