Like a Dumbass
I've always believed that Madonna is a minimally talented skank with a great gift for self-promotion. I've liked a few of her songs, but for the most part, her act sickens me, and it has never ceased to amaze me that someone with so little to offer musically has been able to forge such a long, lucrative career. The missus loves her, by the way. As I've said often, we have a mixed marriage. But back to Madonna. She kicked off her latest tour Saturday night in London, and at one point, according to an AP report, a large video screen flashed images of destruction and global warming, followed by photos of Adolf Hitler, Zimbabwe dictator Robert Mugabe and ... John McCain. Whoa there, dipstick. Number one, only your most sycophantic hangers-on give a crap about your political beliefs, and while I disagree strongly with McCain on some issues, it is repugnant to put him in the same class as two of the worst genocidal lunatics in the history of the world. Madonna has shown herself again to be nothing more than a dumb ... well, I can't say the word I want to say, but it rhymes with something a football team does when facing a fourth-and-long situation. Stay in England, scumbag.
