Buzzfeed brings us an interesting look at celebrities who are either registered Republicans or conservative activists. sarah-michelle-geller.jpegSome of the folks on the list will shock you.

While the usual suspects are on the list (anti-Semite Mel Gibson, holy roller Stephen Baldwin, game show host Drew Carey, and pundit/actor Ben Stein) there are some people mentioned that I'd never suspect would align themselves with an anti-minority, anti-female, anti-middle class political party. While we like to think that celebrities remember their roots, apparently several worry more about the perks Republicans give to the rich. Now that they're wealthy, why worry about anyone else?

Here's some of the Republican celebrities who surprised me:

  • 50 Cent
  • Sammy Hagar
  • Adam Sandler
  • Gloria Estefan
  • LL Cool J
  • Johnny Ramone
  • Sarah Michelle Geller
