Music: Britney opening for Obama?
Excerpted from this post at Music
So Des Moines wants Britney Spears and/or Lee Greenwood to help kick off the 2008 Iowa caucuses in a nationally televised show that could be staged at a local theater or arena? Isn't the electorate already disgusted with the dog-and-pony show of politics? And this is supposed to help? Specifically, the Greater Des Moines Convention and Visitors Bureau is cooking up this plan to raise the profile of our caucuses -- no doubt to help solidify Iowa as FIRST in the national consciousness -- and "spark nationwide appreciation and understanding of the presidential nomination process." And Britney's on the shortlist. Hmmm. Why not throw Fergie in there while we're at it and really turn this show into an intellectual void -- if not an outright parody?
