Political Donations of the Rich and Famous

This website shows you the political donation histories of various famous Americans, including actors, billionaires, pundits and others. It probably won't surprise anyone that Noam Chomsky has donated only to independents, Rupert Murdoch leans heavily to the Republicans (though not always; when you're Rupert Murdoch, you don't buy your politicians off the shelf as a package), and jingoistic techno-thriller author Tom Clancy is a down-the-line Republican, while lawyerporn writer John Grisham and airport horror writer Stephen King are Democrats. Hollywood and the entertainment-industrial complex seems mostly in the Democrat camp (with the exception of those in the Christian music industry), whilst famous Republicans include boy-band svengali Lou Pearlman and computer magnate Michael Dell.

Does that mean I have to trash my Dell notebook? ;-(

Another good reason not to buy one, methinks.
