American Values in Action 

At last night's Kerry/Edwards fundraiser:

Whoopi Goldberg delivered an X-rated rant full of sexual innuendoes against President Bush ... Waving a bottle of wine, she fired off a stream of vulgar sexual wordplays on Bush's name in a riff about female genitalia, and boasted that she'd refused to let Team Kerry clear her material.
Um, okay. I seem to remember something yesterday about... wait... here it is in the same article...

Edwards said it was "a great honor" to be there and insisted, "This campaign will be a celebration of real American values."

Kerry thanked all the performers for "an extraordinary evening," hailed the "great producers" — Harvey Weinstein of Miramax and Jann Wenner - and said "every performer tonight ... conveyed to you the heart and soul of our country."
(emphasis is mine) I wonder how many undecided voters in the Heartland think that a has-been comic represents their values when she goes off on foul-mouthed tirades?

Celebrities making headlines by blasting Conservative leaders -- most notably President Bush -- is nothing new, and certainly nothing to get worked up about, especially when it's a B-list group like the ones quoted in the piece.

But I have a hard time understanding how the Kerry/Edwards camp could condone that at an official campaign function, after spending the past few days grandstanding about values.
