Oh . . . Linda, Linda, Linda . . .

I was a big fan of Governor Jerry Brown (he always smiles and never frowns) and thought it was cute when he got Linda Ronstadt as a rock-star girlfriend. It was adorable.

It's nice that some wealthy rock stars are liberal-leaning, left-leaning, Democrat-voting, thinking people. I am glad that some have the testicular, or in this case ovarian, fortitude to stand-up to evil that lurks in the guise of conservatism.

I was thrilled when Linda Ronstadt got herself fired from a casino in Las Vegas for praising Michael Moore (another really rich guy with left-leaning politics). Not enough left-leaning public figures will speak-up, especially in Vegas where Wayne Newton is the king of flag-waving, militaristic, dyed-hair, girdle-wearing, has-been Republican men.

I was happy that Ronstadt spoke-up . . . until I read this quote from her:
"I keep hoping that if I'm annoying enough to them, they won't hire me back."

If she doesn't want to work there, why is she accepting the gigs? I don't understand this at all, and it makes her look like a friggin' whacko. I find the whole thing very confusing. I like that she is openly praising Moore's film and referring to him as a patriot; but what is she doing working in casinos if she doesn't want to work there? Are times that tough? Are there no other venues for her?
