David Zucker is a famous movie producer, of films such as Airplane, Naked Gun, Top Secret!, and An American Carol. Like many denizens of Hollywood, Zucker was a mindless unthinking liberal and had contributed big bucks to California Demonrat Barbara Boxer in her past (successful) elections for the US Senate.
But like many other Americans, Zucker’s eyes are now wide open. He has finally seen the light. He now regrets having supported Boxer and penned an apology to Big Government readers:
Every time I see the public record listing my campaign contribution to Boxer — I wince. I mean, we all have things we’ve done in the past that we’re embarrassed about, but I’d rather have my being restricted to 100 yards away from elementary schools be public knowledge than that $5,000 Boxer campaign contribution.
