Hollywood Liberals Think You are Common

And, their poster child for idiocy, Gwyneth Paltrow, has a message for you.

You are common.  Here is my response, “Gwyneth, shut up!”

Full disclosure:  I used to love Gwyneth Paltrow.  I really did.  We are very close in age, our kids were born around the same time.  Yes, there is a major disparity between the two of us in income and appearance.  But, I didn’t just completely lose my mind, like she apparently has.

When last we visited Gwynnie, she was gushing inappropriately over the president.  Now, in addition to many other idiotic things that she has said, Gwyneth is proclaiming that she is very similar to the “common” woman.

Ok, anyone who would refer to anyone else as “common” is so out of touch with reality that she actually calls other people common.  I can’t even conceive of calling someone else “common.”

I know that she lived in England for a while and she has even been confused about her actual accent, but she isn’t royalty.  I know that her mom, Blythe Danner, sort of gave up her career while Gwyneth and her brother, Jake, were growing up.  So, jet setting between LA and New York on her pageant legs while she grew up was “common.”  That was, until she went to the movies with her daddy (the late television producer, Bruce Paltrow) and family friend, Steven Spielberg, who said, “Hey, Gwyneth, wanna be in a movie?”

So, 20 years later, she is royalty and we are all a bunch of bone heads.

Gwyneth Paltrow has nothing in common with the “common” woman.  She has a staff.  She coordinates with the nanny to get the children to school.  She spends her days with a personal trainer, then instructs the maids on how to clean the house and the cook on what to prepare for dinner.

And, maybe, she is so removed from the rest of us that she wishes she were more like a regular person.  I don’t know.  But, she isn’t going to be getting many more fans talking the way that she does.

So, Gwyneth, zip it.
