Kewl Guy Richard Belzer is never out of character. Here he vies for "props" and "street cred" from a real kewl guy in sunglasses.
Television actor Richard Belzer (Law & Order) appeared with Mika Brezinski and Joe Scarborough on MSNBC this a.m. to comment and voice his support of Barack Obama. Why the opinions of a television actor should merit a visit upon a show which pretends to analyze politics is beyond me, but it fits with the course of things in the Democratic Party fringe. While Andrea Mitchell appeared earlier as herself to comment on the race, Belzer appears to have got himself confused with the dick he plays on the TV show. He was dressed all in black, except for his hair which is silver gray, and he wore very dark sunglasses a la Phil Spector. All the kewl people will now vote for Obama, I’m sure, adding dramatic new dimension to the Obama “bitter” fiasco during which Obama excoriated Pennsylvania voters for clinging to their gats and prayer books while he knows the price of “arugula” (which dopey Pennsylvanians call “spicy lettuce”) and demonstrates his superior knowledge of the Second Amendment by conjuring up visions of “hunting ducks with a six-shooter.”
