Scarlett Johansson is involved in the issues that matter! Here she is, sporting her “serious issues” yarn beret, and appearing at the caucuses in Iowa yesterday to support Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama. She’s treading on Oprah’s territory right now, and she better watch out that she doesn’t get slapped. Because Oprah hasn’t slapped a bitch yet today! A rep from Obama’s campaign reported that Scarjo showed up at events in Des Moines and Coralville. Scarlett wasn’t too tired from partying on NYE with boyfriend and washboard stomach god Ryan Reynolds to lend a hand. Seriously, though, we need to retire these berets. They look itchy and make everyone look like crazy aunt Denise in her later years. Right before she died and left all her money to the cat.
