    not saying this would necessarily be the case in california, but in some states, if a politician did not have a undergraduate degree, it would probably not hinder their career at all.

    Clooney's dad is pretty liberal, I think - at least by the standards of the area they're from which is Augusta, KY - near Cincinnati. He was a pretty well liked newscaster for years.

    Most locals respect Nick way more than George, no surprise there.

    I guess that's kinda relevant to this thread, the comparison made me giggle even though I guess Clooney's just as much to blame for this famewhorefest :p

    SEBASTIAN SHAKESPEARE: Mrs Clooney under fire as ‘the new Kim Kardashian’

    The founder of the website that propelled Amal Alamuddin to fame has hit out at her lavish wedding to George Clooney (together above) in Venice, Italy

    The founder of the website that propelled Amal Alamuddin to fame - and, it is claimed, first brought her to George Clooney’s attention - has hit out at the couple’s ‘wildly expensive, carefully choreographed, predictably sentimental and satisfyingly public’ wedding.
    Just weeks before meeting Clooney at a charity fundraiser last September, Beirut-born lawyer Amal, 36, (right) famously topped the ‘Barrister Hottie’ list, compiled by the website Your Barrister Boyfriend.
    This accolade was even mentioned during the wedding speeches.
    Rather uncharitably, however, just days after the Clooney nuptials at the ritzy Aman Canal Grande hotel in Venice, the website co-founder, Natalia Naish, has written a searing critique of the extravagant celebrations, which received 40 pages of coverage in Hello! with the newlywed couple’s co-operation.
    ‘Seems quite rich, given George’s hatred of tabloids,’ Naish points out.
    ‘Amal has taken to her newfound fame like a duck to water, radiating “in love” while she struts her stuff in surprisingly short couture dresses.
    ‘As the details of their four-day wedding emerge - the caseloads of tequila, the never-ending parade of Amal’s designer dresses, the boatloads of grinning celebrities, and the $13million (£8 million) price tag - it all begins to seem slightly unseemly and in-your-face, especially for a couple who profess to be extremely private.’
    Perhaps most woundingly of all, Naish compares Amal unfavourably with reality TV star Kim Kardashian, who tied the knot in May with rapper Kanye West. The lavish ceremony took place in Italy amid a media circus.
    ‘The problem I have with the Clooney wedding was not the excessiveness per se, but the back-patting smugness that has accompanied the entire courtship and ceremony,’ says Naish.

    ‘Even though George and Amal careened around Venice in speedboats, posed up a storm for the paparazzi like modern-day royalty and sold their wedding photos to glossy magazines, they received none of the tut-tutting that was directed at Kim Kardashian.’
    The bride’s law school chum Jae Kim recalled in her wedding speech last weekend how Amal was picked as the ‘Hottest Barrister in London’.
    ‘I was concerned that this would not work in her favour, as most men found her intimidating already,’ Kim told guests. ‘We stayed up talking late into the night about relationships and whether she would ever meet her partner in life.’

    Stasi: Two fairy tale weddings, two different sides of Hollywood

    One couple is the epitome of class and elegance, another is desperate for fame.
    NEW YORK DAILY NEWS
    Wednesday, October 1, 2014, 12:08 AM

    INFIT-10/INFPHOTO.COMEnlargePASCAL LE SEGRETAIN/GETTY IMAGES

    Can you spot the classier couple?



    It’s crass vs. class in this tale of two weddings. Both took place in Italy, both involved brunette stunners marrying handsome, famous entertainers. Both were loaded with celebrity guests, many changes of clothes and more photographers (OK, paparazzi in this case) than you would find at actual important, world events.

    The difference is that one wedding was a crass, ugly affair with prenup photos of the bride traipsing about Paris in an open jacket sans shirt with her boobs hanging out; the other bride quietly went about her prenup days in Como and Venice in clothes so chic, so beautifully tailored and dignified that if it were possible, Anna Wintour would have cried. All right, that’s an exaggeration, Anna Wintour only has one expression: dour, (aka, the many face of Anna Wintour), but still.

    One bride posed with her entourage looking like escaped strippers from the Hustler Club, while the other’s looked like they had just taken a break from filming “Roman Holiday.”

    One bride, (who had, as of Tuesday, 18,000 Tweets to her name), tweeted out every second of her life leading up to the wedding, while the other bride has zero tweets.

    One bride married a man who tweeted, “I think Twitter was designed specifically with me in mind.”

    The other bride married a man who abhors the shamelessness of it all, once telling Esquire in fact, “If you’re famous. ... Why on God’s green Earth would you be on Twitter?”

    One groom most admires people like Bill Murray, who are mostly unavailable. The other groom most admires people who are so self-important that they not just tweet and Instagram their every thought and move, but prefer to do so while taking naked selfies.

    One couple actually lives part-time in Italy, and goes about without fuss; the other lives in the U.S., but tries to arouse as much publicity and cause as much havoc as possible in both France and Italy. This, mind you, as Italy is still attempting to recover from the worst invasion since WWII the attack by “Jersey Shore” slobs in Florence. One bride shops and takes selfies for a living and is famous for being famous; the other is a human-rights lawyer.

    True, defending human rights in complex cases of international law such as that of WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange, clerking for Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor and advising Kofi Annan can’t compare in importance to showing up at the Givenchy fashion show, baby in hand, dressed in your underwear; however, with any luck, Amal Alamuddin will learn to become as meaningless as that other bride.

    She doesn't really move even if you push her over.

    We'd need about six Amal's to make one Kim and three of those would be for the arse alone. I'm also not sure why wearing short couture dresses is seen as a negative either. She's tall and very slim and I don't recall anything in the rules that said a brainy woman with a serious career couldn't dress in something other than aggressive power suits and severe shoes.

    C'mon, Kitty ... she SHOULD have shown up at her wedding in a white pantsuit with big shoulder pads and her hair in a tight granny knot.

    Thank you for your concern. I was busy enjoying my holiday and laughing at all the gossip and rumors.

    Ryan Seacrest just announced that 3 children will be adopted so that George can become a father quickly. LOL
