    Maybe that’s why they split up…

    That’s a big Whiskey Tango Foxtrot there! The Return of Bob Roberts?

  • Maybe that’s why he and Susan Sarandon have parted ways. He got his conservative epiphany.

  • olive says:

    Before or after his split with Sarandon?

    As Mr. Spock would say, “Fascinating.” I don’t know for sure what’s happening in Tim Robbins’ brain-pan, but, whoa, judging from his Wikipedia entry, he seems to be making his own personal “Long March” away from moonbattery. The fact that Robbins directed a stage adaptation of “1984” not too long ago is interesting. Robbins also seems to have finally discovered that, in Hollywood, the people who stand up most for free speech are actually “out” Republicans and conservative Democrats.

    Welcome to the Conservative Epiphany, Tim Robbins. We all had ours and some of us even left wives behind. So sorry what’s-her-name couldn’t make the jump.

    There will always be other women, but there will never be another valid set of morals and values.

    Loved him in Top Gun 😉

  • Wyatt Wingfoot says:

    Loved him even betterer in Howard The Duck! Or was that Fraternity Vacation?

    My guess is that he supported the GOP candidate in order to spite the Dem. It would be interesting if his donations to conservative candidates coincided with those candidates running against Democrats whom he disagreed with, perhaps even Dems who were insufficiently liberal, out of a desire to have a new Democrat next time. It would also be interesting to know if he supported different Democrats (during the same races) during the primaries, and then, when his primary candidates lost, he decided to spite the primary winner and support the GOP in order to help them lose. If someone is enough of an election expert to comb the various records for this type of information, I’d be very interested to know the results…

    He’s the lucky one!

    Loved him best in ‘Eric the Red’. Best worst Viking movie ever!

  • Zimriel says:

    Robbins had one virtue that Clooney (say) never had: Robbins was never snooty about his beliefs.

    I got the impression that Robbins was a populist with a libertarian bias. “Nothing To Lose” was about a normal guy who (erroneously) thought he’d been wronged by his boss. “Shawshank Redemption” was about a guy escaping an unjust, totalitarian and, at the same time, crime-ridden environment.

    Robbins didn’t like George W Bush but then, neither did antiwar libertarians.
