Oh my ...

Zac Efron goes to the White House:

"I admire anyone who has devoted their lives to public service," Efron said.

Linklater is also an Obama fan. "It's great to have a president with such obvious empathy," he said. "You can see it in his books, his speeches and hopefully his politics, although I know that we've got to be patient."

What world is Efron living in? Just about every politician who "devotes their lives to public service" comes away a millionair. Or, in Al Gore's case, a soon-to-be Billionaire.

We've abandoned that ideology, Zac. Get a bit of education.

As for this Linklater fella (I have no idea who he is) ... well, the mind wobbles. "Obvious empathy?" I've got a "shoutout" that says otherwise.
