Madonna kicks off `Sticky and Sweet' tour in UK

Quote:
CARDIFF, Wales (AP) - Even at 50, the queen of pop just can't stop courting controversy.

As Madonna kicked off her international "Sticky and Sweet" tour Saturday night, she took a none-too subtle swipe at the presumptive Republican nominee for U.S. president.

Amid a four-act show at Cardiff's packed Millennium Stadium, a video interlude carried images of destruction, global warming, Nazi dictator Adolf Hitler, Zimbabwe's authoritarian President Robert Mugabe - and U.S. Senator John McCain. Another sequence, shown later, pictured slain Beatle John Lennon, followed by climate activist Al Gore, Mahatma Gandhi and finally McCain's Democratic rival Barack Obama.
Stay classy...

sounds like a visual version of what Limbaugh does on his radio entertainment show every day to me

The difference being that people listen to Limbaugh FOR the bashing.

Madonna is working it into her show, and I can't help but wonder how many of her fans are rolling their eyes...

from all accounts, they screamed and applauded

I don't think she's going to lose many fans over it

(LOL - you're actually saying it's okay for one entertainer to bash and another not to do so? I'm surprised)

Hell McCain would still kiss her ass for a million dollar campaign contribution.

Madonna's got every right to put whatever stupid crap she wants on the screens during her concerts. But the absolute visciousness of trying to create a connection between Sen. McCain and Hitler & co. is low beyond belief. It's nothing short of intentionally lieing. Does the truth so scare the left that they have to obfuscate it with lies???

I don't go for that crap either. Hitler analogies are sort a cheap. I'll tell you what. I won't buy her album. Bitch. And I will spank her for saying such a thing. And I will spank her a long time.
