An odd attempt to improve his poll numbers?

One of the knocks against Bill Clinton was that he spent too much time hobnobing with movie stars. The people didn't seem to mind - Clinton's poll numbers were never so low as W's - but Republicans used to whine about it.

W, too, likes to meet with the occasional movie star. Tomorrow night, for instance, he''ll greet porn star Mary Carey at the prestigious United to Victory dinner. This is the second time Carey and W have eaten together. The meeting was arranged by the NRCC (National Republican Congressional Committee) and it includes face time for Carey with Karl Rove. According to the press release, the famous film star plans to "interact" with other members of the Republican leadership.

To my great surprise, the moralists on the right don't seem to mind.
