Meat Puppet


Yesterday, Lady GaGa mystifyingly injected herself into the debate over the American military's "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" policy.

It's always enjoyable when an entertainer, particularly a pop singer, reaches that special level of self-obsession where he or she honestly thinks people should give a shit about his or her opinion on important issues.

I'd elaborate on this, but Patrice O'Neal hit it on the head perfectly a month or so ago on Opie and Anthony.



By the way, how ridiculous is that entire image of Lady GaGa, looking like a Muppet with Down Syndrome, fighting the power in front of a big-ass American flag?

She looks like that horrible old man from the Six Flags commercials.

Has Lady Gaga ever been seen in the same room with Marilyn Manson? They could be the same person. Just saying.

I think repeal makes sense - if someone wants to defend our country, why do we care who they love? But from a selling the repeal vote perspective, with friends like Lady Gaga...

I now have Backwater by the Meat Puppets in my head. And, for that, I thank you fully.

Good post. I especially find it amusing when entertainers run for office. What experience do they have exactly? Lady Gaga to run for Haiti president? She better watch her back, I betting PETA has her marked.
