This just in: a NY Daily News column reports that Kid Rock supports the imminent war on Iraq.

..."Why is everybody trying to stop the war? George Bush ain't been saying, 'You all, make s***y records.' Politicians and music don't mix. It's like whisky and wine. [Musicians] ought to stay out of it."

"We got to kill that mother-[bleeper] Saddam. Slit his throat. Kill him and the guy in North Korea."

"[Celebrities] got money, you sit around talking about peace. People who don't have money need some help."...

Speaking of celebrity Iraq commentary, I caught a bit of Janeane Garofalo getting bitch-slapped by "Fox & Friends" flunky, Brian Kilmeade. Comrade Garofalo has been hitting the cable TV circuit frequently, pushing her special brand of conspiracy lunacy. Until yesterday, most every talk show host let her rants go largely unchallenged. It took a morning show lightweight like Kilmeade, someone who usually gabs away in fawning puff pieces with athletes and airy celebs, to straight-arm her back into Planet Earth. It was a welcome sight after watching Garofalo make outlandish "vast right-wing conspiracy" charges on Fox News Sunday, then chastise host Tony Snow for not fessing up. As she put it, "Oh, don't pretend that this is like some crazy conspiracy theory!"

Of course, Kilmeade's rebuke will likely be used by Comrade Garofalo as further evidence of the media's attempt to discredit her. Frankly, I think she's doing a good job of it all by herself.
