Human rights activist Angelina Jolie may be Forbes' most powerful celebrity in the world.

But her estranged dad, Jon Voight, is trying to compete with her in a vastly more vicious arena: the Republican base.

He reportedly enthusiastically hosted the fundraiser dinner for the Republican House and Senate campaign committees last night.

He blamed Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, George Soros and Chris Dodd and “their ilk” for what he called the “downfall of our country.”

He peppered his speech with derogatory remarks about President Obama’s “false Halo-istic presence” and his being anointing as the “one” by Oprah Winfrey.

Voight described Obama’s policies as ”wildly radical.”

Voight ended his speech praising Fox News pundits Sean Hannity, Rush Limbaugh, Bill O’Reilly, Glen Beck and Michelle Malkin for trying to defeat the “false prophet Obama.”

Good grief.

Was Voight trying to outdo Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, who attended the event but didn't say a word, probably because she didn't want to be accused of stealing Newt Gingrich's words again?

What do you think? Do you agree with Voight?

Sarah Palin accused of stealing Newt Gingrich's speech!  New speech writer needed ASAP!
