Does anyone have the specific text of what Whoopie Goldberg said at the 'John John' fundraiser the other night?
I know that Chevy Chase called President bush a liar. Jon Bon Jovi called him a thug. Whoopie compared President Bush to her anatomy.
Despite the fact that the Friday New York Post and New York Times quoted the comments and how while holding a wine bottle Whoopi Goldberg made crude sexual references about the Presidents last name and her bush,

John Leguizamo's comparison of Hispanics supporting Republicans to "roaches for Raid" (Jodi Wilgoren, "Kerry's Celebrity Fund-Raiser Is a Huge Bash," The New York Times, 7/9/04) is not only shameful coming from a Latino, but a sad display of the anger and rage that Kerry surrogates are willing to display without thinking twice about the consequences of their actions.

Both Sens. John Kerry and John Edwards were on stage at Radio City Music Hall as the stars uttered their remarks. Neither candidate rebuked them. Kerry, in fact, said that every performer ``conveyed the heart and soul of America.''
Even a song written for the fundraiser captured the vehemence of the night. In Texas Bandido, John Mellencamp wrote: ``He's just another cheap thug that sacrifices our young. . . . You're going to get us killed with your little white lies.''
CBSs Early Show on Friday didnt mention the fundraiser, on ABCs GMA Claire Shipman simply trumpeted how John Kerry took the stage last night at Radio City Music Hall for a star-studded fundraiser and raised a whopping $7 million, and a full story on NBCs Today managed to avoid mentioning any of the crudity or hate speech.
"I want Bush out, and Kerry in." said Chevy Chase.

According to media accounts, the performers took the stage to call the President of the United States a 'liar,' a 'cheap thug who sacrifices our young,' and 'a killer.' I look forward to today when Senator Kerry tells the people of West Virginia and New Mexico that he sees hate and vitriol as America's heart and soul. I doubt anyone will be celebrating."
Ouch. I think Senator Edwards should dump Kerry's makeup artist and go back to his old one.
Chevy Chase looks terrible.
As always, lol.
He appears to be a washed up actor..possibly abusing drugs and alcohol.
He must have snorted a few too many lines of coke before the occasion.
I am going to boycott these people for the rest of my life period. It's a personal thing for me it's the only way I know to strike back at this Hollywood idiosy. I'm not asking anyone else to to this, it's my way of striking back.
As a Massachusetts resident I sent Kerry an E-mail last Friday to his senate office complaining about what went on.
I have not received a reply,even a mass mailing type.
That's what he thinks about his constituents!!!
From Matt LaBash's article in the Weekly Standard
Did you hear Chase's comments on the election? Totally banal, I'll try to find them. I think Laura Ingraham has them on heavy rotation.
As I've said in other posts--I wish the Bush campaign could get a hold of the tape of this celebrity-liberal-lovefest and play a few (cleaned-up) snippets of this crap in a Bush campaign ad.
