The Sensitive Crowd Comments (4)

Amd_against_mosqueBigotry hiding behind sensitivity

Big protest at the site of Park51, the "Ground Zero mosque" that isn't at Ground Zero and isn't primarily a mosque, 1,000 against and 200 for.

Amd_for_mosque Among those against, a sign that read, "Obama, your middle-name is Hussain, we understand. Bloomberg, what's your excuse." [A few sics required there.]

Anyone who would see that sign and stand with it is a bigot. It's not about being sensitive to 9/11 families and it's not because Ground Zero is hallowed (just wait until that hallowed new building goes up filled with tons of businesses not signed off on by the families), it's because most people in this country believe that Islam = terrorism. Some of them at least admit it.

Ironic touch: Protesters against the mosque blared "Born in the USA." Still too dumb after all these years to know the meaning of Bruce Springsteen's song.

UPDATE: Even "the most conservative man in Congress," Ron Paul, is on the side of Park51, stating:

"If Islam is further discredited by making the building of the mosque the issue, then the false justification for our wars in the Middle East will continue to be acceptable."

The Silencing Of Debbie Perry Comments (7)

Via Towleroad: Those rainforest bashes, like the rainforest itself, are always a hot mess (in a good way)!

PreviewScreenSnapz001The rag-tag mix of Lady GaGa, Elton John, Bruce Springsteen, Shirley Bassey (who never gets a solo line), Sting and Debbie Harry (who also never gets a solo line and looks like she might challenge David Vitter for re-election) covering Journey's "Don't Stop Believin'" (a song I could live without ever hearing again) is pretty charming—love GaGa's Leigh Bowery twist.

A wonderful way to end 

It's also nice to see Goldie Hawn back to her go-go roots at the end. Will she one day be a 106-year-old survivor talking about the relatively early days of TV while still dancing past the century mark? If only she and Madonna had done Chicago...woulda been SWELL.

Speaking of which, remember Madonna's rainforest perfs from the past? No?

Us (February 15, 2010) has the ultimate "A-List Abs Quiz" with guts (or lack thereof) belonging to everyone from  Taylor Lautner to Bruce Springsteen. I'm not sure what it says about the printing that Will Smith's torso is not instantly identifiable, but it's fun looking at anyway.

Bruce Springsteen has endorsed marriage equality in New Jersey as a civil-rights issue. Rock on! It's good to know he's down, down, down, down with it.
