More celebrity news to chew on... No, not that kind. This round comes courtesy of Madonna. Over the weekend, the Material Girl took a major swipe at John McCain during a kick-off concert to launch her new tour. During the song "Get Stupid", an on-stage video flashed a succession of shots of Adolf Hitler, Zimbabwe's embattled dictator Robert Mugabe, and John McCain, along with images of environmental destruction. The video ended with shots of John Lennon, Al Gore, Mahatma Gandhi and Barack Obama. Subtle contrast, right?
The McCain campaign shot back yesterday. Spokesman Tucker Bounds called the comparisons "outrageous, unacceptable and crudely divisive all at the same time." He continued: "It clearly shows that when it comes to supporting Barack Obama, his fellow worldwide celebrities refuse to consider any smear or attack off limits."
