Internet-unsavvy Presidential candidate John McCain is steamed at Madonna, whose Sticky + Sweet Tour kicked off over the weekend in the UK. Apparently an image of the Straight Talk Express’ driver is flashed during a video montage of baddies that also includes Zimbabwean dictator Robert Mugabe and baddie-of-all-baddies Adolf Hilter! (Barack Obama, meanwhile, is placed alongside John Lennon, Mahatma Gandhi, and Al Gore.) Instead of realizing that because Madonna broke Godwin’s Law any further argument was, in fact, moot, McCain’s campaign released a snippy statement via Fox News (sigh) that said in part “It clearly shows that when it comes to supporting Barack Obama, his fellow worldwide celebrities refuse to consider any smear or attack off limits.” Wouldn’t a counterpoint by Ted Nugent have been a lot more succinct? Anyway, before you think this is just another boring “Madonna gets ‘political’” news item, there’s also Britney Spears-related news coming out of the tour! Which is, just, so much better, you guys.
Here’s the video segment Spears shot a few months back for inclusion on the tour, set to one of Madonna’s best mid-career tracks, “Human Nature”:
Not to stoke the ire of all the fanboys out there, but Madonna’s voice is sounding a little rough, no?
