Madonna vs. McCain: It’s (Sadly) On (Video)

 

On the first date of her Sticky and Sweet tour on Saturday in Cardiff, UK, (that’s a pretty gross name for a tour featuring a performer the same age as my parents) Madonna, marginally important pop-shocktress, played a video juxtaposing images of Hitler, Zimbabwe’s president Robert Mugabe, and global warming with images of John McCain. Way to go Madonna. You were able to marginalize victims of the Holocaust and Zimbabwe’s internal strife by claiming that an old man who may not even end up as president is just as horrible. Bravo!


Of course, McCain’s campaign condemned the video. But they also took umbrage with that portion of the video that showed images of Al Gore, John Lennon, Gandhi, and Barack Obama. Again, Madonna pulled off a coup here. A guy who may not be president (especially after a suspect VP pick) gets compared to Gandhi, someone who actually did impact the world.


McCain’s camp should have ignored the video, and said Who’s Madonna? McCain only listens to relevant artists. [Daily Swarm]

How did she ever come up with all of those lyrics! That audience sure got their money's worth! I guess I will vote for Obama because Madonna told me so ... yeah right ... HA.

McCain wholeheartedly supports a war that has benefited millionaire profiteers and killed untold thousands of INNOCENT Iraquis. Madonna is only highlighting an obvious connection (Hitler/McCain), one that a more politically correct crowd cannot make. Yeah Madonna! People have been wishing she'd shrivel up and die for a quarter century now. She rocks.

stephen

you know who else supported a war that benefited war profiteers and killed MILLIONS of innocent people? fdr. what a bastard.

You're comparing ww2 to Iraq? Seriously? Pro-war delusion syndrome is what they call that. Good luck with your illness.

stephen

Stop saying she compared them! Shes not comparing Obama to Ghandi or McCain to Hitler.

It the first section, she shows people who did (or who may, based on her opinions) made some kind of destruction in the world,
then in the second shows people who did (or will in her opinion) good for the world.

Thats all.

Tyler

Why don't you explain how a the war has benefited millionaire profiteers? My guess is you can't - I'm sure you heard a talking head on CNN say something similar and now you believe it. It's not surprising that you would congratulate Madonna for associating McCain with Hitler.

Hey Stephen

Kudos to Madonna once again for her brilliant skills at pushing people's buttons and selling more concert tickets. Keep reacting, you Republican Bush loving fools, Madonna's pushing your buttons like she intended and you're helping her become more famous and rich. Ha, ha! She's singing and laughing all the way to the bank.

Anthony

Thanks Tyler for putting it all in perspective.

Madonna is a woman of her time. I just saw fragments of the video as it is shown here. She is the must important female pop singer ever. Although we can be agree or disagree with her ideas she point to the issues that can have a strong impact in our society. As she did before with sexual and religious themes , now she is showing war, poverty, and many people who have had a strong impact in contemporary society with those who can have it in the future. Bravo Madonna because you are using your art to make people to THINK and that is why you are relevant over other artist. Madonna is a PERFORMER of her time!
