Bette’s Coke Jab Real Party Pooper (BETTE MIDLER GETS BOOED IN NYC FOR BUSH COCAINE JAB!
NY Daily News ^ | 9/21/05

Posted on 09/21/2005 1:59:21 PM PDT by areafiftyone

Bette Midler struck one of the few sour notes at last night's Madison Square Garden benefit for Hurricane Katrina victims when she made a joke about President Bush.

"I know George Bush. . . . I met him in the 1970s through his coke dealer," she said.

The crowd booed the not-so-divine Ms. M for the quip.

She dropped the anti Bush rant and went on to the Katrina victims without skipping a beat. She's a real pro. LOL

There are so many celebs I used to like just fine- until they opened their mouths about politics.

Oh, well- scratch yet another one off the list. "Shut Up & Sing" comes to mind.

Ugly, ugly, fag hag.

My favorite was when Nick Nolte was asked what it was like making out with her in Down and Out in Beverly Hills and he said something like: "When I'm home I kiss my dog every morning."

Another thread, linked from Drudge, suggests that she was more verbose, and filthy-mouthed, than this snippet.

Know your audience, Bette. That's not a good joke to make when you're doing a Log Cabin Republican benefit.

Mrs. Midler...Watch the President's Speeches, Listen to His radio addresses, Look up pictures of him with citizens,statesmen/women and soldiers....

You DON'T KNOW President George W. Bush...and apparently Never Will, either!

This rabid political opportunism is out of control. It's time for closet Republicans, in Hollywood and all points beyond, to dust-off the mothballs of intimidation and apathy and speak out in support of this fine President and administration. I'm fed up with the level of importance given to all these simple entertainers and their knee-jerk uninformed opinion.

(I posted this rant elsewhere but I desperately need to shout it again.)

Rush and Hannity both played the audio of her tirade (with the f-bomb bleeped out, of course). I heard nothing but thunderous applause and cheering for everything she said.

Note to hysteric moron Leftists. When you are at a charity fund raiser keep your idiotic political opinions to yourselves. When you use this charity event as yet another forum for yet another Bush bashing rant, 64 MILLION Bush votes snap their checkbooks closed and say "Screw YOU losers". There is a time and place for everything, this was neither.

One radio/tv report early this morning said the Organization behind the benefit activities got many calls from people wishing to withdraw their pledges, specifically due to Midler's commentary.

When will these Captain Ahab nutters hit bottom?

Seems an endless pit. They fall deeper and deeper and offer nothing but pathological hatred all the way down.

Keep talking Bette, Keep talking.

You serve us well.

Hmmmmmm? Didn't Hillary provide a clip with only cheers when she did an appearance in Albany NY? MTV edited the Boos out.

My daughter was in gymnastic camp with her's years ago, they were about 13 yrs old, Bette's daughter complained about the food, the beds, ect, so much, that she called mommy to leave.

Of course Mommy picked her up right away!

You can hear a few boo's in the audio I heard. The cheers really drown out the boos though.

Reporters from the NY Daily News must have been in the audience and heard them. The NY Daily News loves Bette Midler and would not say she was booed if she wasn't. They must have been shocked to hear it.

"Oh, well- scratch yet another one off the list"

If I boycotted every entertainer who said or did something stupid regarding politics my life would be almsot completely devoid of of movies and television. Which probably wouldn't be a huge loss now that I think of it.

"In another political jab, Cyril Neville, of the Neville Brothers, wore a T-shirt that said, "Ethnic Cleansing in New Orleans." "

I really don't understand why these so-called 'celebrities' think they are so intelligent. They sound totally insecure and idiotic! But they are truly too stupid to realize it.

Why should we be surprised? The stars run with the socialist crowd all the time. Anytime they get out in public and talk they are bound to say the same thing they say inside their little pinko cliques. BTW, I wonder who is selling to Bette these days. If Midler is a narcotic tea totaler then I'm a Mexican astronaut.

You know what really amazes me about all of this, is that with as much as the media tries to inflate the nation's sour opinion of Bush, anytime one of these liberal wackos insults him in public, its the American public that always booes them off the stage.

Someone is doing some serious spinning.
