Know Your Buffoons! Buffoonicus celebritas

Want a sneak preview of the book? Here's the sixth in our series where we help you "Know Your Buffoons", featuring the amazing art of John Pennisi - Buffoonicus celebritas. 

Democratic political strategist Paul Begala has been widely credited with this pithy turn of phrase, “Washington is Hollywood for the ugly people.” . He keenly observed the “needy quality that actors and politicians have.”  Back in the day, it was more right-leaning celebrities, but today, Hollywood "Culture Warriors" come from the left. 

If ever there was an award for the most hysterical performance on a political stage, in my opinion, Alyssa Milano would win hands down. Remember her stunts (and her tears!) in crusading against Justice Brett Kavanaugh? The whole "Believe All Women" and the "Me Too" movement and all that? Yet, did you notice Milano's silence when another woman accused then-candidate Joe Biden of similar sexual impropriety? Where was her "Me Too" spirit then! Milano's learned the political game well, but not so well that her buffoonery goes unnoticed.
