Bette Midler's Real Priority.

Two concerts given by members of the entertainment industry were produced yesterday under the title: "From The Big Apple To The Big Easy". The mission of the advertised mission of these concerts was to raise money to help the victims of hurricane Katrina. As usual, what wasn’t mentioned ahead of time was the parallel mission of providing stars, (who have an overblown sense of self-importance), the opportunity to expose their brainwashed liberal, Anti-Bush views to the unsuspecting public.

In a story found here, here are some of the ugly comments these "stars" felt that they had to make, while pretending to be all about helping the unfortunate victims of Katrina:

Political chatter was kept to a minimum at both events, with performers mostly sticking to the program: championing aid for New Orleans. But a few artists angrily denounced government officials for their slow response to Katrina's devastation. "I Wish New Orleans was dry and Washington was underwater," said Tom Waits. Bette Midler had even stronger words: "I got a letter from the Republican Party the other day. I wrote back, 'Go fuck yourself.'" She then added, "George Bush is a fan of mine -- he came to see me in the Seventies. His coke dealer brought him."

There was nothing but love for one former Oval Office resident, however: Bill Clinton's surprise appearances at both concerts were greeted with long standing ovations. He spoke of the urgent need to get money to the hurricane victims, and reminisced that "the first time I saw a building over two stories tall was in New Orleans, when I was three years old." He then introduced John Fogerty, who Clinton said "captured the soul of New Orleans," despite being born in Northern California.

So, "The Babys" leader, Tom Waits, wants Washington DC to be underwater, what a whiner. Who would have thought a baby to be capable of such violent, evil malice of thought?!

Then we get the overweight, washed out, has-been: Bette Midler and her vulgar comments. It’s not like she was ever that big of an icon in the ‘70s to begin with. But, in her mind, she was, (and sadly she still thinks she is), a big star. So big, in fact, that she attracted George W. Bush as a "fan".

She actually began her diatribe with the disclaimer that she was not about "picking on President Bush." And then went on to slander his reputation with her lame joke that he was a fan who attended one of her concerts in the 1970’s, compliments of his "coke dealer".

In retrospect, if any one back then was likely to be all about snorting cocaine, my money would be on big Bette. In fact, while you might have found young "W" with a beer in his hand, you would have also likely found Bette with the residue of cocaine on her nostrils and lips backstage after a show.

Hey, maybe she had a hallucination back then that included "W". Hence, her arrogant joke.

I wonder has it yet occurred to Bette Midler that not only was her comments not funny, but they also served to expose her anti-American attitude to her audience? After all, nothing says, "I’m a good American who loves my country", like slandering the reputation of your country’s President.

Way to go Bette!

If we all lived in an ideal world, then American citizens would take note, and refuse to attend any future "we care" concerts from the Hollywood/Entertainment crowd. After all, these events aren’t so much about charity as they are about providing this group of people, (who have over-blown opinions of their self-worth beyond scripts and lyrics), the opportunity to shove their spoon-fed political viewpoints down the throats of their unsuspecting attendees.

It would serve them right.

Sadly, that won’t happen. The fickle American public will always bow at the alter of Hollywood and Rock ‘N Roll.

What A Shame.

It would appear that the "Wind Beneath Bette's Wings" comes from a force that is sheer hatred for President Bush and the American way of life. this "Rose" authentic?
