Great. Chris Rock will give his most informed opinion on gun control on Capitol Hill. It's all about celebrity now, right?—

Not just now; perhaps a better word is “again.” Vice President Biden and his “task force” already hypocritically met with noted experts from Hollyweird. No photo op, though!
Now, more B-listers, including comedian and actor Chris Rock, head to Capitol Hill.
More from Politico:
Comedian Chris Rock, long outspoken about the issues of guns in American culture, is heading to Capitol Hill on Wednesday to support President Barack Obama’s new gun control package in the wake of the Newtown, Conn., shootings.
Rock, along with singer Tony Bennett, actress Amanda Peet, actor Adam Scott and actress Anna Deavere Smith will join a coalition featuring Rep. Mike Thompson, D-Calif., Mayors Against Illegal Guns and the Law Center to Prevent Violence at a press conference in the U.S. Capitol.
Oh, well. Long outspoken. Case closed! He’s totally fit to help shape freedom-grabbing policy!
Less serious, indeed. Not only is the whole celebri-policy idea patently absurd, but Chris Rock? Hey, why don’t they ask him about the time he shoved Jason Mattera’s camerawoman? Or about the time he shamefully celebrated Independence Day by slamming it as “Happy white peoples independence day”?
Less serious and even more hypocritical, as citizens on Twitter rightly point out.
No credibility. A joke and political theater, as always. That’s why President Obama always needs actors.
