Material Girl covers [Weasel] Clark with praise
CNN ^ | 12/17/03 | CNN

Posted on 12/17/2003 12:55:43 PM PST by freedom44

LOS ANGELES, California (CNN) --The Material Girl has stepped onto the political stage and endorsed Democratic presidential hopeful Wesley Clark.

"I think he has a good handle on foreign policy, I think he's good with people, and I think he has a heart and a consciousness," pop singer Madonna said. "He's interested in spirituality -- I mean, those things mean a lot to me."

The singer and children's book author met Clark a few weeks ago for over an hour. In an interview recorded last week with CNN's Denise Quan, Madonna said they discussed his becoming president.

The singer told Quan she had decided to support the former general and she felt Clark was a natural-born leader.

"As it stands right now, he's got my support," Madonna said.

The two were introduced by "Bowling for Columbine" filmmaker Michael Moore, who was an early supporter of Clark.

Madonna said she saw a few television interviews with Clark and wanted to meet with him herself.

"I think to be the general for as long as he's been, this is a man who knows how to deal with pressure and make decisions under pressure," Madonna said.

Clark, a retired Army general, was NATO's supreme commander during the 1999 air war against Yugoslavia.

He testified Monday and Tuesday in the war crimes trial of former Yugoslav President Slobodan Milosevic, now held in The Hague. (Full story)

"We're delighted with the endorsement of a superstar for our four-star," said Matt Bennett, a Clark campaign spokesman.

Something about Modonna's kiss and Al & Tipper's kiss at the Dem Convention makes me think that Clark is going for Al Gore's base.

Yeah, right Madonna. We can tell spirituality is important to you, the way you have that crucifix dangling in your ample and over-exposed cleavage.

Madonna? a Children's book author?!? Oh, yeah...I forgot. Didn't she write "Hey Kids, Let's Get Naked"?
and "24 Dirty words for Kids to Learn"

Madonna, interested in Spirituality? She's almost as funny as Madeline Allbright.

If she succeeds in getting into his shorts, I hope she leaves a deposit there.

Is the "Material Girl" going to be changing her name to the "Spiritual Girl?"

I guess I'm referring to the Old Madonna, circa 1986.

RABBI SLAMS MADONNA'S KABBALAH OBSESSION


A respected Rabbi has spoken out about MADONNA's obsession with the
Kabbalah faith - insisting she has "lost the plot".
RABBI YITCHAK SCHOCHET of London's MILL HILL UNITED SYNAGOGUE
has derided the pop star's vocal support of the mystical offshoot of Judaism -
claiming Madonna, who was raised Roman Catholic, is "insulting" the Jewish
community with her ill-informed comment.
He fumes, "She will be insulting herself and all of the Jewish community. She
should stick with singing - what she is good at. You can only understand the
Kabbalah if you understand all of Judaism. If she thinks she can talk about
Kabbalah then she is making a fool of herself.
"If she purports to be explaining Kabbalah (with the book) then he has obviously
lost the plot.
"Kabbalah is an integral part of the Jewish faith, which is esoteric and
theocratic. You need years of study to understand it."

"You need years of study to understand it"
And thats what she is doing,Studeing!!
RABBI YITCHAK SCHOCHET!
Imagine everybody taking interest in the kabbalah, than our world would look much better and it doesnt metter who you are!!

Madanna is studying - but is she studying Kabbalah?
No - she is studying with a charlatan named Philip Berg, a former insurance salesman who has transformed into a "Kabbalah" salesman. His teachings are a corruption of Kabbalah with a weird emphasis on reincarnation and a primary emphasis on purchasing products from Rabbi (sadly he IS a rabbi) Berg and his family.
I hope Ms. Ritchie finds a good teacher and learns the truth - I do not doubt her sincerity.

LOL

I thought about that after I mentioned it.

I would guess Madonna is rather pan-religious and dilletante...terms which describe her sexuality well too.

"As it stands right now, he's got my support," Madonna said.

But... there's a subtle threat contained in the bimbo's support. "As it stands right now".... sounds like she's apt to pull her support any time he slips up. I guess at least for now he's got the aging whore's support.

Excellent question. But the evidence suggests that Wesley Clark suffers from multiple personality disorder, so I suppose it's possible for him to sell himself to multiple interests, one soul at a time.

Make Clark pay for this one. An interviewer with balls should ask:

1) "Does this mean Madonna could be on your ticket as VP?" And after the laughter dies out, ask it again "no seriously, you sought out her endorsement, to what point?"

2)"Is Madonna a singer who can lapdance, or a lapdancer who can sing?" :)

"he's interested in spirituality"

Translation: He has vague notions about religion which make for good cocktail-party conversation, but he's not one of those horrid right-wing Christian wackos who's against abortion and homosexuality. .

The cleavage is ample because there's not very much on either side of it. Madonna ain't no Dolly Parton.
