Hypocrite Hollywood Celebs Break Pledge to Obama ... Couldn't Even Keep Promise to Be Neighborly for 2 Weeks

(Hat tip: HotAir)

Big Hollywood has the story:
It’s been less than two weeks — ten days to be exact — but it seems that May-December Hollywood power couple Ashton Kutcher and Demi Moore have already broken the spirit of their “Presidential Pledge” to Barack Obama.

Last week Big Hollywood drew attention to a
4:13 video directed by Demi Moore and starring Kutcher and fifty-six of their famous friends and intended to “illustrate how they will help make the nationwide change, inspired by President-elect Barack Obama, a reality.”

One of the central tenets of the pledge is to be more neighborly.
From the script — “I pledge”:
Ioan Gruffudd: “to meet my neighbors”…
Rex Lee: “Find out their names”…
Cameron Diaz: “I am gonna give ‘em a smile”…
Tatyana Ali: “And ask them how I can be of service to them”…
The smiling and community service-mindedness ended Thursday morning on the affluent side of Beverly Hills. According to TMZ, “Kutcher went absolutely insane when he was woken up by a neighbor who started construction on a house at 7:30 in the morning.”

My Comments:
When the "I Pledge" video first came out, there were many commentators who noted ironically that there was nothing stopping these newly patriotic celebs from being good citizens for the previous 8 years.

Now we know that those commentators were wrong. There was one great big thing that kept these sunshine patriot celebrities from practicing basic civic mindedness prior to now (and, apparently, in the present and foreseeable future): they're all a bunch of self-absorbed @$$holes.

So let me get this straight, since I missed the first story on this?

CHANGE is to be a nice neighbor now? this is just absurd.

Hey, I'm still waiting for these bozos to keep their pledge to leave the nation if Bush were re-elected in 2004!

Too bad they couldn't get more specific such as, "I pledge not to be a liberal racist puke and to stop hanging Sarah Palin in effigy".
