I just stumbled upon this Seriously Random List while trying to put together another, different one, and it nearly knocked me on my ass, for some reason, to learn that Sam Raimi was a Republican. So, I did a little more research and, no offense to our Republican readers, found four other guys who I wish batted for our team, politically speaking.

5. Dennis Hopper — Self confessed (hell, he was in An American Carol). It’s not that surprising, I suppose, but come on: He directed Easy Rider. It stings a little.

4. Vince Vaughn — Also self-confessed Republican, though I doubt he’s a Bush Republican. It’s the midwestern upbringing, I presume. This one hurt a lot more about two years ago. Now, I’m starting to let it go.

3. Denzel Washington — Washington is an Obama Republican; he donated the max to Obama, but he’s still a hardcore Christian conservative and had even been discussed, hypothetically, as someone to put on the Republican ticket this year. He doesn’t often reveal his politics, but a few years ago, he revealed himself on “The Today Show.”

2. Dwayne Johnson — Spoke at the Republican National Convention in 2000. Shame, too, because she’s so charming and likable. And Republican. Not that there’s anything wrong with that.

1. Sam Raimi — Ouch. The director of the Evil Dead and Spider-Man trilogies actually donated money to the Bush/Cheney campaigns in 2000 and 2004. That one stings the most.
