McCain appeared at the kick-off of her "Sweet and Sticky" tour last night. Well, kinda. His photo was presented. Trouble is, it appeared with Adolf Hitler and Robert Mugabe, (Zimbabwe's dictator) in video footage filled with images of destruction.
The photo collages ran during her song, "Get Stupid."
The rest of the show, according to the San Francisco Chronicle was vintage Madonna:
Sequins, fishnets, and bondage-style outfits drawn from the 3,500 items of clothing reportedly whipped together by 36 designers specifically for the tour.
The response from the McCain team? Spokesman Taylor Griffin simply said, "Celebrities stick together."
Late yesterday, another McCain spokesman was a little more heated in his response.
"The comparisons are outrageous, unacceptable and crudely divisive all at the same time," said Tucker Bounds. "It clearly shows that when it comes to supporting Barack Obama, his fellow worldwide celebrities refuse to consider any smear or attack off limits."
