    Thank you CBS/San Francisco! (I never thought I’d ever thank those two entities in the same sentence in my life!) This was a fascinating read, great pics, you guys really did your research. Some of these (Robert Duvall, Dennis Miller, Chuck Norris) were not news to me, but I think you guys make have “broke the story” on A list celebs especially like Adam Sandler and Bruce Willis. It was nice to see that you gave the information in a non-partisan way and how you resisted the not-so-subtle “digs” that I’ve come to expect whenever the words “conservative” and “republican” enter the picture. Great piece – can ya make this a series and give us more “names?” I reposted this on Facebook and my friends are enjoying this story as well…hats off to ya!
