I personally feel they are from a completely different demographic than I so I don't pay to close attention to who supports who. However, sounds like it would have been a great concert.
Was watching Bill Marh (SP?) the other evening and he mentioned that Britney Spears and Jessica Simpson are Bush supports. He said something like "two stupidest people on earth". Not sure if that is an exact quote but thought it was kind of amusing.
You're right in that it doesn't make any difference what a celebrity thinks. They DO, however, have the right to give voice to their opinions. I've never understood the venom that pours out of people when a celebrity talks about politics. They are citizens, too. I notice, though, that if the celebrity is liberal, then they are supposed to shut up but if they are not, then they are patriotic.
I wish more people would take your approach and do their own research...from a *variety* of sources, not just the ones that tell them what they want to hear.
I agree with you I really don't care who celebrities vote or heck even my neighbor for that matter. What always disappoints me is one, they often make themselves look stupid for not really knowing what they are talking about, and two, the people who then get outraged that they voiced an opinion.
Was interesting the Eagles had a concert here in Wyoming, Big Cheney, country. Joe Walsh made a negative comment about the presidency, he was mildly booed, and that was it. We went on having a great time. As an Independent I often feel overwhelmed here with the republican POV. Was nice to see them have such a great response from a WY audience. I think Joe Walsh or whoever has a right to voice their opinion, though I wish they wouldn't use their entertainment to do so. I also think an appropriate response is a right. To be total jerks for example to Linda Ronstad is another thing. Just my opinion. I know some feel a lot different about it and hope no one takes offense.
I've raised her this way on purpose. I want her to use critical thinking and not just take what is spoon fed as absolute truth. Of course, I pay the price as there is NOTHING that she will not challenge me on, lol.
It's all good. She's got a good brain, I want her to use it.
*whisper* Personally, I'm with *your* daughter...
Yup--at those prices, I don't need hear their political opinions (especially since The Boss and I are on opposite ends of the spectrum)
