The Hollywood Reporter:

"America, guys, wake up," he continued. You should be appalled that they can get away with it, that they can attack – the Republican Party is a victim of a bias, of a destructive bias against the Republican Party. It’s been going on for all this time and it’s getting worse and worse. And, now this? Come on, people, stand up."

"Well, [Obama's] father was a Marxist — of course he was influenced by it,” he told Reveal Politics. “His mother, who led him towards his father’s Marxism – yes. His mentor was a fellow by the name of Frank Marshall Davis, he was a communist. And, of course, his alliances from that time on."

You've got to give it to the guy--despite his hyperbole, Voight sure knows how to stay on script.  As the Republican National Convention continues over the week, there's bound to be a couple more quotable right-wing nuggets from the 73-year old actor.

    Voight says, “How can people vote for Obama after four years of failed policies? You know, it’s because of propaganda – they’re very good at propaganda … That’s what we’re battling here today.”

    Sounds exactly what we were thinking in 2004, when Dubaya was re-elected after 4 years of deceit, assaults on civil liberties, and with the radical right wing steering that election. The Republicans had 8 years to destroy what Clinton had accomplished and now they actually want the White House back?

    Give Joe Buck another Golden Globe.
