So Sting - a musician - is now throwing his celebrity-weight behind Obama. He thinks he's great. There's no policy analysis here, just Sting saying, essentially, "I met him and, gosh, he's really neat."
Whoopty-flipping-do! WHO CARES!
Not me, of course. Celebrities coming out and expecting us to listen to them on issues because of their celebrity status really annoy me.
Don't get me wrong. Celebrities have the right to an opinion, and the right to express it. And if they can back up the opinion with reason and logic, that's wonderful. The best example of that in American history is Ronald Reagan's speech entitled "A Time for Choosing," which was delivered 45 years ago yesterday in support of Barry Goldwater for president. If you want to recharge your conservative batteries - and see the type of celebrity support that we should all care about - link here.
