It takes a pretty brave person to be a conservative in Hollywood. One illiberal statement and your career could be over.
For James Woods, however, that’s not a threat. That’s a challenge.
So, while most of Hollywood may have been feting the participants in the second round of Women’s Marches, which took place this past weekend, Woods was pointing out just how ridiculous they really were.
Woods found one picture in particular and decided to make it the face of the kind of liberal that would have been in charge of America had Hillary Clinton won:

Yikes. That looks like a Ralph Steadman illustration from a hypothetical “Fear and Loathing at the 2018’s Women’s March.” Except it’s real. Ironically, Hillary never considered whether this is really “What Happened.”
Woods fans had a variety of reactions to the photo.
With all due respect sir, I cannot unsee that.

It’s little surprise, too, that some are even considering putting Woods on the ballot to challenge presumptive Democrat gubernatorial nominee Gavin Newsom in this fall’s election.
“James Woods, governor of California?” San Francisco-based conservative activist Melanie Morgan wrote on her blog Media Equalizer in an attempt to get a “Draft Woods” movement going.
“Why not? The Golden State has a long history of electing leaders from the deep end of thespian pool. From Ronald Reagan to Arnold Schwarzenegger, Californian voters actually seem to enjoy casting ballots for Republican actors,” Morgan wrote.
“Let me tell you what I know about James Woods, the man with an IQ of 184 and member of MENSA,” Morgan wrote. “He’s a former Catholic altar boy who aced his SATs, was accepted to MIT, but dropped out to pursue acting.
“For eight episodes, he played himself on Family Guy, in addition to hundreds of other roles as villains or heroes. Woods enjoyed a long career that only recently has ground to a halt because of his conservative political views.
“He’s since become an Internet sensation due to his brilliant, concise and downright scrappy way of summarizing a political moment, right to its essence.”
And he certainly got to the essence of the Women’s Marches… right down to the strange outfits.
