It's Not Just Kanye

I see that when liberals get together, even to raise money to help flood victims in New Orleans, they can't leave their hate for Republicans (and President Bush in particular) at the door. This from Rolling Stone online...

New Orleans descended on New York for two concurrent concerts, dubbed From the Big Apple to the Big Easy, Tuesday night to raise money for the victims of Hurricane Katrina...

... A few artists angrily denounced government officials for their slow response to Katrina's devastation. "I Wish New Orleans was dry and Washington was underwater," said Tom Waits.

Bette Midler had even stronger words: "I got a letter from the Republican Party the other day. I wrote back, 'Go f--k yourself.'" She then added, "George Bush is a fan of mine -- he came to see me in the Seventies. His coke dealer brought him."
Isn't that classy? Even when the situation isn't about them, they can't help but take the stage and put their face (and hatred for the Right) front and center. We learn more and more about the failures of the local and state leaders, but these lib celebs still hammer home the "Hate George Bush" message. Must make the Left so proud.

Actually, it probably does. And that's all the worse.
