The open letter signed by actors Mike Farrell, Martin Sheen and more than 100 of their Tinsel Town pals asking President Bush to back down on Iraq, angered one North Carolina woman so much that she launched an online petition to counter their influence and to let Sheen know that he's not the commander in chief, even though he plays one on TV.
Lori Bardsley, a stay-at-home mother of three, accuses Hollywood celebrity "pundits," as she calls them, of using their celebrity to interfere with the defense of the country.
"Anti-war activism is hip but Sept. 11th was real," said Bardsley. "On Sept. 11th our children were threatened. We expect President Bush to take whatever measures necessary to keep us safe," she added.
Bardsley feels the celebrities don't speak for most Americans. Indeed, one week after she quietly posted her online petition entitled "Citizens Against Celebrity 'Pundits,'" she reports more than a thousand visitors have added their signatures.
"We support President Bush in his efforts to defend our homeland, to defend democracy, and to take any measures to end the threat of terrorism," the petition reads. "We do not claim to know more than anyone, especially President Bush. We elect a President who we can trust to make proper decisions based on facts available to him and not available to the rest of us."
Bardsley plans to make the results of the petition public, and send them to Farrell and Sheen.

Peace & grace be to this place.
........ God bless the troops, always! :)
It took quite a while to open even with the cable hookup.
They need a faster server but I signed.
Done.....I'm tired of hearing these HOllywood clowns pipe off. They need realize they have much less importance then they are aware.
WEST WING SUCKS!
The article states "more than a thousand" visitors have already signed...
Now, it's 67388....
I am SO sick of celeberaties inflicting their opinion on us just because they have a microphone. You know I don't remember one interviewer asking any movie star once "So what do you think about our political and economic system?" Usualy it is "So what are you shamelessly pluging this week?'
