Danny Elfman, veteran film score composer, has started a political action committee this election: OurGreatestFear.org.   The mission?

The simple frightening fact we’re trying to get out now is this. If you factor in John McCain’s age and his continuing battle with cancer which can reoccur at any time, the probability of him not completing his term is higher then president in American history.   That would leave us a with true American nightmare, and our greatest fear… President Sarah Palin.

Huh.   I knew I liked Danny Elfman for a reason.   I thought it was for his music.   Now it’s more than that.   Who knew he was so political?
