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

She said worse things. I'm so disappointed in her.

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.
