For What It’s Worth: Need a loan? Maybe Melissa Joan Hart should hit up one of these guys or gals who make up the list of really rich celebrities.

I was browsing around over at Huffington Post and ran across a couple of items.

So if I was that bored, why didn’t I just write something for the blog?  I’ve posted several lengthy articles in the past few days and you really don’t want to risk getting yourself burned out.  I just have to wait until I’m ready.  I guess I’m ready.  So fasten your seat belts, it’s going to be a bumpy night. 

As it turned out, one of the stories I read was an update.  If you read my post last week about Clarissa the Teenage Witch Who Explains It All, you know that poor Melissa Joan Hart was out there pounding the pavement trying to drum up support using Kickstarter to finance a film for herself to star in. 

If you read that article, then you obviously remember my comments about Ms. Hart and that I found it hypocritical for her to be begging for cash from the peasants after she supported Mitt Romney for the presidency.  You remember Mitt don’t you?  He’s the guy who was Yale’s top quote of the year with this gem.

There are 47 percent of the people who will vote for the president no matter what … who are dependent upon government, who believe that they are victims. … These are people who pay no income tax. … and so my job is not to worry about those people. I’ll never convince them that they should take personal responsibility and care for their lives.

Now there’s a reason why I highlighted that last sentence.  Apparently Ms. Sabrina/Clarissa Hart feels that taking responsibility means asking for handouts from all of us useess victims out here who want nothing from the government except handouts.   But if the government is where (according to Mitt) is where all of us get our money, wasn’t she asking for a government handout by proxy?

I say “was” because all of this is now in the past tense.  It seems that when donations weren’t forthcoming, Ms. Hart decided to give up on the idea and will have to settle for another season of slumming with Joey Lawrence.  She had hoped to raise two million, but only raised $51000 from just over 300 donors.  So either those who donate money to Kickstarter Projects thought she had absolutely no potential as a leading lady on the big screen, thought that making a movie solely to jump start your never was movie career wasn’t a good idea, or even possibly like me they remember that she supported Mr. 47 per cent.

But hey, as I said last week, there’s always that tell all book she’s got waiting in the wings.  I’m dying to find out all the inner secrets of Salem Saberhagen just as I’m sure you are.  Well, maybe not that.   I’d rather take a chance on Alison Arngrim’s Prairie Bitch book. 

Let me clarify something here.  How many movies Ms. Hart makes or where she gets the money does not matter to me one bit.   I only felt that if she was going to go the handout route, her hypocrisy should also be mentioned so everybody could make an informed decision of their own before opening their pocket book.

That being said, should the book not work out though, there’s one other avenue Ms. Hart can travel down in an attempt to secure her two million.  Below you’ll find a list of some of the highest salaries in the entertainment industry.  I’m sure one or two of them could be looking for a good investment.  Maybe she can hook up with another Romney supporter named Clint Eastwood and even convince him to direct the thing. 

He’s worth $375 million so conjuring up $2 million for what will obviously be an epic unlike any we’ve seen in recent years should be no problem.  Just don’t leave any empty chairs sitting around.  He might get distracted and start carrying on a conversation with them. 

Then there’s J.K. Rowling.  She wrote all those books about wizards.  Ms. Hart played a witch.  Isn’t that pretty close to being the same thing?  Or maybe not.

Anyway, good luck to you Ms. Hart.  Give my regards to Joey and the Cat.  Here is the celebrity value chart, which is the real reason we’re here.  All the Sabrina stuff was just a distraction to get you here.
