entry arrow9:48 PM | Britney for Bush

If one had to believe in celebrity endorsers in choosing who will best lead America for the next four years, what would your choice be?





Bruce "I'm for Kerry" Springsteen?



Or





Britney "I'm a Slave for Bush" Spears?



If I were an American, I'd choose the endorsement by the one who gave us "Born in the U.S.A." over any by a brainless ho, any day. I mean, geez, she can't even stay married for 24 hours once. And now she's pretty sure about Bush?



There's really no getting around it. Stupid people love Bush.

"You know, my instinct was, Where's my gun?" Kerry told me. "How do you fight back? I wanted to do something." That evening, sitting at home, he called an aide and said he wanted to go to New York that very night to help the rescuers...


And we all know what Bush did the first time he heard the news. He sat for -- how long? seven minutes? -- in a kindergarten classroom, paralyzed, and continued to read a book called My Pet Goat.



I call that decisive leadership.
