Madonna Pisses off McCain Campaign

Read this article about Madge launching her new world tour and the complaints from the McCain campaign.

Now the great irony: Madonna is now under contract with Live Nation, the Clear Channel spinoff that has Clear Channel's executives on its Board of Directors.

Clear Channel's Lowry Mays is a staunch Republican, who strongly encourages his executives to donate to Republican campaigns. I've heard stories of him buttonholing them at various company functions and reminding them to tithe some 10 percent of their salaries to the cause.

Politics and music, such strange bedfellows.
