You Really Didn't Think That John Grisham's Heroes Were Republicans, Did You?

Right on cue: Rightwing bloggers' heads are exploding over this:

Famous author raises money for Clinton

CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (AP) — Author John Grisham teamed with Democrat Hillary Clinton to raise money for her front-running presidential campaign today.

It marks the second time since July that the Senator from New York has campaigned in Virginia, a state that last supported a Democrat for president in 1964.

The creator of Deep South legal thrillers that later became box office blockbusters attracted prominent Democratic donors to a renovated downtown cinema for a fundraiser billed as "A Conversation with John Grisham and Hillary Clinton."

In July, addressed a statewide gathering of county elected officials in Richmond.

Grisham and Clinton became nationally known about the same time — the early 90s.

Clinton was the little-known first lady of Arkansas until the 1992 presidential campaign cycle that made her husband the president.

Grisham was a lawyer and a Democrat in the Mississippi House of Representatives from 1983 to 1990. His breakthrough hit, "The Firm," was published in 1991.

Grisham now lives with his family near Charlottesville.

Please tell me that Republicans didn't honestly think that John Grisham's heroes were Republicans.

Or that they think that characters like "Hawkeye Pierce" and "George Bailey" are Bush-loving Dem bashers.

That would be too weird for color TV, y'all.

Best bar bet in the world: Delilah didn't do it.
