  • What Would Linda Do?

       July 19, 2004

    Two months ago, Mr. Hat reported that singer Linda Ronstadt had at last broken her silence on the presidential election.

    While many in this great nation rejoiced, apparently Linda has taken it a step too far.

    Before singing "Desperado" for an encore Saturday night, the 58-year-old rocker called Moore a "great American patriot" and "someone who is spreading the truth." She also encouraged everybody to see the documentary about President Bush.
    Ronstadt's comments drew loud boos and some of the 4,500 people in attendance stormed out of the theater. People also tore down concert posters and tossed cocktails into the air.
    It was a very ugly scene," Aladdin President Bill Timmins told The Associated Press. "She praised him and all of a sudden all bedlam broke loose."
    Timmins, who is British and was watching the show, decided Ronstadt had to go for good. Timmins said he didn't allow Ronstadt back in her luxury suite and she was escorted off the property.

    I'm sure folks like Elton John will point to this as more crushing of dissent. I, however, choose to view it as an affirmation that the American people are not all hoity-toity easty-coasty elites.

    Thank god!

    This Timmins guy is great.

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    "Timmins told Las Vegas Sun gossip columnist Timothy McDarrah: "We live in a city where people come from all over the world to be entertained. We hired Ms. Ronstadt as an entertainer, not as a political activist.

    "Whether you are politically on the left or on the right is not the point. She went up in front of the stage and just let it out. This was not the correct forum for that."

    Timmins said she was wrong to bring her politics to the stage.

    "If she wants to talk about her views to a newspaper or in a magazine article, she is free to do so. But in a stage in front of four and a half thousand people is not the place for it."

    Here, here, Mr. Timmons. Of course, the idiot media is going to try to make you out to be a "fascist," and they'll likely try to accuse you of being a "partisan bush supporter."

    It's a sad day and age that we live in, isn't it? I, for one, am on your side, regardless of who you support in the presidential election.
