Gut Rumbles

this ain't right

I've made no bones about the fact that I don't like John Kerry. But I would NOT boo his daughters under ANY circumstances.

That's just rude.


Rob, I hate to disagree with you. When they decided to turn a music awards ceremony into an oportunity to pimp their daddy's political ambitions, they asked for rudeness.
People attending the awards did not go there to listen to those two. If this was a political rally, yeah, but not there.
Think of it, there are times when being rude is almost required. You should know.

I've got to agree with Rey. This is a big point that the entertainment industry is missing. Americans are sick to death of this. They want to entertained by these people, not told how to think.

I think the greater rudeness comes from their presumption that the rest of America holds them in god-like awe.

The blonde one looks like that french wanker in Brotherhood of the Wolf. Have you seen that movie?! Complete wanker.

I wouldn't boo them if they just came out and presented an award and kept their traps shut.
However, if they used the opportunity to shill for Fuckface, I'd throw rotten fruit at them.

Rob,The reason you say that is because you do not know them.
If you knew those two,you'd boo,too.

While it was tasteless for them to use that platform to their father's advantage, I am still shocked that they were booed given the venue...very surprising.

...almost as surprising as your declaration that "it ain't right."

Would you feel the same way if John Kerry had a couple of good-looking sons who were using that venue as a political arena?

(Methinks you have a soft spot for the purty ladies...)

I agree with YOU, Rob. I guess it's the "Southern Gentleman" in me.

As someone recently reminded me: "IF YOU CANT STAND THE HEAT, STAY OUT OF THE KITCHEN"

Fuck them...Keep yer trap shut or live with the consequences....

Ruth, you ain't telling me anything that I don't already know. Any time you step on a stage, you're hanging your ass out.

Live with what happens after that.

I still wouldn't have booed them. And I DON'T believe that they are gorgeous babes.

They look too much like their father.

Let's all remember, they booed the Bush twins, too, not just the Kerry girls. Of course, the Bush twins were on a pre-recorded video...but still. I have a feeling the boos were as much for those two as they were for the Kerry girls.

they were for everyone. Rey made the point that those people didn't go there to listen to anyone push the vote for either candidate. they came there for the music. Mtv stupidly thought that the audience would relate to them b/c they were young, but the audience didn't buy it.
