Y'all better vote for f--king Obama, OK? For better or for worse, all right? We have a black Muslim in the White House. Now that's some amazing s--t. . . . It means there is hope in this country. And Obama is fighting for gay rights, so support the man, g--------t.
Called on the carpet by the cultural powers-that-be, Madonna explained that of course she was joking about the Muslim part. But she added: "Yes, I know Obama is not a Muslim -- though I know that plenty of people in this country think he is. And what if he were? The point I was making is that a good man is a good man, no matter who he prays to."
What's escaped the notice of our profane political philosopher is that Muslims, by and large, are not known for their support of gay rights. So if that's required in her definition of "a good man," then she's got a problem. One can hardly blame her, though, for falling for a myth that's been perpetrated by so many members of the religious and political left -- people who, unlike pop stars, are expected to give more than 30 seconds' worth of thought to these issues before sounding off on them.
