Bette Midler--shut up and sing

From a Katrina relief concert: Bette Midler said--- "I got a letter from the Republican Party the other day. I wrote back, 'Go f#$@ yourself.'" She then added, "George Bush is a fan of mine -- he came to see me in the Seventies. His coke dealer brought him."

Is there some sort of Bush bashing prerequisite in order to perform at these benefits? What's even more odd is that Clinton appeared at two concerts, this one included and was lauded with a multi-minute standing ovation. Obviously there is no point attempting to refute the "celebri-activists," because they do not offer a reasoned argument, it is pure vitriol.

Made me think of this---
'The idiot who praises, with enthusiastic tone, / All centuries but this, and every country but his own.'"

BTW, the $200 billion that the federal government has planned to extract from the rest of the tax payers and give to the Katrina affected region is enough to give every single person (500,000) that was displaced by Katrina a check for $400,000.00.
That makes sense, right?
