Immaterial Girl

We're stuck. Better call Madonna.

Celebrity political endorsements are silly. Entertainers and sports stars usually have no great insights into foreign or domestic policies – they’re just famous.  Clint Eastwood talking to an empty chair was a good idea because the chair didn’t talk back.

Madonna wasn’t so lucky. At her concert Saturday night in New Orleans, she said “I don’t care who you vote for as long as you vote for Obama.”

Some of the audience booed and some even walked out. Of course Madonna is a smart woman.  She quickly said “Seriously, I don’t care who you vote for… just don’t take this privilege for granted. Go vote.”

When politicians seek celebrity endorsements, they’re usually looking for two things: major campaign contributions and influence over voters who are too dumb to know that being famous does not equal political savvy.

Celebrities still available for endorsements: Casey Anthony, OJ Simpson, and Jerry Sandusky.

    What’s that famous Einstein quote? Only two things are infinite, the universe and human stupidity, and I’m not entirely certain about the first.

    Probably not exact, but close enough.
