Hitting the spot

McCain campaign spokesman Tucker Bounds angrily condemned the segment of Madonna's concert in Cardiff on Saturday that appeared to draw a comparison between McCain, Hitler and Zimbabwean strongman Robert Mugabe.

"The comparisons are outrageous, unacceptable and crudely divisive all at the same time," Bounds said in a statement reported by Fox News.

Madonna's apparent swipe at McCain came during a performance of the song "Get Stupid", when the Republican contender's image was flashed up alongside images of destruction and global warming as well as Hitler and Mugabe.

For some bizarre reason the Beeb missed all this ... funny, that ..

McCain Spokesman Taylor Griffin bitchily said, “Celebrities stick together.”

That the actual campaign feels they have to respond to, er, Madonna shows, er, something other than strength, McCain ain't Hitler (doh) but then .. this was just a pop song.

And now the ADL is weighing in ..
