Some might think Hollywood is one vast stretch of liberal-leaning actors, singers and power-brokers. But RedEye turned up a few names of celebs who've supported conservative policies, parties or candidates to add to GOP mainstays such as Stephen Baldwin, Ben Stein - and, of course, former California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger. Angie Harmon: The "Rizzoli and Isles" actress talked to talk show host Chelsea Handler last year about being Republican and having gay friends. Dennis Miller: Last month on his program, the comedian and radio host lent his support to Republican presidential candidate...

Former Republican presidential candidate Newt Gingrich will visit the University of Chicago on Tuesday night for a conversation with Democratic political strategist David Axelrod as part of the university's Institute of Politics' event series. Executive Director of the Institute of Politics Darren Reisberg said Gingrich was a "logical choice" for the Institute because he has been at the forefront of America's political and policy debates for decades, including the most recent presidential campaign.

I was taken aback by a recent political ad from Texas Gov. Rick Perry, not just because the content is so vile and homophobic but because for years Perry has been dogged by rumors that he is gay. I don't mean "gay" in the playground pejorative sense, I mean that he's had to fend off talk that he's a closeted homosexual. These unsubstantiated rumors have followed Perry since 2004, when he had to deny having a homosexual affair in an interview with the Austin American-Statesman. More recently this summer, Politico ran a story on the subject, comparing the perpetuation of those rumors to the fringe movement...

Basically every prognosticator agrees that Tuesday's presidential election will come down to who will win the 18 electoral votes from my home state of Ohio. Some rail at the silliness of this situation, but I love it. It makes an Ohioan feel like the Buckeye belle of the ball. This weekend, first lady Michelle Obama was in my hometown of Gambier. The week before, Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney was in my grandparents' town of Kettering. And a few weeks before that, GOP vice presidential candidate Paul Ryan visited my roommate's hometown of New Philadelphia.

I went to both Springsteen concerts at Wrigley this past weekend, and I'm a journalist and I'm a reporter, and I got something to report: they were both just totally f***ing sick. Like hemorrhoids in your breakfast cereal sick. Like the 1919 flu pandemic sick. Like hantavirus sick. Not only did Rage Against the Machine's Tom Morrello play all his absolutely sick guitar solos from “Wrecking Ball” but Chicago's own Eddie Vedder appeared both nights to join Springsteen on “Atlantic City” and...
