Jessica Simpson and Dad Are 'Huge Fans' of Bush
Recently, some on the left were giddy over reports that singer/actress Jessica Simpson had snubbed George W. Bush by passing on meeting with the president, speculating that Jessica had joined the anti-Bush brigade.
One Boston Herald headline read "Simpson Disses Dubya." A Chicago Tribune caption read "Simpson has G.O.P. Frowning." And a U.K. Telegraph title read "Bush Fails to Woo Ms. Simpson."
The response by Jessica and her father to the press reports, though, has libs and Bush-haters smarting.
Jessica's dad and manager Joe Simpson said that his famous daughter "loves the heck out of him [Bush]."
Not only is Jessica not among those in Hollywood who are following the lead of George Clooney and routinely slamming the president, she's actually a fan of our current commander in chief.
"He's a very personable guy, he's a Texas guy. His ranch is four doors down from my aunt and uncle's ranch. We have lots of Texas stuff to talk about," Simpson said.
The Simpson/Bush "controversy" began when the "Dukes of Hazzard" star visited the nation's capital to lobby on behalf of Operation Smile, a group that provides plastic surgery to children with facial deformities.
Reports circulated that Jessica had turned down an invitation to attend a Republican fund-raiser with President Bush. It was thought to be a snub.
"We went back and forth and we could never get the details worked out," Jessica's father explained. "When it became obvious that it was not just a state dinner, it was more of a fund-raising event, that is the wrong purpose of why we are here." So says The Associated Press.
Evidently, Joe made sure that Bush's enemies would be stopped in their slaphappy tracks when he added, "We are huge fans of him and of his family, his girls. Jessica loves the heck out of him."
Joe and Jessica were trying to find a way to meet with President Bush for the entire duration of their visit. Joe described the attempt to reschedule the meeting as "trying to get in and out."
Jessica said she was "so excited because the President asked for a special meeting."
Prior to the Simpsons' positive Bush comments, the left and the mainstream press were elated. They thought they had a younger, more attractive Cindy Sheehan on their hands.
But a Jessica turnabout like that would be Texas-sized since she has performed at Bush's inauguration, visited the White House four times and has relatives who live near the president's Crawford ranch.
The Left Coast Report knows that hell hath no fury like a disappointed press, so Jessica best beware.
