Opening Arguments

Like a virgin

I think the McCain camp is reacting the wrong way:

John McCain's campaign hit back at Madonna on Sunday after the pop diva kicked off her world tour with a concert that bracketed the US presidential candidate with Adolf Hitler.

McCain campaign spokesman Tucker Bounds angrily condemned the segment of Madonna's concert in Cardiff on Saturday that appeared to draw a comparison between McCain, Hitler and Zimbabwean strongman Robert Mugabe.

"The comparisons are outrageous, unacceptable and crudely divisive all at the same time," Bounds said in a statement reported by Fox News.

Are McCain's advisers political virgins or what? Any anti-McCain comments by Madonna -- especially ones as silly and tiresome as these -- will gain McCain more sympathy than they lose him votes. Save the outrage for a more worthy target.

Absolutely nobody cares what Madonna and Barbara Steisand think ...except Madonna and Barbara Streisand.

Well, that statement was 100% true until Tucker "Leapsand" Bounds stepped in it right up to his a$$. I guess he was sort of ...ahem, out-of-bounds.
