Being ashamed of the president is one thing, wishing death upon him is another.

I don't know what is more offensive, his remarks or the fact that this depressing loser still has a career. I thought he faded into obscurity years ago.

Oh no, somebody said they wished Bush had died instead of Reagan. WHO GIVES A CRAP. How is this any different than people kissing his ass like he was the Second Coming? It's just the extreme reversal of the opinion.

His comments were stupid, if only because of the inevitable investigation by the US government (don't they investigate all president death related stuff?). Sure, he's got the wrath of conservatives, but a lot of artists and actors nowadays do. Just like a lot of conservatives are targeted by liberals.

The difference between Morrissey and the Dixie Chicks is that he wasn't offending his core audience. The majority of country music fans are conservatives, and the Dixie Chicks insulted the hero of a lot of conservatives with their comments.

This got Morrissey back into the limelight, didn't it? No publicity is bad publicity. Hell, I thought the guy's career was over. I know teen angst is once again popular, but 40-something angst?

There is a huge difference between expressing dislike for someone and wishing them dead. The Dixie Chicks may have been stupid but the comparison doesn't wash. Look at it this way. there are two stereo types involved - all country fans and musicians are red-neck conservatives and rockers are all bleeding-heart liberals. Wow it isn't true.

Well, for one, me. I'm not saying he can't say that. I'm saying I'm going to call his sorry, no-talent ass out on it as several others have.

Because decent society encourages the positive support of others. They generally frown upon wishing death on others. Maybe you don't - who knows.

EDIT: My mistake, Leroy. I've edited to make it accurate.

What he said was an off-the-cuff remark. Maybe it was inapproriate... but in the grand scheme of things, it's not that big of a deal.

If people want to be outraged about it, then what's really amazing is they don't have better things to do with their time.

Edit: Fair enough, Reverend... I'm willing to pretend you never said it.

I don't see what everyone is getting so worked up about. Morrissey says lots of things that nobody listens to (i.e. his last few albums).

Besides, if he's talking, at least he's not singing, so everybody wins.

Have you seen this dude? He's 150 lbs. of soul-wretching, vomit-inducing, heartstring-tugging dynamo. No way would I step in the ring with that maniac.

Very well. I'll leave his comments about Bush alone (though I will remember this when one of you bitch about another's comments).

However, perhaps you will not feel so loving about Morrissey when you learn of his association with THIS GROUP!?!!?! A-HA!!

No? Nothing? Very well. I guess I'm just saying I hate Morrissey.

No, no, I thought his line was pretty trite as far as that sort of thing goes, albeit inoffensive. I just thought we were going to get a FRACAS~. The more he'd ignore you, the closer you'd get.

I don't think anyone's listened to him since The Smiths disbanded.

Morrissey has, and always will be, a pompus ass.

The only time I ever found myself entertained by that mopey twit was when Mike Nelson portrayed him on MST3K. "Hairdresser in a Coma" is the best Morrissey song he's never performed.

Did I mention that I cried?
