I like a lot of popular female artists, including Sade, Cindy Lauper, Annie Lennox, and Bonnie Tyler. What you, and other people here don't seem to get, is that unless the political views of an artist overly infringe upon their artistic work, e.g. Tim Robbins, then who cares?. For example, I can certainly appreciate The Boss and The Piano Man, even though they support the eevvviiiilllll Obama! :eek:
And, if you think Sweet Sarah will be president in 2012, I'll certainly take that bet. :D

CW, I don't care about her politics. I'm a Beatles fanatic. We all know what a hardcore conservative John was. Her sluttiness aside, she's just not that talented. She never was. Her sluttiness is what made her famous.Loyalty Binds Me- Motto of Richard III

I have to respectfully disagree with the majority.
I have no clue why she is making a statement about Palin at this time. Maybe because she IS on the downside of her career and any press is good press. Historically, she has not been a raving liberal by any means.
But she did have talent. There are lots of ways to measure talent. Some have great voices. Hers was good. Some have great dancing. She was good. Some write their own music. Not her.
Her talent was to take music written by someone else, figure out the pulse of the world and transform it to a show that turned people on. I admit as an amatuer musician I respect her for her abilities in show business. She walked the walk and talked the talk.
And I agree that Palin will probably be a footnote in 2050 while some people will still remember Madonna. Neither will last to 2100.
Lastly, who gives a darn about what show business people say? I really don't. Unless they do this crap onstage in which case I will not pay to see them. I pay for entertainment and their political views don't belong on stage with their show.

Well there's no man for Madonna.

That's what you get, Madge, for being such a hateful and self-centered bitch. I hope Guy takes you to the cleaners.

Sarah Palin got to be Mayor and Governor on her own merits, all Madonna can do is be a slut...and these days she cant even do that properly.
Sarah Palin has been married to the same man for decades, Madonna changes her men more often than she changes her panties.
Sarah Palin is a dynamic, brilliant woman, Madonna is on the skids and on the way down
Sarah Palin has friends, Madonna has hangers on.
Sarah Palin has faith and Christ, Madonna has Kabbalah until she changes to some other trendy religion / fad / belief system / scam.
Sarah Palin, even if she is not elected to the VP office, will still be Governor of Alaska and will influence many places and people, all Madonna will do is "Best of" albums
Sarah Palin will build roads, Madonna's career is roadkill.

Aww, poor Palin!
Now, she won't get to see a hideous, cantankerous woman in her early fifties strutting around on stage, dressing and dancing like an 18 year old! sarc.

Before you can do things for people, you must be the kind of man who can get things done. But to get things done, you must love the doing, not the people!
