Pretty exiting title, eh?
There’s recently been a slew of entertainer/politician hostility. We’ve got not one but, three stories about major figures in entertainers clashing with political figures. Let’ break it down.
Tom Petty vs. Michele Bachmann:Minnesota Congresswoman and GOP Presidential candidate Michele Bachmann has been on a hot streak recently, she’s polling well, making the rounds on cable TV and she’s a very close second right now, to Mitt Romney. She’s been rallying her supporters and after her speeches, like many politicians, she’s got victory song. In her case the Iowa native is blasting “American Girl” by Tom Petty.
and Tom Petty would like her to stop.
It hasn’t stopped her, she keeps playing it during her appearances. This is nothing new, Petty asked W. to stop playing “Won’t Back Down” during his campaigns.
Who’s side to take?: Petty’s, he’s from Jacksonville and his greatest hit’s CD went around the world with me. Bachmann’s people should know that in a GOP primary, it’s a conservative, country music play list anyways.
Jon Stewart vs. Herman Cain: Stewart is under fire for a bit on his TV show, that mocked a Herman Cain speech criticizing the length of the bills in Washington. Stewart put on a funny voice and flashed a billboard graphic that said “Herman Cain 2012, I don’t like to read”. FOX News had a field day with Stewart’s segment and said that the material was offensive.
Who’s Side to Take?: You decide…
Lindsay Lohan vs. The Fed: Check out this Tweet from Ms. Lohan who, must be cleaning up, if she’s chiming in on economic policy.
“Have you guys seen food and gas prices lately? U.S. $ will soon be worthless if the Fed keeps printing money!”
Who’s side to take?: Lohan’s. Yes, you should be agreeing with frequent acquaintance of the L.A.P.D. You don’t have to be an economist to know how inflation works. It would appear that Ms. Lohan had a moment of clarity on Twitter and perhaps, she’s turned a corner. Who knows? She might have public service in her future…., or community service.
