Agreed -- I'm recalling a few years back when Jerry Doyle (from Babylon 5) ran for a Congressional seat in his district, and numerous times ran into snide comments from reporters that he was merely a "sci-fi celebrity candidate," and that "only his nerd fans" would ever vote for him, etc.

Unfair, but it still happens in this day and age.
