In yet another example of the Right's love-hate relationship with Hollywood, presidential candidate Tim Pawlenty will welcome Screen Actors Guild members Jon Voight and Kelsey Grammer to the Hilton Minneapolis today for a fundraising extravaganza. The gala will kick off the Minnesota governor's leadership PAC.
Voight will appear in person and warn those present that America "is at a clear crossroads," according to Variety. The star of Frasier couldn't make it in person to the real America, so instead will offer some words of encouragement via speakerphone, presumably from his Beverly Hills mansion.
Things are expected to get extra-crazy tomorrow when Voight joins forces with Michele Bachmann to storm the U.S. Capitol to try to stop health care reform. We'll keep you posted.
