HuffPo’s Top 10 celebrity Obama and Clinton supporters…

There’s no mistaking some sort of bias on the side of the Huffington Post editorial staff over the Democratic Presidential candidates. As evidence, take a peek at their top 10 lists of celebrity supporters for Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton:

Obama has Scarlett Johansson on his side. Clinton has the other Boleyn girl, Natalie Portman. Fair enough.

DeNiro has Obama’s back… Nicholson has Clinton’s… tough call on who’d win in a bar fight.

Beyond that, the matches get pretty ugly.

For power couples, Obama has “the Kennedy women” – Caroline Kennedy and Maria Shriver, vs. Clinton’s team of Ted Danson and Mary Steenburgen.

And while Obama’s list had no apparent trouble being stacked with George Clooney, Samuel Jackson, and, of course, Oprah Winfrey, Clinton somehow had space to fit celebrity blogger Perez Hilton into their top 10 list.

  1. How depressing is it that this actually matters to some people?

  2. I dunno. But I bet HuffPo is dropping all these names for the same reason I am – search engine optimization! (wait, is this live? oops)

    Seriously, though, I’m a sucker for lists. But what stunned me was the inclusion of Perez Hilton as a “top celebrity supporter.” On one side, dude blogs from a Coffee Bean on Sunset. On the other side, dude is just a rip off artist blogger.
