What is Denis Leary? Is he conservative or liberal? He's from my homestate, MA, which is notriously liberal, but he's from Worcester, which has a fairly high concentration of conservatives (well, in my estimation from when I went to college there).

I'd have to say he's probably more of a libertarian kind of guy.

Never really cared much as long as he could make me laugh, though.

Yeah I don't really care, just was curious. His song "Asshole" warms my heart.

Couldn't tell you, but the last time I watched him, he was absolutely viciously tearing the dems a new one. Laughed my butt off.

seems more a comonsense type person than political ideolog

He is anything but PC. He seems to dislike people who are PC.

After listening to his comedy and watching Rescue Me (he was a cowriter of the show), I would have to say he is NOT liberal.

I still have yet to see that show. I was in Worcester at school when his cousin was killed in the fire, that was a bad night. I hear awesome awesome things about the show, just never catch it. Maybe I'll just buy the DVD set and see if it's worth the money.

I remember seeing him on a comedy show around the mid-80's and he was tearing into Ted Kennedy/Kennedy family. Denis was ripping on the ole Teddy boy about Chappaquiddick, it was farking hilarious. From that day on, I thought Denis Leary was cool in my book.

He was on a talk show around Christmas and went off about the importance of buying BB guns for all your kids so they'll learn how to handle a weapon safely.

Whatever he is, I like him. He is funny and his show Rescue Me is awesome.

He's not fooling me. Like all entertainers, there's the stage Denis and then there's the real life Denis. He's an angry/rant comic ala' George Carlyn but if he's Boston Irish, he's a died in the wool Dem.


FWIW, he's on the NRA/ILA list of celebrities who are gun control activists. That doesn't mean his act isn't funny but it does tell me that it's mostly just an act.
