Ixnay on the Hitler/Ghandi Comparisons

Amid a four-act show at Cardiff’s packed Millennium Stadium, a video interlude carried images of destruction, global warming, Nazi dictator Adolf Hitler, Zimbabwe’s authoritarian President Robert Mugabe — and U.S. Senator John McCain. Another sequence, shown later, pictured slain Beatle John Lennon, followed by climate activist Al Gore, Mahatma Gandhi and finally McCain’s Democratic rival Barack Obama. (celebitchy.com)

Shhhh. No. You are pretty much not allowed to compare anyone to Hitler. Unless they are trying to create a world of super humans by exterminating everyone else on the planet. You are also not allowed to compare anyone to Gandhi. Unless they are a peaceful leader who puts his life in peril by starving himself to prove a point to their oppressive government. I love you Madge, but whatever your political affiliations sing "Where's The Party" and do what you do best, be Madonna. That is like when everyone was saying "Oh Britney is the next Madonna!' Look at what happened when people expect too much.
