Left-Wing Blogger Wrong About Leno’s Politics

December 2, 2007 @ 4:35 pm

If John Amato wasn’t such a hack and concerned with interjecting politics in something that is apolitical, he might have not made an ass out of himself, which isn’t a new thing by the way. Here’s what the Crooks & Liars (how fitting) blogger wrote after Jay Leno fired his striking workers:

I guess passing out some donuts while wearing his Republican lapel pin to striking writers was as far he was willing to go. What a putz.

Jay Leno is most certainly not a conservative or a Republican, in fact he is very liberal. Here is what Leno told the liberal AlterNet about his political stance back in 2004:

Jay Leno says, “I’m not conservative. I’ve never voted that way in my life.” He “really worries” what a Dubya victory in November will do to the makeup of the Supreme Court. He believes “the wool was pulled over our eyes” with the Iraq war. He thinks the White House began using terrorism “as a crutch” after 9/11. He feels that during the campaign Kerry should “make Bush look as stupid as possible.” He believes “the media is in the pocket of the government, and they don’t do their job” so “you have people like Michael Moore who do it for them.” He has on his joke-writing staff a number of former professional speechwriters for Democratic candidates. “No Republicans.” When it comes to Bush, he doesn’t think his politics are much different from Letterman’s. “Does he show his dislike maybe a little more than I do? Probably.”
