The surge against Bush and the Contemptuous Conservatives in America seems to be rolling right along. Liberal actors and political activists in Los Angeles held a “Hate Bush” event on December 2nd. The event was put forth by Laurie David, wife of Larry David, the creator of the hit 1990s NBC series “Seinfeld” and was attended by people like actress Julia Louis-Dreyfus and “Unprecedented: The 2000 Presidential Election” producer Robert Greenwald.

BEVERLY HILLS, CA (Talon News) — A group of liberal Hollywood actors and political activists have planned a “Hate Bush” event scheduled for Tuesday night at the Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills, California, the Drudge Report announced on Monday.
An invitation to the “Hate Bush 12/2 – Event” was sent out by Laurie David, wife of Larry David, the creator of the hit 1990s NBC series “Seinfeld.”
The invitation states that this meeting is “most important” to attend and will serve as a concerted effort by Hollywood liberals “to prevent the advancement of the current extremist right wing agenda” being promoted by President George W. Bush. The invitation urges the recipients to “not miss this meeting.”
“This will be a high-level briefing to discuss the strategies … [that will] affect what happens next November,” the invitation concludes.
Former Clinton Chief of Staff Harold Ickes along with liberal pro-abortion group Emily’s List founder Ellen Malcolm are serving as co-chairmen of the meeting.
Others scheduled to be in attendance include Hollywood producer Julie Bergman, “Got Milk?” marketing guru Scott Burns, entertainment attorneys Steve Byrnes and Jamie Mandelbaum, Endeavor Talent Agency’s “Ari” Emanuel, screenwriter Naomi Foner, children’s author Cami Gordon, liberal producer Norman Lear’s wife Lyn Lear, Creative Artists Agency Foundation Executive Director Michelle Kydd Lee, “Seinfeld” actress Julia Louis-Dreyfus, actress-environmentalist Nancy Stephens, actor Daniel Stern, United Talent agent Jay Sures, Hollywood Women’s Political Committee President Marge Tabankin, 1980s model/actress Heather Thomas, and Elizabeth Wiatt, the wife of William Morris’ Jim Wiatt, among others.
Also attending will be Robert Greenwald, executive producer of the 2002 documentary entitled “Unprecedented: The 2000 Presidential Election.” This film was Greenwald’s attempt to portray the “stealing” of the 2000 election by Bush and the Republicans. Greenwald also teamed up earlier this year with Mike Farrell to form an anti-war group of actors called “Artists United.”
The group behind tonight’s event calls itself America Coming Together (ACT). Talon News recently reported that Democrat billionaire George Soros has already pledged to donate $10 million to ACT earlier this year. ACT plans on spending an ambitious $75 million over the next year in an effort to defeat Bush in the 2004 election.
The group has identified seventeen key “battleground” states to hold voter rallies where they will “listen to voters’ concerns about the issues” and spread their “positive, progressive alternatives” to “the extremist positions of the Bush agenda.”
Furthermore, ACT hopes to “mobilize millions of voters who will say ‘no’ to the Republican agenda by voting to defeat George W. Bush and elect progressives up and down the ticket.”
The group focuses on unemployment, budget deficits, Medicare, Social Security, war in Iraq, judicial nominations, civil rights, women’s rights, worker’s rights, and homeland security concerns as the primary issues that need to be addressed.
Despite these concerted efforts by liberal activists and groups attempting to oust Bush from the White House, Talon News reported last week on a TIME/CNN poll that finds most registered voters in the United States by a large margin prefer Bush over any of the nine Democrat presidential candidates in 2004.
