A conservative is a liberal who’s been mugged

…in this case, by tax policy. (via InstaPundit) Could this be the beginning of arch-Democrat Alec Baldwin’s new life as a right-wing Hollywood apostate? That sounds almost as unbelievable as, say, this:

In 1989, Silver co-founded the non-partisan social and political advocacy group Creative Coalition with colleagues including Alec Baldwin, Christopher Reeve and Susan Sarandon.
“I think there’s almost an obligation [to engage in activism],” Silver said in a 1991 interview. “Many of us are very well compensated for work which a lot of people would love to do. And we also have a lot of leisure time in between jobs.
“They say that Hollywood is sex without substance, and Washington is substance without sex, so maybe the marriage of the two is mutually intriguing.”
A longtime Democrat, he made an about-face and became a vocal supporter of former U.S. president George W. Bush following the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks. Speaking at the 2004 Republican National Convention, he reffered to himself as a “9/11 Republican.”
