Madonna supports Wesley Clark.
Madonna ^ | 01/07/04 | Madonna

Letter From Madonna

I've never done this before. But life is about taking risks is it not? I know that people seem to pay attention to everything I do. Big or Small. Ridiculous or Sublime. So I am hoping they pay attention to this:

I am supporting General Wesley Clark for President.

Not only as a "celebrity" but as an American citizen and as a mother. I want my children to grow up with the same opportunities that I had – to know and understand what's going on in the world and to travel that world safely and with pride.

Now I'm asking you to join me.

I am writing to you because the future I wish for my children is at risk.

Our greatest risk is not terrorism and it's not Iraq or the "Axis of Evil." Our greatest risk is a lack of leadership, a lack of honesty and a complete lack of consciousness. Unfortunately our current government cannot see the big picture. They think too small. They suffer from the "what's in it for me?" syndrome. The simple truth is that the current administration has squandered incredible opportunities to bring the world together, to promote peace in regions that have only known war, to encourage health in places that are ravaged with disease, to make us more secure by living up to our principles at home and abroad. The simple truth is that the policies of our current administration do not reflect what is great about America.

Thankfully, there is now a candidate running for President who is committed to ensuring that our country lives up to its promise and its people. He is a decorated soldier and a respected diplomatic leader, who has already given 34 years to his country. He is smart and he is good. He has worked hard to get where he is and he is a national hero.

A perfect example of the American Dream.

I've never aligned myself with a presidential candidate during the primary season. But this time, the stakes are too high, we have too much to lose and there is so much work to be done.

I'm supporting General Wesley Clark in 2004 and have committed to do all that I can to help his campaign in the coming months. I ask you to visit his website today to learn about his candidacy, his vision for our nation and the many ways you can get involved.

I've looked at all the Democratic candidates. I respect them all for their dedication and patriotism. But I'm supporting Wes Clark because in him I see the qualifications, character and vision that we so desperately need.

We are a country with incredible promise. As Americans we enjoy opportunities like no other. Unfortunately we take these opportunities for granted. You may not agree with everything I say or do, but whether you're rich or poor, young or old, black or white, gay or straight, I know you share my concern and recognize the need for change.

Even if you've never been involved with politics before, please consider joining with me. If you can give, https://secure.clark04.com/"target="_blank"> give generously. If you can volunteer time, get involved now. And if you can vote, this time…make sure you do.

Wesley Clark has asked for my support and now I'm asking for yours

Madonna

Err... didn't she make her fame and fortune while Reagan was president?

Someone needs to inform Madonna that her kids are going to have whatever opportunities they want. She's filthy rich! Geez.

(Reminds me of Sarah Jessica Parker complaining about how her grandmother wouldn't be able to afford medication if Bush got elected. Sigh...)

This coming from the daughter of Satan himself. Note to Madonna - WHO CARES WHAT YOU THINK!!!!

This makes perfect and symmetrical sense. Madonna studies Jewish Mysticism (Kaballah) and Clark's part Jewish. Who should she support, Reverend Sharpton?

Yet, somehow I feel sorry for them.

Words of wisdom from an aging former diva, novelist of such monumental works as "Sex" and "Mr. Peabody's Apples", one-time art model, and former companion of Dennis Rodman and Sandra Bernhardt. We must take heed, because Madonna is worried about her childrens' future and the bad influence the Republicans may exert upon them.

MADONNA is accusing the BUSH administration of having "what's in it for me" syndrome?

That fails both the laugh test and the pot/kettle test.

Madonna thinks this administration suffers from the "what's in it for me" syndrome? Well, I guess she ought to know!

She is ridiculous. If she thinks anyone middle aged will listen to what she says she's wrong and kids think she's a joke.

My 12 year old son laughed at her new video with Brittney Spears. (Usually MTV is blocked at my house - I let them watch a special and forgot to reblock it. Kids are quick.)

What are those?? To pose naked for Playboy?? To become one the world's biggest media sluts??

Madonna should keep her mouth shut - somebody might notice her brains have fallen out - a long time ago.

By the way, she REALLY out to change that name - its a sacralege.

I read somewhere that Madonna has a high IQ; that is certainly not reflected in her letter supporting Clark, in which she exhibits both a basic ignorance of facts and an inability to reason.

Material Girl

Written by Peter Brown and Robert Rans

Some boys kiss me, some boys hug me
I think they're O.K.
If they don't give me proper credit
I just walk away

They can beg and they can plead
But they can't see the light, that's right
'Cause the boy with the cold hard cash
Is always Mister Right, 'cause we are

Living in a material world
And I am a material girl
You know that we are living in a material world
And I am a material girl

Some boys romance, some boys slow dance
That's all right with me
If they can't raise my interest then I
Have to let them be

Some boys try and some boys lie but
I don't let them play
Only boys who save their pennies
Make my rainy day, 'cause they are

Living in a material world
And I am a material girl
You know that we are living in a material world
And I am a material girl

Living in a material world (material)
Living in a material world
Living in a material world (material)
Living in a material world

Boys may come and boys may go
And that's all right you see
Experience has made me rich
And now they're after me, 'cause everybody's

Living in a material world
And I am a material girl
You know that we are living in a material world
And I am a material girl

A material, a material, a material, a material world

Living in a material world (material)
Living in a material world

LOL.

It's Clinton/Clark/Hollywood vs Dean/Gore/Green Party.

Hopelessly fractured party.

A marriage made in heaven.

Madonna loves Europe ...
and Clark loves Europe.

Clark on Hardball, via Khanreport
And I would say to the Europeans, I pledge to you as the American president that we’ll consult with you first. You get the right of first refusal on the security concerns that we have.”

Just another calebrity expecting the rest of us to bend over and grab our ankles whenever she opens that pie-hole of hers.

Yep, I'm REALLY convinced that I should throw (up) my support for Clark. BTW, this should have been a "barf alert".
