Two weeks ago, would anyone have said that David Letterman or Roman Polanski were important to liberals at all?

It seems like every time a celebrity scandal is in the news, the conservatives decide the perpetrator of the scandal is a liberal and then they try to make liberals accountable for the scandalous actions.

Seriously, who cares about Roman Polanski or David Letterman as a political matter? Have either one of them ever run for office? Do either of them claim to speak as politicians? Heck, Roman Polanski hasn't even been in the United States in 30 years. Whoever decided he was some kind of liberal luminary?

Update:

Same thing happened when Michael Jackson died: all the conservatives decided he was a "liberal" drug addict. I always thought he was an entertainer, nothing more.

Update 2:

Who are the liberals supporting these people? Yes, a few of Polanski's celbrity friends--who might be liberals--support him. So what? Has the California legislature awarded Polanski a medal or something?

    You are correct. They matter no more today than they did yesterday. Nobody cares. The conservatives are trying to pin "rape" and other things on all Liberals because it was talked about on TV....this is not a political thing. It's in the entertainment industry but this concept is very hard for uneducated people to grasp.

    edit : nobody EVER said Liberals "support" or "worship" Letterman; we think he's funny and we watch him for entertainment. what he discusses in NO way reflects what the majority of Liberals believe. People don't understand this.

    They have no real "liberal" connection, but the right will associate them so they can feel better about themselves.

    They don't have much else at this point.
