Politics: Madonna: 'We have a black Muslim in the White House'

By ROBERT LAURIE - Madonna promises to strip naked if Obama is re-elected - the stakes just got higher.

Throughout the current election, most celebrities have wisely quieted down.  One, however, is apparently not quite as smart. Last night, during her concert in Washington DC, aging singer Madonna gave what was, at best, a weird endorsement of President Obama.  She began by discussing the civil rights leadership of Abraham Lincoln and Martin Luther King Jr, before saying “And they killed him, as they do.”

Then, she pointed out how far we've come as a nation, claiming that “Now, it so amazing and incredible to think we have an African-American in the White House!”

She was fine up to this point, when things started to go off the rails.

“So, y’all better vote for f---ing Obama,” she yelled. “For better or for worse…we have a black Muslim in the White House.”

Ummm. OK.  I could have sworn we've been told that anyone who claimed Obama was a Muslim was part of a weird, racist, American subculture that "hated" for "hate's sake."  I guess that doesn't apply to Madonna, because she wants Obama to have a second term - badly.

So badly, in fact, that later in the show she removed most of her clothing to reveal the word "OBAMA" scrawled across her lower back.  She then promised that “When Obama is in the White House for a second term I'll take it all off.”

So....does she want him re-elected, or not?  Because I don't know anyone who wants to see that.

Look, we can all agree or disagree on policy.  Maybe you like Obama, maybe you can't stand him and think he's leading America down the path to destruction.  Either way, we should not be allowing our political process to be held in the grip of fear by a sinewy, over-the-hill popstar who's threatening to expose herself if he gets back into office. Shouldn't Homeland Security be involved in this, making sure that, post-election, millions of Americans don't tear their own eyes out when confronted with the visage of a bony, naked, Madonna prancing around on stage? 

Please, for the love of all that's holy, do not let this happen.
