    As a paid subscriber to the magazine, I just got a request from Reason to donate some cash to the project. I'll see what I can find to help.

    His first book....Dirty Jokes and Beer, despite the title, gives a very good look at his libertarian leanings, he is not a dumb guy.

    He recently sparred with Bill Maher on Maher's "Real Time..." show. (Maher claims to be liberterian...yeah, right).

    Carey was very supportive of the war. Don't know where he is now.

    I didn't watch the video, but I've been following Carey since the late 80's and he's always been very upfront about his libertarian leanings.

    If it weren't for his views on abortion, I'd probably vote for the guy.

    I saw a documentary about Drew Carey and Blake Clark and a couple of other comics who went to the Middle East to entertain our troops and that was the first time in many, many years that I was proud of anything Hollywood did.

    In the eighties and early nineties, I played a lot of clubs with different comics (I doubt very seriously you'd have ever heard of them) and I got to know a little about that scene.

    Of course you have your comics who are liberals, like George Carlin, Penn Jillette, etc, but you'd be shocked at how many of them are either libertarians or conservative Republicans.

    Of course, you all know about Dennis Miller and now you know about Drew Carey, but there's also Robert Wuhl (if you've ever seen his series of HBO specials called "Assume the Position", you've seen what I'm talking about).

    Kevin Pollock, Brian Regan, Larry Miller and Dom Irrera are all either conservative Republicans or libertarians.

    Kevin Pollock does one of the best Ronald Reagan impressions I've ever heard.
