According to the Weekly Standard, there are a few courageous celebrity figures emerging from the depths of Hollywood’s liberal establishment to speak out in favor of President Bush and American efforts in Iraq.

Too wit: Actor Adrien Brody gave a rousing acceptance at the Oscars with his prayer for victory and peace. “I have a friend from Queens who’s a soldier in Kuwait right now, Tommy Szarabinski, and I hope you and your boys make it back real soon and God bless you guys, I love you.” And, the ultimate Hollywood insider Brad Pitt is standing with the president: “We’re in this together as Americans. We’re going to have to go in and get the job done as soon as possible.”

Even hockey great Wayne Gretzky has kind words for the president and the troops overseas. “All I can say is the President of the United States is a great leader, I happen to think he’s a wonderful man and if he believes what he’s doing is right, I back him 100 percent.”
