Law and Order star Fred D. Thompson will make his flirtation with a White House bid official this week, forming a presidential committee and launching a fundraising effort that could culminate in a formal announcement over the July 4th weekend, the former senator's advisers said.

It's not a surprise to anyone as Thompson has been hinting about this for months, but I have to ask this: Why is it that Republicans love to smear Democrats as ruled by the "Hollywood left" and yet they fall over themselves in the most embarassing way for actors-turned-politicians?
