"I don't have much respect for Bush" - Avril

According to this shocking report about an Avril Lavigne press conference from last month:

Canadian superstar... Avril Lavigne... recently made some brave and outspoken comments about the war in Iraq following the Juno Awards in Ottawa on Sunday.

She told reporters at a press conference that she opposed the war and supported the Prime Minister's decision to keep Canadian troops out of the conflict. She admitted that she did not follow the news on a daily basis, and said, "I'm not a really political person," but also said that she knew the "obvious things." The 18-year old Juno-winner went on to say,

"I don't have respect for the people that made the decisions to go with the war. I don't have much respect for Bush. He's about war, I'm not about war - a lot of people aren't about war."

"It's hard for me to talk about the war, " Avril told reporters, "I don't really know what to say but I can say that I'm really proud that our Prime Minister didn't fight."

If you're expecting me to say something smart here, well, can it. I respect Avril and her opinions!

I also respect the opinions of Mindy Sterling (who played the PeeWee character in the Austin Powers films): "I'm a Gore fan"

And, here's former Nirvana bassist Krist Novoselic on "Democrazy."

In less funny news, Jay Thomas, who I think is pretty darn funny, is apparently one of them too.

Look, you can play this game too! There are about 100 "liberal" "artists" listed at - natch - liberalartists.com, complete with their wacky, braindead quotes.

The moderator of the site is no brain surgeon either:

[in 1998, illustrating his] outdated musical taste... Bush as Governor of Texas, declared May 15 'ZZ Top Day'

Well, as much as I dislike classic rock, I gotta tell you 70s ZZ Top was pretty good. Sure, they lost it when they started in with the hot rod music videos and the velvet geetars, but before then they were a more than passable bluesy band. But, whatever.

At least two of the Backstreet Boys are "known Republicans."

I wonder if the William Morris Agency will try to shut down LiberalArtists?
