Immaterial Girl

Post by efc » Sun Sep 07, 2008 12:23 pm

Here we go again. Madonna using her concerts to compare McCain, who has done rather more than for his country than her, to Hitler is crass beyond words. And then of course the morons support her, the comments from the chap from Cardiff (below) are an example. I did wonder what these people would with their lives when Bush is gone, but it seems they will simply transfer their bile (and more) to McCain.

I didn't know Britain had been "medi evil". Must have missed that.

Madonna infuriates McCain with Hitler-Mugabe sequence at Cardiff concert

Times Online

The campaign of John McCain went head-to-head with Madonna today after the 50-year-old pop diva appeared to compare the Republican candidate to Hitler and Robert Mugabe.
Madonna, who kicked off her “Sticky and Sweet” world tour at the Millennium Stadium in Cardiff yesterday, made the swipe during a performance of Get Stupid, when Mr McCain’s image was flashed up alongside images of the Führer and Zimbabwean dictator, as well as destruction and global warming.
In a none-too-subtle contrast, Barack Obama was bracketed in a subsequent sequence alongside Mahatma Gandhi, John Lennon and Al Gore.
A McCain campaign spokesman, Tucker Bounds, condemned the segment. “The comparisons are outrageous, unacceptable and crudely divisive all at the same time,” Mr Bounds said.
“It clearly shows that when it comes to supporting Barack Obama, his fellow worldwide celebrities refuse to consider any smear or attack off limits."
The McCain campaign has recently been keen to portray Mr Obama as a celebrity, underpinning what it says is his lack of depth and experience.
In one McCain attack advert, the Democratic candidate is juxtaposed with Britney Spears and Paris Hilton. The latter was quick to make a spoof ad of her own, lampooning Mr McCain as an old man.
Madonna is no stranger to controversy on tour. In 2006 she staged a mock crucifixion only a few miles from the Vatican during the "Confessions" tour.
The Madonna tour is her first since striking a deal with the concert promoter Live Nation Inc, which is worth an estimated $120 million over 10 years. The partnership gives Live Nation a stake of future music and music-related business she generates, including touring, merchandising and albums.”

"I think Her Majesty rightly condemned the republican party. They are completely ridiculous and America can simply not afford another 4 years of intellectually going back in time. I mean, the beliefs of an average American these days are compatible with beliefs of people in medi evil britain.

Oh no - Sarah Palin is far more dangerous!

Liberals seem to have it in for anyone who disagrees with them. No wonder a lot of people have turned against the Liberal media for it’s treatment of Palin. Liberals just can’t help themselves. As the saying goes, give people enough rope….
