Linda Ronstadt Loses

The singer once again speaks her mind on politics:

Don't get her started on the recent presidential election. "People don't realize that by voting Republican, they voted against themselves," she says. Of Iraq in particular, she adds, "I worry that some people are entertained by the idea of this war. They don't know anything about the Iraqis, but they're angry and frustrated in their own lives. It's like Germany, before Hitler took over. The economy was bad and people felt kicked around. They looked for a scapegoat. Now we've got a new bunch of Hitlers."

Go ahead, Linda, and smear one half of the electorate. But in doing so, you lose.

Hat tip One Hand Clapping.

On a side note -- I'm getting a little tired of doing all these posts pointing out members of the left. Does anyone have good examples from the right side of the political spectrum? I'm always looking for suggestions -- post them up right here in the open suggestion thread..
