Linda Ronstadt: Impeach Bush 'Right Away'

1970's songbird Linda Ronstadt, best known for her torch song-style and mellow ballads, is working overtime these days trying to persuade her fellow Arizonans that it's time to dump President Bush "right away."

In an interview broadcast on Saturday, Ronstadt was in the middle of explaining to WABC Radio's Mark Simone why she prefers living in Arizona to Los Angeles or New York, when she added one caveat.

"The politics are very conservative here and I'm not conservative. I'm having a hard time sometimes convincing people that we need to vote for a new president," she offered.

When Simone begged to differ, the singer insisted, "We need a different president right away, I think. I think we should impeach this one [rather than wait for] the next election."

Asked if she could support Sen. John Kerry despite his admission that he committed war crimes in Vietnam, Ronstadt told Simone, "I don't know about that? He might be a little more understanding of what these guys [U.S. GIs in Iraq] are going through."

I thought she was more famous for her work with the Stone Ponies, and trying to lay Jerry "moonbeam" brown.

Someone seeking impeachment less than 6 months from the election doesn't sound like someone very confident of an impending John Kerry presidency.

Based on recent photos, the last time she had a hit was about 100 pounds ago.

But if Bush is impeached (highly unlikely in the present circumstances), Dick Cheney becomes President....

Take care what you ask for. Self-inflicted wounds in the foot are doubly painful. So far, Linda is merely sounding foolish.

Atta gal, Linda!  Why let facts get in the way of a good argument?

Linda's got a great voice but politically she's, um, weak-minded.

After reading the title I was going to post "Why should we listen to an ex-singer with two brain cells" but after reading this, I feel that I overrated her mental capacity.

Hey, Linda! Why don't you go sleep with Jerry Brown again, and STFU?

She doesn't want to wait for the election? She has a short memory. Impeachment doesn't happen quickly. The election would be over before the impeachment even started.

As one great conservative woman has said, Shut up and sing. May I request "Far, Far, Away" for starters.

As a singer she was wonderful. Her politics were always shallow and left wing. In fact her discussions on any subject outside of singning were shallow. In the 80s she was telling people to vote against Reagan and support nuclear freeze.

Earth calling Ms. Rondstat: Your 15 minutes of fame are up--any effort to grab more fame by blurting out inanities will lead to a permanent on Hollywood Squares (or CBS News Evening new anchor--about as equally entertaining and absurd).
