My personal musings about anything that gets on my radar screen--heavily dominated by politics.


When This Is What Your Friends Are Saying About You . . .

maybe you should stop congratulating yourself so much.

Try to guess which media outlet all of these quotes are from.

But that did not stop criticism of the event from many who asked why rock stars — with their jet-setting, high-consumption lifestyles — should be asking others to be more environmentally friendly. . . .

U.S. and British media were generally underwhelmed on Sunday by Live Earth, . . ..

The News of the World tabloid, Britain’s biggest-selling newspaper, detailed estimates of Madonna’s carbon emissions from nine houses, a fleet of cars, a private jet and the Confessions tour, calling her a “climate-change catastrophe.” . . .

“The last thing the planet needs is a rock concert,” Who lead singer Roger Daltrey recently told a British newspaper. . . .

Still, some — like Muse frontman Matthew Bellamy — have criticized the use of private jets for artists. . . .

[from Chris Rock] “I pray that this event ends global warming the same way that Live Aid ended world hunger,” he said in London.

Got it yet? And without, that is, following all the links?

The source of all these quotes is, arguably, the most Al Gore-friendly media outlet on the face of the Earth--MSNBC.

Yes, Mr. Gore. This is what your friends are saying about your grand event.


Heh, heh, heh.
